4.68/5  rDev +19.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from 12 oz bottle to Isolation Ale glass. Date stamped on bottle: 3/29/11

A - Mildly hazy with a burgundy color. Solid 2 finger head which seemed to linger for a long while and thick bubbly lacing.

S - A blend of toasty chocolate biscuity malts. A hint of earthy tone hops.

T/M - It is a crisp yet smooth mouthfeel with medium body. It's clean yet the hops leave a noticeable bitterness from start to finish. The aroma transitions to the flavor in the middle when the toasted biscuit and chocolate malts enter the palette. Slight sweetness on the tail end with a hint of the earthy hops.

D - You can't have just one.

Overall this is a well balanced brew that doesn't annihilate your senses with too much alcohol or hops or malts. I look forward to this release every year and 2010's offering was very good. A great offering and represents the Winter Warmer style well. I would easily recommend this beer.

4.36/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: pours a healthy 2" sudsy cream colored head. Recedes slowly leaving decent lacing. Color is deep amber, slightly cloudy, with moderate carbonation.
Aroma: strong malt presence with raisins, caramel, and whole wheat bread. A bit of earthy hops in the background.
Mouthfeel: standard fluffy English ale mouthfeel, fairly light bodied with a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: a hearty brew. The malt dominates (as expected) with those raisin, caramel, and whole wheat bread (toasted) flavors leading the way. There is also a moderate hop presence in the middle and finish and a bit of lingering alcohol burn with the swallow. Delicious and well made ale.
