This is my gold standard for winter warmers.
Malty, hoppy, and the perfect level of ABV to compliment.

Pours with a large, light brown head. Is reddish brown in color. Has a sweet, hoppy aroma combined with a caramel scent. Initial taste is sweet from the caramel. Finishing taste is slightly hoppy with a slight hint of alcohol. Overall taste is very similar to a brown ale without the bitterness. An amazing beer. Need to stock up next Fall with this.

My favorite winter warmer is Isolation Ale. I know I pump Odell Brewing's tires at every opportunity, but man, they make some excellent beers. This one has everything you'd want in a winter seasonal, plenty of flavor and actually not that much alcohol, so you can enjoy it without feeling weighed down by it. My only issue is that it's available so early that it's generally sold out by the time the holidays get here - maybe they could bump it back a month so it would carry over in to the new year. But that's just to say: get it while you can!

Odell generally goes yard on most of the things they do, but this one is remarkable.

Very simply, one of the very best beers I have ever had. It's seasonal, and I look forward to it eagerly.

This beer is quiet - there's a lot going on, but it all blends so well that the overall impression is one of unified, subtle but definite finesse; this right here is malt/roast/good-ol'-behind-the-scenes-wizardry flavor, not your rather more obvious hops.
