Yum. Delicious winter beer, with a nice balance that hides the alcoholic punch.

Pours slightly hazy, amber/copper with nice head and good lacing. Aroma is malty, caramelly and slightly spicy. The flavor is malty, caramelly, with a cinnamon-like spice and a rich hop bite and bit of bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy and mellow. The spice and bitterness linger on the finish.

Enjoyed in a snifter @ 45* from a 2011 bottle

Appearance is reddish brown/mahogany with a one finger off white head.

Smell is grain/malt not sweet, and definitely some peated malts in there. Resembles a scotch ale.

Taste is malty but not sweet, I'm sticking with my peated malt, bit of hops. It has good flavor.

Overall it is good. Winter Warmer is a very vague catagory, similair to barley wine the range is broad. This is very malty without being sweet. It has a smokiness to it that resembles a scotch ale.

A- poured a pretty clear brown with red hues to it, a thin tan head built up on top, thin head built up then fell back down

S- coffee type smells

T- Smooth maltinee, dark malts. clean finish, strong malts, but it leaves the malts in the forefront.

M- heavy body, light carbonation

D- pretty solid

Had on tap last night. Good thing I had it when I did as it ran out later in the evening!

A - lovely red color, nice head

S - citrus, sweet, pine from hops

T - malty sweetness up front, a bit of hoppiness

M - medium bodied, smooth yet nicely carbonated

D - really enjoyable; too bad it wasn't a bid colder out last night for this winter warmer! I could definitely see hunkering down in the pub and rocking a few of these though; it wasn't available in bottles around here (hardly anything from Avery is it seems like) but I would've picked it up
