Nose: spice, malt, rich sugars, fruit.
Brilliant mahogany, 1" finely bubbled off-white foam cap, slowly dissipates to thick film, excellent lace.
Palate: rich, dark fruit, dark sugars, chocolate, prune to cherry, touch of cola grown in intensity by the finish, some pepper in the finish. Sweet but not cloying.
Chewy, medium low carbonation, fine and soft carbonation, creamy. (376 characters)

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brownish black with some hints of amber. Moderate amount of bubbles and a big three finger tan head which slowly fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.

Smell: A nicely roasty and sweet dark malt driven aroma with good hints of chocolate and dark fruit. Dark roasted malts with good hints of chocolate, biscuit, grains, toast, coffee, caramel, toffee, nuts, and yeast. Sweet scent of molasses and candied sugar. Dark fruit presence with hints of raisins, plum, prune, and dates. Also some earthy hops in the background. A very solid malty aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma suggests, a deep roasty and sweet dark malt driven taste with good notes of chocolate and dark fruit. Toasty dark roasted malts with a big taste of biscuit, chocolate, toast, coffee, grains, caramel, toffee, yeast, and nuts. Sweet taste of candied sugar and dark molasses. Dark fruit undertones with notes of raisin, prune, plum, and dates. Earthy hops linger in the background. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very creamy and somewhat syrupy. Finishes fairly smooth with only minimal alcohol heat.

Overall: A very good take on the winter warmer style. More on the roasty chocolate side than the spicy type. Kind of reminds me of Great Divide's Hibernation. (1,400 characters)

Very dark brown with red tint. Two fingers of head forms and settles to a thick cap. Very little lacing sticks to the glass.

The aroma consists of bready, caramel, and slightly nutty malt with hints of cocoa and candied sugar. Hops seem to be earthy with a slightest touch of pine.

Malty and earthy flavor. I wonder what yeast they used. Seems to be an American yeast. I would of preferred a British yeast that would of given more esters and buttery flavor. The candied sugar is tasted besides just bumping up the ABV. Get some nutty and chocolate notes.

Nice carbonation along with being medium bodied. Nicely coats the palate while still having active, lively feel. The use of oats probably helped a lot in this category.

Rather boring beer from Bad Weather as most American winter warmers generally are. Nice they did not wassail it but it could use a bit of boost from something other than the malt and sugar. (917 characters)

A. Dark. No transparency. Thick creamy head fades slow.

S. Malts. Cut grass. Coffee. Zesty lemony aroma. Very nice and refreshing.

T. Really complex. Got a touch of citrus up front. Malts and toasted grains. Bitter hops but not super strong. Peppery. A nice chocolate sweetness follows.

M Pretty light but there is some foamy richness. Boozy tangy aftertaste.

O. Good beer by a brewery that impresses me more and more with each beer I have. Mix of flavors is great. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. Sweet sour and bitter. I'll have this again.

Poured into shaker pint. (573 characters)
