Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 11-11-2001

Deep mahogany in color, our full-bodied winter warmer is brewed in the spirit of British winter ales. Crafted with a flurry of roasted chocolate and caramel malts, and generously hopped, it delivers a smooth finish that makes this beer the perfect cold weather companion.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a dark, cloudy, mahogany color with three fingers of oatmeal-colored head that sloooooowly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Tons of spice up front, such as clove, licorice, dark molasses and black pepper, followed by some toasted malt and a lot of Belgian yeast funkiness. There are some notes of dried stone fruit as well, such as prunes and raisins.

Taste: Good toasted malt up front, immediately followed by some Belgian yeast, lots of stone fruit such as plums, raisins, figs, finished by some brown sugar-like sweetness. Not much in the way of hops, though.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and very effervescent. With an ABV of 7.0%, there is just a touch of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a very interesting beer. Much more Belgian than English than I was expecting. Great notes of fruit and spice.

An old favorite in the ski lodge, but not particularly amazing. Sweet, malty.
