Another excellent addition to the Bridgeport lineup of distinct and very enjoyable ales. Recently snatched a sixer of these and numerous other goodies out for friends and familar during New Year's last night and everyone commented highly on Ebenezer, even those who generally don't drink craft styled brews.

This rich and extremely full bodied ale pours very well and delivers a very nice woft of sweet malty aroma. Gives off a decent sized, long lasting head with good lacing.

A rich and sweet tasting ale that delivers hints of toffee, caramel, and a hint of spiciness. I enjoyed this both as an afternoon warming drink as well as an after dinner teaser to go along with some left over Xmas cake. A double duty brew that's worth taking a closer look at when the opportunity arises.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured clear, red-amber in color, and topped by a very good head.
Malty and very lightly spicy (perhaps just from hops). Some chocolate appears by the finish, and is quickly joined by a hint of coffee. Aftertaste is dominated by dark roasted malts.

O: decent but unexceptional brown ale.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12oz : tulip

Pours a clear, deep mahogany red with a fairly large amount of fine sediment floating throughout. Foamy, fairly short lived, creme colored head.

Subtle blend of caramel malts with light accents of dark fruit and cocoa. Fairly faint spicy hop profile.

Medium body, foamy, fizzy carbonation.

A standard, yet well done Winter Warmer. Though there was nothing wrong with it I would have liked to have drank it when it was a bit more fresh.

12oz bottle to New Belgium Globe.

A: Clear reddish/brown body, decent head and lacing.

S: Bready malt and malt sugars, a decent backbone of sweetness accented by orange peel and light spices; faint nutmeg and allspice. Slightly toasted, with the suggestion of nuts.

T: Some more balancing hops make their presence known here, and again the citrus component is discernible. Bready malts, with faint caramel and brown sugar, and background spices.

MF: Lighter medium body, fairly balanced with sweetness and low bitterness.

O: A fairly decent drinker, this is a lighter winter warmer that doesn't go overboard on spices or other adjuncts. I had low expectations, and they were met.
