This year's winter warmer is complemented by cocoa nibs and Mexican Chocolate, while the German wheat beer yeast strain lends banana-rama goodness. Old Saint Chongo, patron saint of our monkey friends, requested this beer himself.

I'm used to winter warmers being more towards amber, but this beer seems to straddle the two "winter" categories of armed and stout. The beer is dark, definitely on the stout side. The nose is a quite nutty, with an overall feel towards the dark malt side.

The taste, however isn't as "dark", with some tartness and to me tends towards a more standard warmer. There are definitely some light roasted coffee notes that linger. Overall, I enjoyed this beer, but think if it were re-categorized as a stout, it might be a little lower rated.
