Not as syrupy sweet or hyper-spiced as most winter warmers. The malty Carmel taste is refreshing at first, with a slightly bitter, hoppy finish. This one has a mild skunk at the end, probably because it almost Easter and a bit late for a winter warmer. Of course the high today was in the mid- 20's and this is warming me up nicely.

I have always loved winter warmers and this one is in my top 5... maybe top 3.

Pours a reddish mahogany body with a 3/4inch off white-tan head. Good lacing.

Smell is an even mix of spice, hops and malt

Tastes like it smells, with just a hint of sweetness . A great even balance of flavors.

A nice full feel

Very well balanced ! Normally I like my winter warmers to be a little sweeter. But with this one I don't mind. Just the right mix of flavors .(If it was sweeter it might ruin that mix). Perfect for the thanksgiving meal every year.

Pours a two finger light brown, foamy head, with good retention and some spots of sticky lacing. Mahogany and slightly cloudy. Smells like candied dates and raisins. Taste is what I expect from the aroma, with a bittering finish. Lingering sensation of dark, dried fruits, as well as some plum. Feel is on thicker side and low carbonation. Light chewiness and somewhat viscous. A fun winter style beer and a good buy for the price.

Taste is molasses, caramelly, dark and sweet chocolate with slight barky hops. This makes for a nice bock like beer. A good winter warmer, although there are others in the style that I prefer.

Ruby red in the light. Thin lacing of head. Great color. Hint of tobacco, light nose overall, backbone of solid malts. Warm spicy and nicely blended. A bit of bright hop bitterness on the end . Some alcohol. Some murk in essence overall, but good residual carryover of spice and hint of yeast. Overall nice. Love some Deschutes, maybe earlier in the season next time?

2/28 - Bottle. Nice reddish brown pour with good body. Not a strong smell, but malt and spices were noticeable. Nice pour and a very good taste of herbs and orange. Felt good going down and had a decent kick. Overall very good beer and I'll be seeking this out down the road.

Finally! I feel like I can really call myself a beer lover now. I've tried one of Deschutes original beers. 2014 was silky smooth, hints of chicory and cherry, rounded by a huge malt finish. A hint of citrus zest but all together a great winter warmer. Warmed me right up! Do you expect anything less from Deshutes though? They're the best. A very good beer!

Appearance: Dark hazy brown with a rocky off-white head that left plenty of lacing.

Smell: Yeast and malt, slight spices.

Taste: Very good. Strong malts and yeast, faint spiciness (like apple pie), into moderate bitterness, just a touch of alcohol on the back end.

Mouthfeel: Medium thickness and carbonation.

Overall: All the parts fit together well. Full of flavor, not just spices. I wouldn't limit it to just Winter.
