The Widmer Brrr pours a dark amber with a modest off-white head. The aroma, as should be expected from a winter warmer, smells strong, like a boozy Christmas pudding.
OK, maybe it's not as spicy as that but the flavor does not disappoint. This beer is hoppy. It's not bitter but spicy and faintly sweet, but not close to the "candy sweet finish" the label promises.
The mouthfeel is good. The beer is definitely warming. I have to say that I was shocked when I saw that this beer had a 7.2% ABV. The good thing about winter warmers is that the spiciness hides the alcohol. The bad thing about winter warmers is that they can be so damn spicy. When they get it right they can be great and the Widmer Brrr is pretty damn good.
