So incredible. That is all I have to say. There is nothing I would rather come home to on a snowy winter day than this beer.

Pretty boozy. Nothing special, except for the fact that there's no weird ass gingerbread spices floating around in this one.

22 picked up today at the COOP but seen it around town at most of the usual haunts.. Pours a very deep red.. pretty clear.. light khaki head.. Smells like dark toast and malt extract stewed in water.. A bit of grassy/earthy hoppiness helps... Flavor is really weird to me, tastes like malt extract water .. Tons of toasty maltiness/melanoidin malt(?) without enough hop bitterness or (especially) hop flavor to balance.. Not a fan..

I could have been much worse on this one.. but perhaps my taster is broken tonight.. But I don't think so.

22 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Cloudy brown-amber body with a weak head.
Aroma: toffee; dark bread; bisquits; plums; mixed spices.
Flavor: complex and dynamic, with a sweet start and a moderate load of hops kicking in mid-taste, adding mild bitterness and nice herbal and floral notes.
O: distinct, interesting and recommended.

Pours a hazy amber red with decent head and nice lacing. Aromas of caramel, cinnamon, and spice. Tastes of medium roasted malts of caramel and light brown sugar up front with bittering hops and cinnamon and nutmeg dominating the aftertaste. A hopped up ESB, not fantastic but not undrinkable although could use more alcoholic umph! to make it a true "warmer", although it is a creeper. Not the best of the winter warmers, but far from the worst. Cheers

A: Ruby amber hued body with a thick creamy tan head leaving behind good lace. Decent head retention.
S: Toffee, caramel malt aromas. A hint of spice and cinnamon becomes apparent as it warms.
T: Malt forward flavors start sweet with caramel, toffee and brown sugar notes. The finish is dry, lightly hoppy, spicy & bitter.
M: Chewy body that is smooth with a clean dry bitter back end.
O: Balanced spicy malt-centric warmer that is perfect for even colder spring days.

A nice beer to quaff. Minimal head, more than ample carbonation, not a great deal of lacing. Smells like you would expect an ale to smell. A little woodsy, even. Strong hop presence, firm bite at first taste. Good afterburn. I liked this ale well enough, but there was nothing terribly interesting or exciting about it. Just a good, solid ale with a pleasing taste.

22 ounce bottle, it's a new arrival at my local beer store so I assume it's pretty fresh. It's the new red screen printed label so I think it's a 2013 bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear reddish/copper color with an inch off-white head that sticks around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like citrusy hops, nuts, toffee, and some bready malt. It tastes like citrusy and spicy hops, toffee, nuts, bready malt, and some light fruit and vanilla. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and syrupy, and has a good amount of carbonation. It's certainly not a traditional winter warmer, but I think it's a good beer. It was certainly a nice surprise compared to the usual heavily spiced winter warmers out there. This is the first No-Li beer I've had, so I'll have to try more of their brews now. $7.99 a bomber.

Pours into an impy nonic a clear brilliant ruby with a half finger slightly off white lacey head atop.Aromas of brown sugar,vanilla,and light nuttiness,not much hop presence.Flavors ar of that brown sugar and nut along with caramel toffee,a good smack of spiciness from the hops in the finish.My first winter seasonal of the year and yet again Iam left pretty impressed with No-Li.
