A- Pours a deep reddish-brown, molasses color, Off-white head, nice lacing.
S- Brown sugar, dark fruits, a bit of roasted malt, but mostly quite sweet.
T- A lot less sweet than the nose, it's smoky and the malts really shine here.
M- Smooth, medium carbonation, drinks as a high abv winter ale should.
O- I found this to be a well-done winter ale, sweet and smoky where you want it.

Little disappointed in this Winter Ale. This is a great brewer But this is not their best work. A bit flat with a good but uninspired taste...there are much better winter ale options out there.

A- Pours a deep rich mahagony that turns ruby in the light. Not a lot of head. Traces of ridged lacing like a crimped pie crust outline.

S- Not a lot of aroma, mostly malt- dark wheat bread, sweet malt syrup, a little roasty but not much. Can't smell any ginger or spices as the label mentions.

T- More roast then the smell. Still a lot of malt. Darker than the smell. A little smokiness.

M- Leaves a sweet residue in the mouth and on the lips.

O- A little one note. I definitely would have liked some more spice. Nothing particularly wrong with it, but not a lot going on.

Pours an amber color with white/yellow head. Aroma of sugary malts and a bit of booze. In the taste, brown sugar, cocoa powder, and nutty malts. Low bitterness and even balance. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Drinks easily given the strength. Overall a great beer, really tasty.

12 ounce bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It is a ruddy brown with rust highlights. An inch of mocha head tops it.

S - I get some caramel malt, but it is complimented by some cocoa and cinnamon.

T - The taste has more of a cocoa backbone. I get a hint of cinnamon.

M - Medium

O - It's a solid winter warmer. It doesn't knock my socks off, but I could drink a few of these.
