This is a lovely winter warmer. It is substantial, dark combination of chocolate, coffee and dark fruits. Winterbaun errs on the side of bitter (bakers chocolate and hops) rather than sweet. There is a nice boozy afterburn that provides a warming finish.

Enjoyed from the 12 oz bottle in a pint glass, this fine winter warmer pours a deep mahogany brown with a firm light tan head that dissipates to a big bubbled ring with great soapy lacing. Nose of chocolate and caramel malts, reminiscent of a dopplebock, with some moderate hop bitterness in the background. Flavors follow most exquisitely with roasted dopplebock like notes, chocolate, some dark fruit flavor profile of plum and raisin, and a mild hop bitterness cutting through the back to even it all out. VERY nice and substantial with a smooth yet bracing mouth feel with a decent amount of alcoholic warmth on the back. Excellent!

Cheers!

Very dark appearance with mild head and carbonation. Sweet herbal aroma. Spice, tobacco, chocolate malt sweetness. Slightly ashy at the end of the sip.

Deep Amber/caramel color. Decent malty nose. Hoppy yet malty and sweet, almost like a lighter imperial stout. Nice bitterness at the end. Very tasty.
