Pours a very dark copper/brown, nice biege head that lingers on the edges.
Smells very malty, earthy and dark
Taste is a knockout of malts, earth, green hops, slight spicy notes of allspice. This is definitely a warmer, best sipped by a warm fire on a cold night. Dense bubbly mouthfeel, lingering aftertaste of wood and earth.
Nicely crafted brew that fits it's style very well. I'd buy more.

Pours a dark copper with a thick off white head with great retention. Foam sticks to the sides as it recedes to a foam cap.

Aroma is malty and sweet, somewhat fruity. Where is the spice profile of a winter warmer...? Aroma is pleasant, though.

Taste...malty, slightly hoppy at the end, I detect some chocolate. Some amounts of roasted flavors..all going together well.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth. For the ABV, this is a highly drinkable beer. Alcohol taste is fairly subdued.

A: snifter. pours a clear mahogany color. light tan head. moderate retention level and decent lacing.

S: pears, fig, some spices, mostly clove, and some plums.

T: big caramel notes, with some fig, plums, some cinnamon and clove. very malty brew. delicious.

M: big full bodied brew. solid carbonation level. very nice palate.

D: ABV appears to be high, noticed in the flavor. solid beer for the holiday season. wonderful brew. about two of these should warm you up.

Yum. Delicious winter beer, with a nice balance that hides the alcoholic punch.

Pours slightly hazy, amber/copper with nice head and good lacing. Aroma is malty, caramelly and slightly spicy. The flavor is malty, caramelly, with a cinnamon-like spice and a rich hop bite and bit of bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy and mellow. The spice and bitterness linger on the finish.

Enjoyed in a snifter @ 45* from a 2011 bottle

Appearance is reddish brown/mahogany with a one finger off white head.

Smell is grain/malt not sweet, and definitely some peated malts in there. Resembles a scotch ale.

Taste is malty but not sweet, I'm sticking with my peated malt, bit of hops. It has good flavor.

Overall it is good. Winter Warmer is a very vague catagory, similair to barley wine the range is broad. This is very malty without being sweet. It has a smokiness to it that resembles a scotch ale.

A- poured a pretty clear brown with red hues to it, a thin tan head built up on top, thin head built up then fell back down

S- coffee type smells

T- Smooth maltinee, dark malts. clean finish, strong malts, but it leaves the malts in the forefront.

M- heavy body, light carbonation

D- pretty solid
