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

Had on tap last night. Good thing I had it when I did as it ran out later in the evening!

A - lovely red color, nice head

S - citrus, sweet, pine from hops

T - malty sweetness up front, a bit of hoppiness

M - medium bodied, smooth yet nicely carbonated

D - really enjoyable; too bad it wasn't a bid colder out last night for this winter warmer! I could definitely see hunkering down in the pub and rocking a few of these though; it wasn't available in bottles around here (hardly anything from Avery is it seems like) but I would've picked it up

Fluffy, cobwebby off-white head which leaves some lace on the glass. Aroma is mild floral and spicy hops with notes of chocolate. Deep copper-red, which is more brown than red. Full-bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavor is notes of chocolate, caramel, nuts, slight diacetyl, dark fruits, followed by spicy hops and slight warming alcohol (this is 8.0%? I'm surprised) Finish is roasted malt, paper, and light grain bitterness.
