2016 version - ageing nicely in my cool basement since winter ended and last few days in northern Alberta feel like the season is on the way... so break out the winter warmer. Pours a clear dark copper to brown. Aroma is molasses brown sugar sweetness with ginger spice. Taste follows sweet caramel malt with fruitcake - the bitterness is seemingly subdued from months ago when fresh. Highly recommend a few quality months of ageing - thought was good 6 months ago but verging on great now! Look forward to 2017 version.

Poured into a mug, the appearance was a stiff burnt dark amber close to dark brown color with a finger's worth of white foamy to semi-fizzy little head. Lace speckled for a little bit and then slid off at a moderate pace.
The aroma had a shapeshifting blend of ginger, allspice, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, dark fruits, light spruce, dark bread, clean caramel/toffee malt smoothness, and some pecans.
The flavor took the prior mix and stuffed in some peaches and nutmeg. All seemed to meld together to ride on into the aftertaste and follow through on the finish.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Though all of those spices were smelled and tasted, most of them allow for anything to be distracting to scrape any harshness felt along my tongue. Carbonation seemed to done well for this beer as even that doesn't seem to offer any harshness along my tongue.
Overall, despite the date it's currently reviewed on Beer Advocate, this was reviewed from fresh notes and honestly, if you're looking for a Winter Warmer that will definitely warm you up during the Winter holidays, this is one to seek out.

16oz draft pour into a pint glass displays a brick-red body floating a 1/2in cream colored head. Artistic lacing throughout.
Aromas include bright stone fruit, (peach and plum) under an almost smokey sweet malt with spice.
Flavor is the same and the spiciness (cardamum, orange peel, cinnamon) is identifiable.
Mouthfeel is medium with an oily finish.
Great with a burger.

Poured a brown body with decent head and lace. The aroma has bits of spice and sweet malts but mostly I get dark fruits. The beer does have a spicy and almost heated finish particular to winter warmer beers but it is mostly a thick/sticky beer that balances sweet malts (caramel/toffee) with dark fruits like figs, prunes and dates.

Bought this beer as a single. It was in a 12oz bottle, and I wanted to try a Winter Ale. This was the first one that I seen that caught my eye so I got it. The beer pours dark, it resembles the color of an acorn/chesnut. The head is very foamy and it left lots of lacing in the glass. The beer smells a little boozy and fruity. Malt also meets the nose. Overall it's a sweet smell. The beer tastes like dark chocolate, toffee, and a light splash of hops. It's a little malty in the back of the mouth. The beer is very smooth and warm going down. The beer a winter warmer. It has the remnants of light booze in the back of the throat, It's probably better as a sipper. Not bad I'd try it again.
