Winter Warmer

These malty, sweet offerings tend to be a favorite winter seasonal. A big malt presence, both in flavor and body, leads the way. The color of this style ranges from brownish reds to nearly pitch black. Hop bitterness is generally low and balanced, but hop character can be pronounced in the aroma. Alcohol warmth is not uncommon. Many English versions contain no spices, though some brewers of spiced seasonal ales will slap "Winter Warmer" on the label. Those that are spiced, tend to follow the "wassail" tradition of blending robust ales with some combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and the like before hops became the chief "spice" in beer. American varieties many have a larger presence of hops both in bitterness and flavor.

ABV: 5.5–8.0% | IBU: 35–50 | Glassware: Goblet (or Chalice)
