Ever so slightly fruity with a hoppy kick and a pleasant caramel after taste.

Great stuff - its seasonal, so get it while you can.

It's a good beer...my taste tends to be a bit heavier though.

As an IPA drinker, I tend to stick with Sierra Nevada Celebration, but I've enjoyed a Harpoon Winter Warmer or two for breakfast on more than one Christmas. (Tastes like cinnamon and bananas--best cold weather breakfast beer since Guinness.)

Russian Imperial Stout from Iron Hill Brewery in Newark, DE. A pretty heavy beer (my wife won't touch) but wow, the flavor. Not really a seasonal beer but a fine one.

ill have to try this. ive been very bored with beer as of late.

recently finished off six packs of:

Arrogant Bastard - not a fan. someone left a 6 at my house
Point St Benedict's Winter Ale - pretty good
Blue Moon Winter Abbey - pretty good as well

ive been underwhelmed by winter brews, and bought a 6pk of miller lite.

i want evolution to start shipping their beers up here.
also became a huge fan of 21st amendment brewery, but i think the local liquor store stopped carrying them.

im in a beer rut. someone help.

Enroll in the "Beer of the Month" club.

My wife got it for me for Christmas. I get a 12 pack of beer a month, 6 domestic, 6 import, 4 different kinds. The German stuff I got in January was fantastic.

Heck - if anyone wants to try it, let me know, I can get you half off your first month.

I'm not the world's biggest fan of Black Ales. Although I can't say I've ever had anything from New Belgium Brewing.

Currently drinking:


Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout
It pretty much lives up to the hype, just be ready for a Russian Imperial Stout. Mrs. Mayor has exactly 1 of these before bedtime, starts babbling about dumb shit, then passes out. This is when I take advantage of the opportunity to play NHL '12 uninterrupted. Good times.

i've had the he'brew. not really a fan.

BUT!!!

the bittersweet lenny R.I.P.A. is amazing and a MUST HAVE.

we have friends who live near rehoboth beach in DE, and i had this at the pickled pig pub down there.

if you're ever in the area, have to stop in.
IT'S A MORAL IMPERATIVE!!!

I regularly enjoy New Belgium Brewery's line of beers and Snow Day is a very nice addition to their seasonal list. Not to be missed.

Great Lakes Christmas Ale is THE winter beer. No wonder it's called Christmas Crack in Cleveland.

One or two Harpoon Winter Warmers a year are delicious. I made the mistake of buying a whole twelve-pack. Holy cow, did I ever get sick of that beer! Even my wife was complaining about just the smell of it.

Thanks to that "British Beer" thread I tried out the Innis & Gunn original this past weekend. I liked the flavor but it had a syrupy-sweet quality to it that I didn't care for. Is the Rum Cask version similar?

I think my cold-weather favorite is Samuel Smith's Winter Welcome Ale. That's some good drinking right there.

You could go get one fresh out of the tap if you lived near the brewery. Like me. devil

I am jealous!

A local pub carries it on tap - but they are down to their last couple of kegs and won't be replacing them...

Start Home Brewing. Totally worth it. Then you can customize beer to your preference.

My wife likes the "Snow Day" a lot as well. I'm OK with it but prefer something less sweet. (I guess I mean "less malty" since this is beer.)
