First Snow Ale

6% ABV. Winter Warmer from RJ Rockers Brewing in Spartanburg, SC. Poured from 12 oz bottle into an old Falstaff beer drinking glass. Pours cloudy amber and short bubbly white head that gathers around the edges on the glass. Aroma is very spicy! Lots of cinnamon, ginger, and clove along with caramel and sweet malts. Taste is gingerbread cookies, caramel, cinnamon toast, and sweet malts. Bit of nuttiness and dried fruit notes coming through as well. Body is medium with moderate carbonation. Finishes with more strong spices – cinnamon and ginger, mostly – caramel, light nutty flavors, and sweet malts. Dried dark fruit as well. Very good winter beer. A sleeper winter warmer that seems to be underrated.
theBeerAuthority: B+
