Winter Warmer, Magnolia Pub and Brewery, San Francisco California
We took a recent trip to San Francisco and were lucky to discover the Magnolia Pub & Brewery on Haight Street. They had their Winter Warmer on tap, so we gave it a try -
It pours opaque.
The aroma is roasty mild sweetness and malt.
The taste is roasty malt finished with vanilla. However, it is not too sweet at all. There is no spice, but a full-body malt that gets better as it warms.
The aftertaste is mild bitter with mild vanilla sweetness.
I definitely recommend it to anyone in San Francisco - I don't think they bottle at all, so you have to go to them - which isn't a bad thing at all!
It is 7.8% with 15 IBU's
