Warsteiner Winter

This 5.6% ABV beer is a winter seasonal special release from the Warsteiner brewery in Warstein, Germany. 

The beer pours a clear and gem-like deep amber and copper. There is a relatively short head of light tan foam. The aroma is malty, nutty, caramel and toffee, with some dark fruit. The taste follows the aromas, a very roasted and toasted malty beer, with caramel, toffee, nuts, and dark fruits. The taste amps the fruit up more than in the aroma. Despite all the malt, there is enough hops for a very dry and lightly bitter finish. The beer drinks with a lightly stinging carbonation. This drinks much like an Oktoberfest, but has a bit more fruit than you would find in that style, and is a bit more roasted.
