Winter Warmer Ale at the end of the summer!
I brewed a Winter Warmer ale on December 6 and was hoping to enjoy it late last February. It was still pretty harsh. I had another one a month later and it was coming around. Another one in May and a bit better. I cracked one a few minutes ago and although it foamed a lot it is great.
Now for another month or so and cool weather sitting by a fire...
Based on Mason's Winter Ale. A recipe I found on the interweb somewhere.

I had this happen with an IPA I made. tasted it right out of the carboy as I was bottling and it tasted like gasoline. a couple of months later and it's sublime.
