Was really looking forward to a great Winter Warmer last winter. What a disappointment. It came out with such a strong clove flavor as to be undrinkable. We are hoping that it will have calmed down by this winter. There were no instructions as to whether to do anything special with the cloves or when to remove them. They were in the milk chocolate stout pack. I recommend removing the cloves before using the packs. This could have been a great beer. Hope to try again without the cloves. As it is I will pour it over a ham before cooking.
