Ninkasi's Sleigh'r, dark double alt ale. 7.2% ABV.

A: Hmm. Not as dark as I expected! Deep plum red, with fluffy of white head. Reminds me of a Santa suit, in that sense. How apropos! Just a slight bit of lacing. A hint of sheeting. Deep yellow, almost grey-looking, in the dimple.

S: Toasted cereal grain and a slight char make up most of the nose. Slight grassy/earthy hop. Hint of lime. Maybe a touch of cranberry?

T/MF: The hops take over a bit, but there's an almost balancing earthy cocoa flavor. I would like it better balanced the opposite direction, but this is not bad. Finishes reintroduces a bit of that toasted cereal grain into the mix.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.

Competent. Quite bitter, yet well balanced. Not as rich a mouthfeel as I'd expect from the look and taste. Would like more malt here.
