Poured out of a 12oz bottle as part of a Ninkasi brewers box. Sleighr is dark amber, almost black in the glass. An enthusiastic pour produces a rather disappointing thin head that dissipates quickly. This disappointment didn't last long because this brew tasted great. It does taste malty, but certainly not overly so. The smell and taste are somewhat akin to fermented blackberry. A mild Christmas beer with a well camouflaged ABV at 7.2 it taste more like a 5.5.

Overall a very enjoyable beer. Glad Ninkasi is holding it down for us folks here in Oregon.
