This seasonal release poured a nice dark brown. It's nose was a slight nuttiness with a hint of molasses. Strong coffee flavour with some caramel in the mouth as well as some hoppiness that wasn't very prevalent on the nose.

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.
