Pours dark brown with two fingers of light tan long lasting head. Good amount of lacing on the side of the glass.
Smell is a faint whiff of malt. No bad aromas just not much going on.
Taste is sweet caramel chocolate a touch of coffee and a dark hop bitterness. Might find some molasses as well.
Mouthfeel is a bit on the light side. Carbonation is medium. Finish is slightly dry and bitter. Leaves you wanting another sip.
Overall an easy drinking beer and quite similar to many "winter warmers." Alcohol level is on the high side but is mostly hidden by all the rich flavors. Recommended.

Being a slayer fan I was super excited about this one.
A: pours an extremely dark brown with a very thin quickly disapating white head.
S: Not much going on in the nose. A bit of nuttiness, caramel malts, and a bit of cocoa Smells a bit festive would be a good way to describe this. Nothing overpowering.
T: nutty, a bit malty with slight coffee notes. with a very pronounced hop bitterness at the end that surprised me because I couldn't detect any hops in he nose. I like it a lot.
M: thin carbonation wish it was a bit more viscous. It left my lips a bit sticky.
Overall: I had high hopes for a beer that bared the name of the almighty thrash lords known as slayer. It did not let me down. I need to blast some altar of sacrifice while I enjoy this. I'd recommend this beer to any metal or hop head.

Fucking metal holiday artwork
copper color sparkling lacing around snifter
no smell really at all some maltyness
in the beginning sweet chocolate roasty taste with slight cherry hints and caramel malt hidden within and then a hoppy bitter finish
light syrupy mouth feel with light carbonation
defiantly a beer worthy of slayers name

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.
