Winter Warmer |  8.00% ABV

Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our winter ale started as a rich, very malty brown ale with a little extra alcohol warmth and a spicy hop finish crafted from German Tettnanger hops. Then we aged it with white American oak. This gives the beer a sweet, spicy character with hints of vanilla.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Poured a hazy, ruby color with a one-finger, off-white head of foam. It left soapy trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of oak, some vanilla and toasty notes.

T - Nice spices you'd expect in a winter ale. Light oak and vanilla notes. A toasty caramel malt presence.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale.

O - This is a good beer. They're brewing up some good big beers at Prison Brews.

Serving type: on-tap

4.03/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Opaque brown body with a thick tan head and lace with a lot of staying power.

Smell: It has very strong malt aroma with bit of spice and alcohol.

Taste: Very sweet and malty with some bit and warmth from both the alcohol and the spice.

Mouthfeel: This is a very creamy and full bodied beer that remains smooth.

Overall: My favorite beer at the Prison Brews by far. It is an awesome winter warmer and I think a growler of it would make a great gift for the holidays.

Serving type: on-tap
