Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Bone Warmer is brewed the same way, using only the first runnings from an extraordinarily thick, strong mash of Idaho 2-Row Metcalfe and Harrington barley malt, along with dark German Munich and caramel malts. We subtly spiced it with Idaho Chinook hops, fermented it at cool temperatures and cold-conditioned it for smoothness and drinkability.

The resulting ale is the color of roasting chestnuts. It is voluptuously malty and only slightly sweet- with a hint of toffee and a warming dry finish. It’s an ideal accompaniment to rich meaty stews, wild game, roasted fowl or root vegetables, and aged cheddars.

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

A: The beer is hazy brownish red in color. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leavin two crescent shaped semi collars around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel and toasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The overall tasting is rather malty and also has flavors of caramel and toasted malts along with some malty sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a nice amber ale if you like malty beers. Although it is very malty, it doesn't feel overly heavy on the palate to the point where it is difficult to drink.

Label info: Bottled on 08/12/13

Deep copper colored body with a thick, foamy, sticky head. Rather faint aroma, but what you catch comes across like lightly toasted grain and cereal; slight nuttiness. Light caramel and brown sugar flavor with a terse bitterness at the finish. Medium-light body; crisp.

A rather lightweight imperial ale, in my opinion. The taste is okay yet seems a bit thin; same with the body; and the aroma is surprisingly wispy, too. Still, there is gentle, grainy warmth nearly hidden beneath rather weak, up-front characteristics. Not bad overall, but not as boldly complex and deep and one might expect from an imperial ale.
