Poured into a Perfect Pint.

A=Rich amber color, with creamy one finger head.

S=Fruity and hoppy...inviting.

T=Hearty...hint of spice and citrus. Normally, I don't care for spice and citrus, but this one works for me.

M=Excellent...just the right body...not too heavy, not too light.

O=I paired this with pizza rolls, which did not work well...this would work well with red meat, I think, as well as by itself. Very likely that I will purchase this next winter.

Point St. Benedict's Winter Ale is a slightly hazy copper ale with a yellowish head that fades to a waxy film and leaves outstanding lacing on the glass. Fruit and spice are in the aroma, with notes of cinnamon, pear and allspice. There is the slightest hint of caramel. It has a very soft and delicate medium body. It feels fluffy in the mouth and the finish is very dry and a little gritty. Wow, this is like a Belgian dark ale. The flavor is complex with a lot of deep and dark tones-- cinnamon and wood. There is a fruity note which is a little like apricot or cherry. It doesn't really taste sweet, though. Roasted bitterness lingers after the swallow. Wow, this is a really good Winter ale, even in Spring. This is a very rewarding beer.

Sampling right now on 12/11/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F and poured in to a pilsner glass.

This brew actually pours a pitch black in color with a thin tan head. Areas of spotty lacing is seen when sipped that ends up sliding back down the sides of the glass after a while. The aroma is of roasted malts like in a stout with some cocoa powder. Pretty much the same is said for the taste with a hint of dark fruit. Medium-bodied with low carbonation which is perfect for this type of brew. Very smooth and tasty brew for the colder months
