BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Ninkasi Brewing Company
Oregon, United States
ninkasibrewing.com

Style: Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Called 'Dark Double Alt' on the label.

Seize the season with Sleigh'r. Layers of deeply toasted malt are balanced by just enough hop bitterness to make it deceivingly drinkable. Paired with a dry finish, Sleigh’r is anything but your typical winter brew.

An Alt ferments with Ale yeast at colder lagering temperatures. This effect gives Alts a more refined, crisp lager-like flavor than traditional ales. The Alt has been “Ninkasified” raising the ABV and IBUs. Sleigh'r has a deep, toasted malt flavor that finishes dry and balanced.

50 IBU

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.
