Notes / Commercial Description:
Winter Solstice® is our take on the classic style of “winter warmer.” Boasting a deep amber hue and rich mouthfeel, its creamy finish will lift your spirits. Hints of toffee, spice, and caramel tease the senses making this the perfect ale to share with friends and family during the cold days and long nights of winter.

12oz bottle poured into a mug, had this after having Sierra's Celebration, 'WOW' what a contrast. Poured a med amber with a 1/2" light tan head that reduced rather quickly. Aroma of toasted malt with overtures of nutmeg and fresh bread. A rich and flavorful beer with very little hop presence.. of course after a Sierra nothing has a hop presence unless your chewing on one. Even with the high alcohol level it is a very drinkable beer. Overall a very pleasant brew.
