Our newest blended strong ale, Winter Wookey, comes just in time for the California winter this year. A blend of Wookey Jack and un-oaked Double DBA, Winter Wookey brings dark chocolate covered dried cherry, candied apple, orange zest and toffee flavors together in a complex, warming blend. Deceivingly drinkable for its size, Winter Wookey balances a big, malty body with a complementary spectrum of hop aroma and bitterness.

an awesome blend here from firestone, these guys are the king of this. unoaked dba meets wookey jack. the black pepper spice from the rye malt comes through in the nose of the flat looking honey textured caramel colored beer. i get the esb malt base too, and then a whole bunch of hops that seem piney and bitter in the nose. the flavor is really complex with the darker malt of wookey and that english sweet malt of dba, i think they go together extremely well. the hops and the sweetness fight a little in the finish, but i think the battle is congruent and not distracting. pine is robust here, but it doesnt last long, as for me at least, the sweet malt ultimately wins out. the alcohol is scarily not really there. i feel it absolutely, but even as the beer warms i dont taste much hotness. i like the feel, it doesnt need any more than its mild carbonation, and its thick body is nice in cold weather. this is a slow sipper for certain, but i think a nice mix of two really different beers. well done.
