Style: Winter Warmer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Slick Nick Winter Ale is our most popular seasonal ale. The caramel and black malts we use to brew Slick Nick gives it the deep amber color. This insidious brew is best enjoyed during New England's freezing winter months. Slick Nick himself is pictured on our label casing out the Victoria Mansion in Portland Maine on a blustery night. Warm up with one of Maine's best winter offerings.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

12 oz. bottle.

Slightly hazy ruddy copper body. Slim finger of gauzy, sticky, cobwebby, dirty beige head. Some lacing. Sugary malts with fruity notes of plum and Concord grape. A little bitter molasses edge. Fruit cake-y with subtle spices (allspice and ginger?).

Caramel, slightly toasted malt up front. Plum and grape fruitiness fill up the palate. Tannic, bitter edge picks up mid-way through. Faint spice notes, but the herbal, woody bitterness is too strong for it. Dryer in the finish, thanks to the bitterness. Some lingering fruit malt sweetness. Not bad, but a little harsh on the bitterness. Medium bodied with a creamy feel.
