Notes / Commercial Description:
This Cyclone was brewed with the winter months in mind. Each delicious sip will conjure memories of a holiday fire and happy times from winters past. Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove and vanilla abound in the aroma and flavor of this brew, surely bringing out your best holiday spirit. Peter has a strong malt background with a slight brown sugar sweetness from Belgian crystal malt. He is lightly hopped to create a complex balance between malt, hops and the loads of spices added during fermentation.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Thick bubbly lacing has no problem sticking to the glass all the way down. Bright brassy dark amber color with a well enough clarity. Mulling spices in the aroma with a hint of caramel and fruity alcohol. Smooth and creamy fuller body. Lots of spice on the palate but more than enough malt for it to rest upon. All spice meet caramel and faint raisins. Toasted grain and caramel from the malt. Alcohol is warming but not too estery. Hops help to balance in the sweeter spicy finish.

One of the best spiced winter ales I have had in a while ... great job guys!!

P- Thanks to my buddy Joe from RI for this one.

A- a murky amber color with a nice lacing. Head comes and goes quickly, maybe half a finger. Cloudy and hazy color as well.

S- stron pungent dark candied fruit. A caramel flavor of malt comes out nicely as well. Very nice smell. looking forward to the taste.

T- a sweet spice of raisin and plum coat the tongue. a nice complement of caramel malt as weel. i am impressed.

M- A creamy body that feels chewy like a raisin cookie. Nice.

O- The previous newport beer i had was the amber and that was nothing compared to this. This beer is great. Goes down and smooth and flavorful as well.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a dark red color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a lot of spices, some dark fruit, caramelized malts and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of dark fruit and caramel. Then a strong spice flavor comes in. The malt character is hearty and there's a mild but complementary hops presence creating a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, nice beer to drink for a long time if you're in the mood for the style.

Pours a nice dark amber color, nice carbonation, little fizzy off-white head, with minimal sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with some nice spice notes. The taste is malty, sweet, cinamon, nutmeg, lots of caramel. Medium body, ABV is hidden very well. Drinkable, a nice brew, was expecting more though.

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic.

Pours a deep amber color with a thin white head and some decent lace that sticks to the glass.

The aroma is quite nice filled with cinnamon, nutmeg and some caramel.

This is freaking delicious! The spices dominate the taste but don't overwhelm. The spices blend well together and their is a nice hint of hop bitterness in the end.

I have to say well done Newport Storm. This is one cyclone I hope they bring back.

Shot glass-flight, reviewed 10/27/11

Pour-Little effervescence, no head, light amber orange, a tiny amount of lacing.

Nose-Huge nutmeg, cinnamon, some other spices as well.

Palate-Very weird sweetness, hint of bitter. Woody, nutmeg, other spices, certainly kind of earthy.

Body-Medium heavy, syrupy, a little bit of effervescence. I don't really like this, though the nose really excited me at first.

It's possible my bottle was too old, judging from when the first reviews came out.

Bottle. Courtesy of CharlesDarwin. Poured into a New Belgium tulip glass a slightly hazed amber orange color with a 1 finger offwhite head that leaves some lace as it settles. Some spice in the nose with notes like cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice with a subtle dose of sweet smelling fruit as well. Reminds me of smelling fruitcake or something like that except the aroma isn't as strong. Medium/light mouthfeel. Hmm, for a spiced ale it really misses the spot. It starts off with a mild holiday spice but then quickly fades to a slight bitterness. I will say that the 7.5% abv isn't all that noticeable. It's ok, nothing extreme or out of the ordinary.

This along with several other were brought back from a trip that my sister took to RI for me. This beer poured out as a slightly murky brown color. Some highlights of red and orange in there too. The head comes and goes quickly. There isn't any lacing here. The smell of the beer is spicy. I'm getting lots of clove from this beer. The taste reminded me of a gingersnap cookie, again lots of clove flavors and some other lighter warming flavors in the mix. The mouthfeel was pretty good, had decent carbonation and a nice drinkable body to it. Overall I enjoyed this brew, and I'm very happy to have tried it.

12oz into Bells tulip.

A- Nice caramel brown with a slightly off white 1cm head that settles quick with moderately heavy lacing.

S- Winter spices, dark fruit.

T- Earthy bitterness... nice dark fruits and a bit of peppery spice. Tastes like a cold fall day. Spice grows on the tongue and is very nice. Toffee/caramel maltiness. Fruit is tasty and vibrant, not muddled in the background.

M- Great body and carbonation on this one. Nice lingering finish and the flavors sit well.

D- Moderate but good. I am going to pick up some more of this. A very good take on the style, one I'd buy as a winter seasonal if they brewed it again (hint hint)
