Style: Winter Warmer

Notes / Commercial Description:
In the US this is called "Winter Ale".

A dark ale brewed specially for the Christmas season, with a rich, complex taste of caramel. This is a strong, dark and rather sweet Christmas Beer – just the way we think a Christmas beer should be.

19°P, 30 IBU.

Ingredients: Lager, Munich, caramel, black, and chocolate malt; Chinook, Columbus, and Centennial hops; English ale yeast, and our local Grimstad water.

16.9oz bottle, no date. Pours hazy brownish black with a huge, overflowing khaki head. Smells of sour fruit, bready/roasted malt, caramel, spice, cocoa, and earthy hops. The taste follows with sour fruit, roasted malt, caramel, spice, and hops. Lots of tartness and medium bitterness. Very high carbonation and average body.

Unfortunately, this must have been the beginnings of a bad bottle. Very disappointing because it was hard to find on the shelf and I love Winter Warmers. Will revisit this again soon.

Bottle from Whole Foods labelled as Winter Ale. Nothing exciting on the pour, flat dark brown pour, non-existent head. Malty, woody aroma, dark roast, burnt toast, peat. Some alcohol heat evident in aroma, very warming on taste. medium weight, slightly slick and oily. Hints of savory spice finish the whole thing.

Really dark brown color with medium brown, creamy head. Aroma has really nice malts, caramel, a bit smokey, chocolate and some faint dark fruits. Taste is slightly sweet at first with dark chocolate, cacao, butterscotch and roasted malts. Finish is slightly hoppy, roasty and bitter. Really heavy body with smooth carbonation. A very good example of a winter beer, heavy bodied, balanced, smooth and easy to drink.
