BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Long Trail Brewing Co.
Vermont, United States
longtrail.com

Style: Scottish Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
A Vermont classic returns in 2017!

Built to take the bite from a cold winter night, Hibernator features a rich malt base highlighted by warming notes of caramel and toffee. Don't sleep on this rich, robust winter brew.

Last year we awoke the bears with a limited run of cans offered at our brewery in Bridgewater Corners. In 2017, we're culminating a year of throwing it back to our roots, by sending Hibernator out for a full run of distribution in 6pks and 12pks of 12 ounce bottles and on draught.

Keep your eyes out for it as the weather cools down!

The appearance has a dark brown/almost dark golden colored body with a small white head that lasts just a couple seconds. Spotty lacing running down the sides of the glass. The smell has some mild roasted malts along with some nuts. The taste is slightly sweet through the roasted malts. The palate is light and sessionable with a mild nutty aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is good for the style, and awesome to me.

Bottle shared by Kelly and Paul, thanks for the opportunity! deep brown color off white head. Rich toffee and caramel with a bit of butterscotch and movie theater butter. Decent beer.
