Clouds grow dark, the wind picks up, a chill sets in -- the weather is not looking good. Thankfully, our winter seasonal OMINOUS is the perfect beer for this situation. Warming from the inside out, it’s a good reason to stay indoors. At 7.5% abv, this Midwest Warmer has layers to stand up to the most frigid of winter nights or rain-soaked spring days. American, English and Belgian malts come together to satisfy the soul with a rich, nutty, roasted flavors. Dark candi sugar brings out hints of dates, raisins, plum and chocolate. OMINOUS is a dark storm of a beer - big, intense and something to keep your eye on.

Pours a slightly murky dark brown pour with one finger of dark tan head. Nose is nice and malt forward with some rusty notes that say Munich to me. Earthy and rustic malt notes with a little bit of dark fruit and caramel/burnt sugar.

commonmac (673) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Tap at the brand new New Bohemia in Golden Valley. Bumped pint glass. Dark brown, essentially black in color. Aroma is slightly roasted malt with a little molasses. Taste carries the roasted qualities forward without throwing it out of balance. Definitely a porter but on the more mild, approachable end of the spectrum. Better than expected. Nice bite at the end. Worth a try if you can look past the signs.

Very dark brown color with a large head. A molasses and rummy aroma. Plenty of candi sugar and dates or figs. Full bodied. Heavy malt flavor. Some vanilla sweetness, but surprisingly dry. Dark fruit character and light rum sticking around. Really quite delicious.

Skyview (5310) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2014
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN, Pours a dark opaque brown colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind a thick creamy ring and film top. Aroma of toasted dark malts, a hint of chocolate, marzipan, a touch of dark pitted fruits and some floral hops. Taste is full bodied, multi dark grain malts, a hint of plums and chocolate. Finish is quite smooth, with a plum and chocolate malt aftertaste.

[Bottle] This is a really solid beer from a brewery I had never even heard of before last week. Aroma is fairly complex and enjoyable, with nuttiness (almond?) most prominent, along with a lot of sweetness--toffee and notes of plum. Taste is similar, but more fruitiness, particularly up front. The finish transitions to more barley and subtle chocolate. Fairly thick mouthfeel and smooth. Finish length is above average. Overall, this is a very nice beer, and I look forward to trying more from this brewery.
