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.

Nutty and dark smelling, which is deceptive as its medium to dark caramel Colored with a medium head. Relatively light bodied as well. Palate not as complex as expected given the aroma. Nutty, strong roasted taste.

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 (1045) - 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.
