COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There is a long-standing tradition of brewers making special beers for winter, both as a little holiday present to their customers, and also because a bigger, stronger, darker beer simply tastes great in the dead of winter. This rich, smooth, copper-colored ale is brewed with six malts for a lot of aromatic complexity, with cookie, caramel, raisin and toasted marshmallow notes. New World versions of noble hop flavors bring a certain European elegance, but with a little more brash personality, topped off with the floral-and-citrus that the all-American hop—Cascade—delivers.

This pours a dark brown color with a slight beige head. There is the scent of toasted malts, caramel, and toffee in the mix. The taste is pretty big and bold with lots of good toasted flavors. This is the first Berghoff beer I’ve had since the move from Minhas Brewery to the Steven’s Point Brewery and the change is amazing. This makes for a delicious drink on a cold winter day.

Nearly clear, amber/brown with a thick, off-white head. Malt, caramel aroma. Taste is sweet, bready caramel. Woody. Rather bland and stale.

12 fl oz bottle. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL.
Clear amber colour with an average sized foamy off-white head. Quite mild aroma of malt, mild hops, fudge and nutty dryness. The flavour is also quite mellow. Mild bitterness, some dry hops, caramel sweetness and nutty and woody dryness. Drinkable and rather balanced.
