Clear copper with a sudsy beige head. Spotty lacing. Aroma of grass, bread, resin, and citrus. Taste is bitter and bready. Medium bodied. Nice. I like the above average hop aspect of this warmer.

12 ounce bottle. In line with the name, this beer is best served thoroughly chilled in order to blunt the flavor of sweetened esters and alcohol. Itís fairly light in body, amber colored, and it has only trace amounts of bubble movement within the glass. It cuts through sobriety like a dull, rusted spoon. In other words it tastes strong and nasty, but itís below average in abv impact for the style. It makes me excited for the end of winter.

Big Sky Powder Hound Winter Ale - Appearance is somewhere in between orange and copper. Head is quite small; lacing is somewhat more impressive. Aroma - heavy caramel malts and sugar; becomes merely bready once the tiny head dies down. Flavor - the caramel malts certainly come through, but thereís also a nice nutty and hoppy ending. Smoother than I was anticipating, but not thin-bodied or watery at all, which is good since this is an English Strong. Not much lingers, unfortunately, and this isnít anywhere near the level of Deschutesí Jubelale, but it fits the style and is drinkable enough.

ACHops (759) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 30, 2012
On tap @ Chuckís 85th. Pours bright copper with thin off-white head. Aroma is dark caramel malts and faint hop notes. Taste is malt forward, lightly roasted, sweet, and substantial. Tastes more wintery than it looks. Finishes with mild hoppy bitterness. Not a standout, and quite lighter bodied than most other winter beers, but pleasantly drinkable.

An average winter ale. If youíre looking for spices, find something more potent than this. Rather than oranges, there is a more tropical fruit flavor. Mild in aroma with some caramelly sweetness.
