Blue Point Brewing’s Winter Ale is a hearty and robust amber ale. Brewed to chase away the chill of a cool winter night. Made with Pale, Vienna, crystal and chocolate malt. This uncommon amber is only brewed during the cold months of the year. Winter Ale is an extremely popular seasonal specialty. Enjoy the tasty balance of malt and hops. Remember this special ale leaves with Winter.

Pours a clear dark brown with a foamy off white head. Notes of cocoa and berry with a subtle bready ness. Taste is maple cocoa and bittersweet cherries. Mouthfeel is slick and full. Aftertaste leaves a lingering bitter and tart finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to someone for sharing this at bu11zeye’s 10,000th tasting in April 2012. Amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some caramel and toffee notes. The flavor is similar with caramel, toffee, spice and tea. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours orange/mahogany with a lasting head. Slightly sweet aroma. Smooth, creamy and sweet. This is certainly a winter sipping ale and at 7% should warm up those winter chills. Very well balanced flavor with a rounded finish.

suprchunk (2720) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Amber colored pour. Small off-white head that quickly falls to a few bubbles. No lacing. Malty, vanilla, caramel aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a hint of pine. Not bad. Especially for not being Winter any longer.

chinchill (3343) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Undated 12 oz bottle served in a Trois Pistoles snifter. A: The beer is a deep reddish brown color with some fine looking carbonation bubbles, all covered by a good sized off-white head. The head reduces to a lasting partial coat and ring, and plenty of lacing is left on the glass. S: The aroma features sweet malts, with a good bit of caramel, and traces of hops and light floral and smoke notes. T: The taste is a step towards an imperial amber, with flavors of darker roasted malts than usual, Some coffee and smoke in the finish and aftertaste. M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly dry finish. O: Light in body and ABV for a winter seasonal, with the alcohol very well hidden, it’ is darker and richer than average for an amber ale.

Very drinkable ale....pours dark amber with a decent beige head, that sticks around for a while. Nothing bitter or bold...not sure I would say that it was robust, nor would chase a way a cool winter night....not a bad brew though...
