COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Working on a winter seasonal, our brewers fell through the Looking Glass and found themselves staring right in the bloodshot eye of a penguin gone bad. Bigger, bolder and with even more attitude than Igloo Ale, the smooth, spiced, high gravity Killer Penguin Strong Ale puts the "hot" in winter warmer. Grains: British Dark Caramel Malt, U.S. 2-Row Barley. Hops: Nugget, Willamette, Cascade and Top-Secret Brewmaster's Spice.

NOTE: This entry is for the spiced versions (made prior to 2005).

Amber like with small disappearing crowning. Sweet, fruity aroma, good solid malt. Plums , alcohol at front , fruity and malty behind . Maybe not best but surely its very interesting brew.

clear dark red, nice fine light brown head, sweet citrus aroma, creamy body, big sweet carmel malt flavor with lots of hop character, low bitterness, good in a me-too imperial ipa kind of way,

thining out with muted hops but the fruity malt is not kicking in yet, a muddy middle age mess

3fourths (8549) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2004
UPDATED: APR 6, 2011 Dark orange and slightly murky. Pours with a decent head, with a strong, wafting nose of straw, cherries, burnt malts, plum, cinnamon, a symphony of various spices, and an undertone resembling most Belgian quadrupels. Citric acidity of grapefruit and orange peel, pineapple, pine and dark fruit from the hops, and a nice pleasent orange bite in the middle, before it settles out into a wood and grapefruit flavored finish. Needs a bit more holding up the hops, though.

Pours a dark brown with a big head that dies quickly. A good nose of spices and alcohol. I smell allspice, cinnnamon, and ginger. Flavor is tame for such a big beer. The spices and the alcohol are hidden well. Not too impressed as it doesn't even warm the stomach and the spices are so in the background that it is hard to distinguish them.
