We brew Brooklyn Winter Ale from heirloom Maris Otter malts to create a beer with roots in blustery Scotland. Brooklyn Winter Ale is richly malty, aromatic, full-bodied and perfect with stews, roasts and holiday dishes.

Scores a touch low. A wee heavy this is not, but it warms up nicely to be a malty toffee and fruit forward Scottish ale. Very light smoke and hops. Finished sweet. Pleasant, if not too complex.

onceblind (4623) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Clear deep chestnut amber with a head that recedes really quickly. Sweet raisin and lightly cherry accented toffee nose of winter ale malt. Smooth and sweet nutty flavor with some nice dates and cherries with a doughy brown malt and belgian candy sugar. Nuanced and flavorful but needed more body.

HourGlass13 (131) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is malt, a touch of skor candy. Flavor has that same candy like molasses, a touch of dates, and some toffee notes. Moderately thick, smooth, easy drinker. Enjoyable brew this year.

rjmc64 (20) - Deer Park, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Light brown pour, nice off white head. Caramel, malty nose. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet malty flavors... too sweet maybe? Not much depth in the flavors.

SG111 (191) - - DEC 17, 2014
On tap in Brooklyn. Clear golden color small head sort of soapy looking head. Aroma is lit bit of wet cardboard hops (pale lager like), caramel, honey. Flavor is caramel, sweet, little bit of cinnamon? (super light if at all). Not bad. Very light, malt forward, drinkable. Nice winter beer.

Very malty with sweet fruity and biscuit notes. Not a lot of flavour coming through from the hops. Yes it’s an ale for winter nights.

Aroma is raisin, spice, fruits and ale. Not much bite to this, not too much flavor either. A bit caramely on the palate. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
