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.

Not particularly memorable scottish ale. Dominated by the malts and rich in caramel and toffee. Off putting aftertaste.

Draught @ Bubba Gump NYC: This one poured a crystal clear amber color. There was a very small head that didn’t linger long or leave much lacing. Some spiciness and malts, but no real sweetness to the aroma. Decent enough taste. Somewhat dry, malts, spices. Pretty smooth. Not bad.

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.

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.

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.

Light brown pour, nice off white head. Caramel, malty nose. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet malty flavors... too sweet maybe? Not much depth in the flavors.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2015 On tap in Brooklyn. Clear golden color small head sort of soapy looking head. Aroma is lit bit of wet cardboard hops caramel, honey. Flavor is cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, toffee sweetness. Not bad. Very light, malt forward, drinkable. Nice winter beer. Nice bit. Of spice but it’s light.

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.
