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.

Malt aroma with a bit of fruit. Hazy, brown amber body with a medium-lasting foamy light tan head. Toasted malt flavor with roasted yeast. Nice toasty beverage.

A nice amber color, small head. Strong caramel taste and only a small bit of hops. An almost bitter aftertaste.

jjuf1853 (1301) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2008
Bottle pours a transparent amber color with a slightly tan head. Rich aroma includes sweet caramel, lots of malts, and a hint of hops. Mostly sweet malt in the flavor, slightly bitter aftertaste.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Pours a light brown with an off-white head. Aroma and flavor of brown sugar and caramel. Not awful, but not something to go out of your way for. Luckily, it is pretty commonly available so that you donít have to go out of your way for it.

Liquor and caramel pretty much sums up the aroma of the beer. The toffee and toasted malt flavour are not to my liking. I am not a huge fan of beers that are from England, or have English tendancies. I just think that English beers, or English style beers tend to be watered down. I think that I smell cherries. The beer has a hidden fruity aroma. The alcohol you can also smell. I will say even though I donít tend to love English brews this aroma is nice because it keeps me guessing. I am somewhat impressed. There is a nice ring of head around the top, and the beer has a decent carmal brown appearance. The beer is nearly opaque. Average looking beer. This beer has that watered down buttery flavor that I really donít care for. There is more of a malt presence than anything else. The hops donít really show up at all, or make any type of statement. The beer is relatively smooth, and is not bad. I just donít care for the flavor, which is one of the biggest components of the beer.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2008
Pours a crystal-clear amber brown with a minimal trace of foam on the top. Aroma is vegetal, odd - like canned vegetables (cabbage?) Taste is very bready, diacetyl in small amounts, would indeed go well with stews, roasts, and holiday dishes (wish we could get it earlier than mid-February up here in Canada!) Macro-ish, kinda cheap and bland. Body is thin and lightly carbonated. This is drinkable and not entirely unpleasant, but lacking in any real direction (or flavour).

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2008
Objectively speaking: 341mL light mahogany beer of English influence. Heavily filtered, slightly oxidized. Bought in Winooski/Burlington less than a month ago.
I like: No spices. Clean marris otter. Fair dryness on the palate. Not too warming. Fair drinkability. Earthy, honeyed nuances. Cheap price (1.50 a bottle)
I dislike: Loose body - kinda slick and not very lively, very filtered. Rather simple, not very exciting. Frail hop character. A bit swift on the move from sweetness to dryness. Relying completely on the malts, yet their extraction does not bring much complexity.
