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.

pintbypint (3152) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 18, 2008
12oz brown bottle. Red brown coloured brew with a very creamy beige head. Leaves spotty, streaky lacing in the glass. Nutty and matly aroma with some caramel in the background. Favour has some earthy malt, toffee and some nuttiness. Aftertaste is earthy, with roast/dark malts, dryish and woody. Medium body, softly carbonated. Alcohol not really noticable in this brew. A decent winter warmer.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours mahogany, with a medium off-white head, with decent retention and lacing. Aroma is malty, sweet with brown sugar and caramel, and a little fruity (raisin??). Flavor is similar, tasty brown sugar, caramel, and chocolate. Good malty mix. Good beer.

dmruth (25) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Amber in color with significant carbonation. The nose and flavor is sweet and slightly fruity. The body is light with minimal "feel", but still smooth.

Goodgrief (1920) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Jan. 2007 - Pretty deep brown color, but no head at all or lacing...like none at all. Egads, this beer does NOT smell good...like smelly rotten fruit. Ick...it tastes like rotten fruit, too. Sweet, but putrid. Who voluntarily buys this after having it previously?? Avoid like the plague!

Oakes (14076) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Draught, 2012. Murky amber colour. Sweet with a figgy character. Too sweet and the phenols are too strong. Still not into this one.

Bottle, Brewery Creek, 2008
Gold-tinged amber-brown colour. Itís a really nice colour, actually. Weak head. Toasty, earthy nose with some brown sugar and tobaccoey hop notes. Heavily toasty palate with caramel & cheesy oxidized hop accents. Sweetish finish. Rather boring.

Not too much to this, the malts are not very anything special and the hops are kinda of weak, there is a slight tang at the end that is not overall appealing.

nick76 (4336) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2008
The aroma is toasted malt, toffee, and yeast. The appearance is deep amber-red brown and quite nice with a medium head. The flavor is like the aroma and very doughy. The palate is smooth and good. Overall I like it but itís more like an esb.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Pours a crystal clear, dark reddish amber color. A small, fizzy, cream colored head settles quickly to a wispy film, leaving behind minimal traces of spotty lacing. The aroma is sweet and floral, with a disappointing corny component. There are some dry, woodsy notes, with indiscernible dark fruits and a good deal of spicy floral hops. The flavor matches the nose point for point, and is unfortunately void of any rich chocolate or caramel malts. The medium body and lively mouthfeel are a bit too sharp and astringent. Finishes long and somewhat sour. This isnít what comes to mind when I think of a Scotch Ale. Decent at best.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Bottle sampled before a scotch ale tasting. Pours with just wisps of a head. Aroma is pretty damn buttery along with a boozy, woody thing. Flavor is chocolate and caramel, toffee with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Some liquor soaked orange also.
