COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is a malty, sweet, biscuit tasting beer that is delicious and goes well with hearty wintertime foods (i.e. beef stew, soups, etc.). There is nothing really outstanding about this beer, however it tastes good and makes a good session beer.

12 oz, bb Apr-08. Copper-brown with a large head that lasts well. Nice toffee-caramel and slight peat aroma. The flavor is a nice reversal: the dry, spicy-earth flavors tame the sweet caramel notes well, and a hint of alcohol is thrown in. Medium body is smooth, slightly watery, has a kind of nasal tingle and a nice dry finish.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 17, 2007
The pour was a clear dark amber with a tight, white head. Some lacing. The aroma was malt, caramel and cinnamon. Possibly some thin nutmeg. The flavor followed suit, with the spicy caramel malt leading the way. The body was on the thin side and the finish was just OK. Another ho hum winter warmer.

the beer is not what one would expect given the noteriety of the brand. surprised that i again found fault with the 2007 brew as well. guess no one is perfect. may i suggest purchasing a single to find out for yourself?

I’m coming out on the low side of the ratings for Brooklyn Winter. Bready biscuit, & roasted malts , alcohol sweetness, spice round out this crimson scotch ale. My palate wasn’t "wow’d" by Brooklyn Winter Ale.

Disappointment. Carmel malt aroma. Dark brown amber color. Nice crisp, carbinated finish. Also slight hops in the finish.

CelticBrew (750) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Pours a clear bubbly copper-amber with an average size lasting off-white head. Aroma of slightly toasted caramel malt, grain, light hops, a hint of maple syrup and spices -- not bad. Malt is certainly the focus of this brew. As the beer warms a pleasant fruitiness comes to the surface. Some malty notes on the inital flavor but finished with a hoppy but. Some spice to it. good but nothing special.

Pours a four-finger light brown head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Nice crystal clear amber color. Malty nose. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Flavor is malty slight bitterness at finish. This is the ’07 version and it lacks the spices but doesn’t have the smoothness of a scotch ale. Best before Apr 2008, 12oz bottle $1.50 from Capitol Convenience Concord, NH.

Bottle. Brown body with small tan head and a little bit of lacing. Modest malty aroma with light caramel malt and a tangy malt note. Flavour is similarly malty with a distinct biscuity malt that I associate with the Marris Otter malt. Very light caramel notes, light bitterness in the finish keeps it from becoming cloying. Pleasant but straightforward brew. Bit light to be called a scotch ale in my opinion. Courtesy of HogTownHarry.
