I stumbled upon this beer at Jungle Jimís. Apparently this is the first year that the Brooklyn Winter Ale has been available in Ohio. Very exciting since I havenít heard of this particular brew from one of my favorite micro breweries. -- Brooklyn Winter Ale pours a darker amber color and is quite clear. Visible carbonation is mild and there there is a creamy light brown head/crown that is retained for quite some time and leaves very dense and detailed lacing on the glass. The aroma is rich, malty, and has a caramel nose to it. Initially the aroma reminded me of a very weak Guinness, but as the beer warms up, more caramel and toffee-like aroma comes out. The flavor is very malty (caramel/toffee), moderately sweet, and hints of some darker roasted malt around the fringe. A little alcohol flavor, some weak bitterness, and a hint of some sort of herbal quality come out in the lingering malty finish. This beer feel rich and full and is super smooth and creamy. This is a pretty good Scottish-style Ale. Very good on a cold day like today! -- 12 oz bottle (Best before APR 07) from Jungle Jimís.

Pours an amber with an off-white head. The aroma is thick maltyness, with a spicy aspect, minty and peppery. The body is a bit viscous. Slightly roasted aspect in the malt. Thick creamy body with a light spicyness, peppery alcohol touch, caramel like background and has a balanced hop bitterness.

Bottle. Dark copper or mahogany with deep ruby red edges. Light is able to pass through this, however. Nose is bready, but sweet. Some coffee cake, caramel, sweet malts, light custard, perhaps. This is rather tasty. Slightly toasty bread notes, some caramel, soft spices, sweet malts, cocoa and watery flavored coffee. There a medium feel to this with a fine carbonation tingle to it. Finishes with more cocoa, some chocolate donut, light spices, toasty malts, some caramel and maybe even a touch of grassiness. Nice stuff!

Tap at Waterfront Ale House. Pale amber colour, thin white head. The aroma is lightly chocolatey with some sweet spicy aroma as well. Light noble herbal hop flavour behind the sweet spices. Light toastiness as well. A bit sweet for my tastes, but decent enough.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2006
12oz bottle 06 vintage.. Says this is a Scottish Ale on the bottle. - Pours dark brown with a short tan head that fades back to a film and laces a little from there. Aroma of caramel malts with some herbal qualities. Flavor is quite earthy with notes of caramel, light spice, and some light bready sweet notes throughout. Medium body light carbonation. Pretty drinkable..

hopscotch (9242) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 Bottle... Clear copper ale with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. The nose is malty, beefy and herbal. The flavor is beefy and kinda funky with earthy, peppery notes. Moderately sweet. Medium-bodied and oily with tingly carbonation. Bland, lightly bitter finish. Well, that was a bit of a disappointment.
