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.

eaglefan538 (2943) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Poured a deep amber, pretty much copper color, decent initial off-white to tannish head. Aroma is juniper, light peat and scottish malt type aromas. The flavor is astringent, caramel, juniper or light spicing (even though they say it isn’t spiced this year), some peaty touches, and some bread. Mouthfeel is slightly acidic, thin.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle from shigadeyo. Deep clear red body, thick puffy buff head. Aroma of toast and butterscotchy caramels. Thin, tart and sweet toasty, caramely, nutty malts punctuated by butterscotch and light grassy hops. Seems a bit stale and cardboardy. Too thin to carry the acidity.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JAN 4, 2007
12 oz bottle: Yawn. Smell is a faint malty, somewhat hoppy aroma. Color is a very nice looking amber color. Flavor is pretty weak -- very watery, not much going on here. Pretty boring.

zsb19 (168) - Cincinnati, Kentucky, USA - JAN 3, 2007
Bottle (12 oz.) - Pours thick dark amber with foamy off-white head with a good amount of lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and caramel. Palate is a medium to thin, very smooth with a touch of carbonation. Upfront taste is caramel and malt sweetness. Follow through is more of the same with a hint of nuttiness. Aftertaste brings out a nice touch of piney hops. Overall, a very good Scottish Ale. Very sweet and malty throughout and perfect for a cold winter day.

Bottle best by April ’07. Poured a dark amber with a fizzy off-white head. The aroma found malts and nuts. The flavor was of caramel, spices, and al slight toasty. Medium to full body that is sweet throughout.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Bottle thanks to Shigadeyo. Pours a translucent brown with a beige head. Very strong nutty and toasted malt aroma. The flavor is very sweet, with notes of nuts, berries, citrus, and caramel. Slightly thin finish that has a moderate amount of lingering sticky sweetness.
