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.

"Pours a somewhat cloudy dark amber with a white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is fairly sweet and fruity. taste is of caramel malts and light hops. Somewhat spicy ending and noticeably dry.

StuartC (40) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Light intensity of aromas but with obvious notes of yeast-extract - bovril/marmite, and subtle hints of sweetness - possibly dried-figs or banana-bread. The sweetness is more obvious on the palate though this dries almost instantly from chocolate-toffees to cinnamon and walnuts, and offers a very short finish with only a delicate lingering of fresh wholegrain toast. Flavourful, but is either under-spiced or is a new, elegant take on the seasonal winter ale.

355ml bottle from Good Spirits Company, Glasgow (6.1% abv on the label) - clear amber brown, thin lively cream head, sweet malty aroma, no lacing, sweet malty flavour, fairly high carbonation,

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle @Mother-in-laws, pours dark Amber/brownish red. Not a great deal on the nose other than hint of sweetness and you get a sweetish taste to it straight away. A hint of spices on the finish.

jsquire (3594) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Attractive deep amber color out of the bottle with the smallest of off white heads. Sweet and nutty nose. Caramel sweetness with some light toast, some earthy tones and a hint of fruit.

Hanoi (475) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Nose is malt, hazelnut, earth. Taste is malt, nuts, some cereal a little spice in a very short finish. Mouthfeel is thin, but with a pleasing warmth. Pretty bland stuff, I’d not bother again, it is not a scottish ale, it’s a bitter.

leebotton (260) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Very bready aroma with caramel cereal tones. Deep red with just a few bubbles. Small bubbly mouthfeel with some deeper malty flavours and a citrussy zing. A little dull, although the flavours are good.

Pint at The Tavern in Farmington, CT. Pour is dRk amber with a fading off white head and not much lacing. Smell is caramel some dark fruit and faint hops. Taste us sweet and malty with caramel, plum and spices. Very mildly hopped. True to many winter styles. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
