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.

2007 edition thanks to crushinator. Te aroma is consistent with the Scottish style, malty and peaty. It drinks very smooth, even creamy above average mouthfeel. There is lots of lace. It is very drinkable for the style, which is a swallow ata time.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 18, 2009
300 mL. Pours a clear dark amber with almost no head and no lacing. No carbonation. Aroma is of a Scotch ale- Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, caramel malt. Taste is watery and dry with some wood notes, faint caramel, slight dry hops. Finish is seltzer water. Disappointing.

Bottle sample at "Beers 2012" exhibition in Tel Aviv. Clear dark amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, some fruitiness and a bit of alcohol spiciness. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, honey and a drier finish. Medium-bodied.

rosenbergh (9150) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2014
12 oz bottle. 6.1%. From saveur-biere.com.
Dark reddish brown colour with small off-white head. Sweet malt, some spices, sugary sweetness and mild hops in the aroma. The flavour is malt, nuts, woody dryness, mild spices and mild hops. A bit watery.

leaparsons (9101) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown and red with a thin head. Aromas are weetabix and citrus with floral notes. Chocolate with some herbal notes. Flavours are sweet chocolate and weetabix malts with citrus and raisins. Quite plummy and fruity on the finish. A decent winter brew.

DrSilverworm (9098) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2011
12oz bottle. Very dark but mostly clear amber-ruby color. Light tan head. Decent loose lace. Slight alcohol taste, a kind of watered-down dark fruit aroma, at least compared to the AVBC Winter Solstice I just had before this. Stronger but crisp carbonation. Taste is spicy sour bitter, some sweet with the caramel and dark fruits. Aroma is dark fruit, some chocolate, some metal, caramel. Not bad, but not great for a winter. I think Brooklyn’s beers are generally more carbonated than I like

jercraigs (9041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2007
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.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2006
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.

Ferris (8940) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle - Caramel and roasted malts with a bit of alcohol burn. Dark clear copper with a brown head. Malty with a bit of burnt orange and spice. OK, but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2007
Draft from DRE. Medium brown pour with aroma of caramelly malt, some brown sugar, nutmeg, hops. Tastes caramel malty coupled with slight brown sugar and X-mas spicy notes, and a twinge of finishing hops.
