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 rich and thick. Aroma of roasted malt and a hint of hops and caramel. Has a strong taste of the same, with a hint of warming alcohol. Robust flavor doesnít quite hide vague harsh flavors in the finish. Decent.

A nice winter ale. Not an over kill of spices and such. A good balance between light and heavy.

cthomas2390 (201) - Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Dark mahogany pour. Malty slightly roasty aromas. biscuit malts and a slightly spicy and peppery finish. Mouthfeel a bit thin for my taste, though itís probably not too far off the style.

efrumtheidiot (190) - Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2008
pours a ruby copper with a tannish off-white head. aroma is toasty nuts, a little cocoa, some woodiness and honey. taste is toast, honey, some wood, maltiness and a dab of chocolate. not bad. not too complex, but has a nice overall taste. would fit nicely into a session. mouthfeel is a little chewy, mid-full bodied. not sticky-sweet, but it is a little sweet. finish leaves some sugary cereal taste on the tongue. would try again, though iím not sure why they call it a winter ale, it seems like more of an autumn brew to me.

12 ounce bottle. This ale pours dark amber with a medium tan head, which fell quickly and left little lacing. Nice aroma profile of hazelnut, caramel malt and dry hay. Despite the name, this is a light-bodied, refreshing beer. I expected a heavier, darker variety. But this was a good ale. Palate entry is subdued, with a quick and sharp hop dryness. This beer is all malt and hops, though. I didnít spot much flavor variety in the mid-palate.

Pours dark translucent brown. Almost imperceptible spiced aromas. Tastes of malty bitterness with hints of cinnamon and tarragon. Not a very interesting Ale.

AKThunder (166) - New York, USA - JAN 4, 2013
This is one of the better Winter Aleís I have had. It has a nice presence of spices, and a full body to keep you warm on those cold nights. Dark amber in appearance, retains some head when poured into a Sam Adams pint glass.

Brown, no head poured from bottle. Faintly caramelly, sticky, slightly bready, sweet. Not my favorite Scottish ale.
