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.

Poured into english pint, a red brown with a pff white head. Some co2 but not lasting. Malt is the aroma and taste along with a sweetness and some cereal on the finish. A bit more watery than expected in a winter ale. Not bad,not great.

i got this at a deli, and god knows how it’s been handled. i’d guess poorly, based on the bits of solids in suspension. i’ve had this in better shape, and i’ll definitely re-rate when i can get a fresh bottle or pint. but... sweet malt note, almost creamy nose. deep amber color. solid body. creamy aspect to the flavor, not bitter. some oxidation. there’s some bitterness in the finish. this one is just past its prime, not handled well.

From notes. Pours a dark copper, with a one finger head that fades quickly to a thin ring. Despite just having a thin ring of foam, there’s quite a bit of lacing left on the glass. Smell; very sweet aroma up front, and mildly fruity. There’s not much of a peat or smokey quality in the aroma, but still not bad. Taste; sweet caramel malts, with a little bit of brown sugar are the dominant flavors, as well as a mild earthiness. In the finish there’s a little bit of a spicy hop bite. Mouthfeel/Drinkability; mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a low carbonation, giving this a rather smooth feel to it. Drinkability is good if you can handle your beers on the sweet side. For me, I would only be able to have one at a time due to the sweetness.

Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Brown with offwhite head. Fruity sweet nose of raisins and dark maple syrup. Rich, malty flavor with a hint of sour twang to offset the sweetness and provide an even finish. Very tasty.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2012
Keg at Brooklyn night at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a copper brown that seems to change in the oight, small head. Aroma is yeasty, spicy, malt and coriander. Taste is interesting, a little creamy, with spicy notes, coriander and very nice malt. Long, pleasant creamy-ish finish. Nice winter ale, but there are others I prefer.

mcmisko (354) - New York, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Dark amber color with a small cream head. Smells of caramel malts and faint spices. Taste like sweet roasted malts and a hint of spices and brown sugar. Med carbonation. After taste is a little soapy, but not really unpleasant to me. An easy to drink brew, but I don’t know if I can call it a "Scottish Ale".

Dark amber pour, very light head. Aroma and taste is malty with a slight hop finish. Spice notes throughout and just a bit sweet. Not bad, but better winter brews.

On tap at Cheeseburger in Paradise. Was served Ice cold in a frosty glass and was very refreshing and tasty. Enjoyed it much more than most I have had from Brooklyn Brewery.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a minuscule off white head. Nose is lightly nutty with a sweet malt note. Some spicy notes here as well. Flavor is sweet with woody, earthy overtones Some cinnamon. Texture is medium. Long finish with no distracting aftertastes. Taste is consistent throughout the swallow.. Overall a good beer. I was hoping for a little more spiciness.
