COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Burnside Permafrost is Burnside Brewing Co.’s first winter elixir. It’s a big strong ale brewed with 7 different malts and copious amounts of Columbia and Amarillo hops pillowed in the middle to give this warming brew a chewy complex malt body and a unique fruity juicy hoppiness throughout. You won’t want to sip this dangerously strong and tasty beer like you should but pound it.

Reid (2080) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 17, 2014
22 oz bottle bought from "Roth’s Sunnyslope Market" in South Salem. $5.49 Pours a hazy darker amber colour with a nice sized cream coloured head. Very appetizing malty aromas (if that’s your thing) coffee,semi-sweet chocolate,figs,raisins come to mind..fruity hops. Taste similar to aroma a bit more sweet though! nice dark chocolate bitter aftertaste. Nice enough mouth feel medium to ow carbonation but its smooth enough over the tongue. Touch of alcohol warmth in the very end. I actually liked this one quite a bit..its a sipper though.

22 oz bottle. Bottled on 12/05/14. Courtesy of olio. Dark amber colour with a small light tan head. Sweet dark hops, herbal notes, sweet malt and some pine needles in the aroma. The flavour is sweet malt, strong hoppy bitterness, herbal notes and pine needles. Strong, heavy and a bit messy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

65 cl bottle @ Timo A. Bottled on 05.12.2014.
Pours clear dark amber color with a small head. Juicy and hoppy aroma with caramel malts and orange, some resin and pine. Sweet caramel malt flavor, maybe some berries, orange juice, nuts and bread, some faint peppery spices also. Bitter and malty palate, dry nutty finish. Decent but a bit disappointing, heavy.

[2/24/15] Draught at Burnside Brewing in Portland. Hazy orange-amber. Aroma of malt, caramelly and a bit candy-ish, and some piney and fruity hops. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, a bit of candy, some fruitiness, and a bitter hops finish with a light alcoholic note. Medium-bodied, a bit oily.

canuck_j (80) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2015
Pours coppery brown with a thin white head and somewhat cloudy body. Has big caramel and toffee notes in the nose with no apparent hops. Tasting notes are big carmelly grapefruit with a hint of chocolate and big sweet finish. Carbonation medium and a full bodied mouthfeel. Overall a nice example of the style with emphasis on the fruity end . Big and somewhat cloying, not a session beer.
