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 (2237) - 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.

Bottle shared with Parksy and Malfair. Orange Amber with an off white head. Bready caramel, marmalade, moderate bitterness. I liked this more than expected.

fiulijn (18103) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2016
Draught at the Pumphouse, Richmond, BC; sleeve (14oz?)
Hazy Amber color, creamy head. Full bodied beer, moderately sweet, with good malt and caramel flavor, strong bitterness;/some hop resins. But also a strong buttery aroma and flavor. Toffee and fudge.
Something is wrong with this one, although it a not too bad.

JorisPPattyn (9146) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2016
Small yellow head, irregular, over hazy darker red-amber beer. Fruity & vegetable nose; "forgotten" vegetables, and the fruit is starting to rot.... Banana(peel), caramel, fusels. Bitter-sweet. Finish is nearly wry, but main taste sweet-fruit, as fruitmash with quinine. Retronasal amandine/rosewater; Very slick to viscous, hopoils, tartness backthroat. Some alcohol present. The nose just isn’t right. Drinking is easier.

mcberko (12456) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2016
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma bursts with many different elements, including dark fruits, resinous hops, caramel malts and candied sugar. Flavour is very sugary sweet, with lots of resinous hops, caramel malts and lots of residual candied sugar. Despite the intense sweetness, I quite like it. Rather cloying, but it’s complex enough to be enjoyable in small amounts. Very good.

commonshawn (989) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Tap at brewery. Pint glass. Mahogany with small white head. Subtle aroma. Malty, a bit sweet grain, then alcohol hop. Not very crisp. More like an old ale than an american strong.

Idiosynkrasie (5951) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2016
650ml bottle. Cloudy, dark amber colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Fruity hoppy and mildly spicy aroma, notes of orange are fully integrated in a caramel malty body, an additional lemon dash, hints of cinnamon, chewing gum. Taste is caramel malty with notes of cinnamon, a nuttily touch, mixed with orange fruitiness and hints of lemon juice, notes of Wrigley’s Big Red and Juicy Fruit. Lasting, minimally biting, peppery spicy and bitter hoppy finish, slightly chewy mouthfeel, minimally viscous palate.

American Strong Ale / Winter Ale. It’s creamy, which is a nice way to balance out the hops.
