COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Frosty Knuckle Brewing Company is pleased to bring you Frosty Knuckle Special REserve Ale. This is a traditional German style Sticke Alt, and continues the age old tradition of a full-bodied, well hopped beer, overlaid by subtle notes of chocolate and roasted malt, with the smooth, mellow finish of an Oktoberfest. Cheers!

(22 oz. bottle from Bootleggers) Pours dark tea brown, appears mostly clear. Brown highlights. A few fingers of tan head. Aroma of chocolate and a bit of brown sugar. Light-medium mouthfeel with a touch of prickliness. Flavor of chocolate - milk, cocoa and somewhat licoricey-bitter. Also some brown sugar and light caramel thrown in. Mild bitter pinch in finish. Tasty, dunkel-like.
