COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stir Crazy Winter Ale, a 6.5% abv winter warmer clocking in at 22 IBUs. Layers of malty goodness, a dark ruby colored winter warmer ale deliver satisfying notes of chocolate and rich caramel; while pulverized rasins and brown sugar provide a fruity complexity that warms you from within.

An okay beer for winter, sweet, though not a crazy intense flavour I would hope to find from this brewery.

Can. Pours dark brown with a small creamy head that fades to a ring. Aromas are vanilla, chocolate, cocoa, and some light dark fruit and raisins. Tastes sorta like cocoa puffs cereal. Lots of vanilla and cocoa with some light sweet lactose and brown sugar. Solid winter beer.

portableparty (1911) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 23, 2013
12 oz. can. Pours a dark red/brown color that looks black once its in the glass and shows a tight soapy khaki head that fades to a wispy film and soapy collar. Aroma has a mix of English malts and chocolate coffee faint raisin figs and burnt caramel. Taste has a subtle bitterness with tootsie roll coffee English malt and burnt caramel some raisin and fig. Palate is medium with a soft fizzy carbonation and slightly chewy finish. Really enjoyable!

A little late in the season for this beer in most civilized areas of the world, but not in Minnesota. Its fucking cold and its been that way since early December. Fuck. The beer was a bit darker than I expected, dark brown / light black in color with no head. Taste was quite nice. Slightly sweet but with strong dark fruits, caramel and a hint of chocolate malt. I would really like a bourbon barrel aged version of this!
