COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seasonal Release Series. Dark Double Alt - A delicious Northwest seasonal brewed with Winter in mind. A dark double alt, malty, nourishing and delicious, it’s sure to keep the cold weather at bay. Let Sleigh’r rock your winter!

An alt ferments with ale yeast at colder lagering temperatures. This effect gives alts a more refined and crisp lager-like flavor than traditional ales. The doüble alt means that it has been “Ninkasified." Regular alts are 5 to 5.5 percent ABV and 40 IBU’s. Sleigh’r has a deep, toasted malt flavor that finishes dry and has 7.2 percent ABV and 50 IBU’s keeping it in a perfect alt balance!

Dark ruby pour with a light opacity. Medium auburn head that dissipates rapidly. Aroma has the standard nuttyness of the style. Hints of nutmeg, pie, pine, and caramel. The malty goodness really comes out on the tatste. Slight pine, resin, caramel, toast, a hint of dark fruits. VERY easy drinker. The beer finishes rich, but crisp with a lovely bitterness. This was the bottled version, and I wasn’t nearly impressed with it on tap. Ninkasi has had some inconsistency issues in the past so maybe they’re not resolved.

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2010
22 oz bottle from New Seasons - Dark pour with a foamy white head. A hint of chocolate flavor with a bit of sweetness to it. I had this one after dinner and it made for a nice dessert. Very good winter beer. Makes me warm.

muteprint (176) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2010
22 oz. Much darker than expected appearance. Caramel malts all the way with this one. Very well balanced though with just enough hop bitterness. Warming and dark. Very good winter-time beer.

hoptimist (99) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Big bold malt aroma with caramel, dark fruit, hints of cocoa and roast and a touch of resiny hops. Dark ruby brown and clear with a long standing tan head. Again, big malt with the caramel sweetness, slight dark chocolate and roast-like astringency along with a hint of sour dark fruit, balanced with a medium resin hop bitterness. Initial malt sweetness that is quickly followed with an impressive bitter middle and then a fairly dry, slightly astringent and long balanced finish. Medium body, lively carbonation, sticky texture. Another reminder of why my favorite time of the beer...I mean year...has just gotten underway!

dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2011 I really like this brewery. This beer pours brown with a nice tan head that left a minimal amount of lacing in my glass. Nice malty notes with lively carbonation and a dry hops finish. I’d have this beer again. Wish it came in a sixer. UPDATE: Since my review last October...it now comes in a sixer.

darbish (115) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Strong doughy wheat aroma, with a candy sweetness in the back. Flavor is sort of like a mix between a porter and a hefeweisen. There’s a strange flavor in there that tastes like a mix between bubblegum and wheat. Extremely malty and wheaty though, so if you like that kind of stuff you will probably like this.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6621) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Shipped to me by my wife on a trip to Portland. Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with a huge creamy tan head that lingered and produced minimal lacing. The aroma was dryish, malty and a bit toasty with light vanilla, fruit and grassy hops. The flavor was sweetish and malty with notes of nut and vanilla. The finish was medium length and malty. Creamy body. The alcohol was very well hidden. Decent.

Brown with cream head, hop aroma, toffee flavor with some bitter. Kind of boring but nothing wrong with this beer, in fact I will try it again next year. Plus the name is fun.
