This is a dark beer lighter around the edges. The aroma is spicy and strong. The flavor is roasty and sweet.

Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours hazy amber with tan head. The aroma seems like creamed corn, sweet malts and a mild amount of roasted malts. The taste has corn kernel notes, some roasted malts, a bit of floral hops flavor and then moving into floral hop bitterness.

Bomber from John’s Marketplace in Portland, OR. Pours very dark brown, and ruby shows in front of strong light. Large foamy tan head. Aroma of dark caramel with florality. Full bodied with foamy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is dark roast malt, with some hop bitter and floral/fruit aspects. Some cola and chocolate. Finishes bitter with sweet, and somewhat chocolate. Quite delightful. A big beer, but in a light way.

Everyone in Portland was raving about this beer... I hadn’t heard of Ninkasi until just this month... a fairly new brewery from Eugene. I was told this was comparable to Jubelale and some people said it was superior. I have to disagree... I think its possible that because Jubel has become such a Portland staple around Xmas that people were suffering from "the new girl in the class" attraction to Sleighr. It isn’t even the same style as Jubel for starters, so it is difficult to compare that way. This is a very sweet double alt, and for my taste, it is too sweet, not enough hops, and it just felt a little flat to me. I’d drink it again if it were being served, but wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it. Disappointed in this offering.

CheersMate (1312) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2009
22 oz. from Full Throttle Bottles. Dark brown color without much head. Looks like a decent beer to me. Rather bready malt aroma. Not a very nuanced or exiciting beer. Subtle sweet caramel notes coming through, but again, a very boring aroma. There are maybe some hints of dark bruits if I try and look for it. Ah, a sort of burnt malt flavor with some hops that are drying my mouth out. Some Subtle sweet caramel notes developing. Just a bland beer without much to offer.

daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 25, 2009
Brown pour. Aroma has caramel, light nutiness, fruit and some floral hops. Flavor is caramel sweet, with some fruity esters and a nice soft hop finish. Not bad, not amazing.

hopscotch (9517) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Bottle... Murky, singed caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. The grainy, malty nose offers additional notes of earthy and peppery hops. Medium to full-bodied with stinging carbonation. Leans on the sweet, caramely side of balance, but with crisp, moderately bitter hops making a belated appearance. Lengthy, rather bitter finish. Thanks go out to JW77 for sharing this brew!

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2009
courtesy of Jw77 pours amber, white head. Aroma of dark fruits, grains, dark malts. Also got this rancid apple, pear nose. Flavor, wheat, malty, some dark fruits, light roast, yeasty mouthfeel, Not too sure about it, but got some apple, pear flavors that made this beer a little awkward on the palate.Just could not get into that one.
