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!

Deep nutty Amber with a wee white cap. Lovely dark bready and lagerish caramalt nose. Amazing flavor with nutty caramel, biscuit, lagery toast, smooth amber ale tones...really damn good. Like OB Viva Lyons but a bit nuttier and slightly stronger and fuller.

Bottle from Hall’s. Pours a deep ruby red with a thin off white head. The aromas are cinnamon, nutmeg. The mouthfeel is slightly syrupy and spicy with a medium to heavy body and medium carbonation. Really liked this one. Cheers!

Sarlacc83 (1595) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle from Trader Joe?s.A: Dark mahogany nearing black. Thin, white and cream color head with some good lacing. N: Toast, raisin, and cracker. Some hefty peppercorn, earth, and pine from the hopping. Some baker?s chocolate and bark dust underneath. Marshmallow, almond,and hazelnut show as this warms.T: Quite bitter with a modicum of sweetness to be found. This is heavily bitter at first; a bit sweeter as it warms. M: Medium body, creamy carbonation, a bit of alcohol burn.O: Drinking this cold is a mistake as its complexities don?t properly shine through. A better beer than I originally credited it for.

this is by no means a style i usually jump at, but my metalhead side made me buy it. nose is sweet malt, maybe some brown sugar. it is a nice mahogany hue with thin tan head. flavour is basically what i expected from the nose and from a "double Alt" again not my style but a good beer.

Clear dark, with orange highlights. Nice fine lacing pattern. Nose is candied oranges, with malty notes, especially as it warms. The palate is quite nice. High small carbonation, soft. The taste has the oranges, and some other darker fruit, including figs, and a bit of spiciness. Finishes clean and dry , taking away the sweetness successfully. Really liked this, thanks for the tasting Andy.
