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!

fiulijn (17990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2013
Dark mahogany color, brown, with medium sized head. Aroma of caramel, with light roasted nuts and wood oven baked bread; very light yeast and basil impression, later. Good body strength; the mouthfeel is lean; it has a very good caramel flavor, with mild residual sugars, and the required toasted nuts; quite bitter; more nutty in the end, with darker caramel too.
Very good.

yngwie (16227) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A finger thick light beige head sits patiently on top of a clear, amber to brown body. The aroma is on the malty side, toffee and some roasted notes. Not much hoppiness going on. Some in the aroma though, bringing balance. Toffee and some roasted hints. Full body with a pleasant carbonation. Lasting lightly roasted finish with a good bitterness. A pleasant beer, well suited for the cold season. 130805

Theydon_Bois (15545) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2014
Keg at the taproom in Eugene, 10/11/14. Chestnut brown with a decent tan swirl and edgeing. Nose is biscuit, nutty, toffee. Taste comprises caramel, toffee, biscuit, earthy notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok alt if a little ramped up US ABV take for the style! Doesn’t match up to the better 4.5/5% alts you get in Dusseldorf, ABV ain’t everything!

Oakes (14671) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Muddy dark brown. No head. Aroma is a little bubblegummy. Sweet and bubblegummy, the malts are maybe a bit of caramel. Touch if chocolate but the overt sweetness of this brew and the phenols are entirely in the wrong direction.

bhensonb (13516) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 27, 2009
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.
