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!

This Alt style dark ale is a deep dark brown in color, almost the color of Cola and it has a thick tan head. It is a medium bodied beer with a rich toasted barley and light chocolate taste which is thrown off by an odd, almost citrusy finish. In conjuction with the odd finish it is a little higher on the IBU scale than I care for. By itself I wouldn’t pick this one as my drink of choice, but oddly enough when I began to drink it with food, I just happened to be eating Kerry Gold Dubliner Cheese and a Gala Apple, it was much more tolerable. I assume because the sweetness and strong tastes helped to mask the hoppy bitterness of the beer allowing me to enjoy other aspects of the beer a little.
