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!

Rating #1368 - 09.12.2014 On tap at National on 17th. Clear ruby-mahogany pour foamy tan head, medium retention. Aroma is doughy, hints of pastry, butterscotch, and a mild oaky tinge. Medium carbonation, crisp mouthfeel. Taste is a hint of toffee, caramel with dominant maltiness. Generously hopped for this style and this is not unwelcome in an otherwise crisp and balanced finish.

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.

Sarlacc83 (1540) - 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.
