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!

Sweet flavour of caramel, roasted malt, dark chocolate, nuts, grass and light spice with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A good altbier.
