COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available each winter from the first of November until it runs out, Isolation ale is amber in color, malty and strong. We consider it a traditional winter warmer, without the addition of fruits or spices.

Draft from the brewery (GABF weekend) - Malty, fruity, little cocoa, winter spicy really easy drinking brew. Had this also in bottle during the weekend and for the abv it is really bumping a big abvs taste. Definitely a traditional winter warmer.

Doofgoblin (287) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2013
I really wanted to like this more. The aroma is certainly underwhelming with a faint "off" quality that twinges your nose. The taste is better malty but with a certain bitter component; however, I would have liked a little more rich nuttiness to this one. Overall, it finishes clean slightly bitter--certainly would want this to be the only brew I had isolated in a cabin during the winter.

Very floral, malty. Some spicy notes to it. Very smooth. The floral notes made it a little unusual as a winter beer (in my opinion). Was very malt-forward, however, without being syrupy. Bit of subdued yeast and some citrus in the aftertaste.
