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.

Pours cloudy deep amber, pillowy white head. Spice Nutty aroma, wood and mulch. Flavour is nuts, spice. Nice and smooth with mild bitterness. Not bad but won’t set the world on fire.

12 oz bottle: Pours a dark amber with a nice head and good lacing. Aroma is malty with a nice sprucy hop smell in the background. Taste is malty with some spicy hues bringing out the winter flavors. Fizzy on the front and balanced and smooth on the finish.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - FEB 23, 2013
Aroma fruttato e maltato, con un leggero apporto di luppolo si distingue anche una leggera nota di sughero e quando si riscalda mi ha fatto ricordare il gattò di patatè (!!!). Risulta ambrata con pochissima schiuma. Al palato ingresso dolce, di nuovo apporti fruttati equilibrati da una leggera luppolatura che la rendono molto fresca e beverina. In qualche modo riesce anche a scaldarti. Ahimè quando si riscalda inizia ad affacciarsi al palato un leggero pizzicore di amaro chimico. Si fa bere, senza dubbio, ma non fa impazzire.

Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is grain, toasted malts, and caramel. Taste is sweet with toasted malts and caramel with some hoppy flavors mixed in.

On tap at Old Chicago as part of a mini tour. I like that they avoided spices. Still, it was a bit raw.

Tap. Reddish color, good lacing. Little aroma. Malty and warming. Slight bitter to go with a subtle sweetness. Pretty simple but was great for a cold day.

aplusbreaks (330) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2009
Tap at the brewery. Pours a light golden amber with a nice off white head. Aromas of caramel, malt, and a bit of fruitiness. Flavors are sweet malt, fruits, and a decent hop finish. Medium bodied. I used to really like this beer, but either I or the beer have changed.
