COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Benedict of Nursia lived in the late 5th to early 6th centuries. Legend has it while living in solitude, he was befriended by a raven that later saved his life. He is most remembered for writing the Rule of St. Benedict that, among other virtues, teaches humility. Inspired by this Rule we humbly offer St. Benedictís Winter Ale, a hand-crafted ale using generous amounts of dark roasted malts and the finest noble hops for a robust warming flavor.

Bottle. Aroma has notes of cereal malts, sassafras, tobacco and cough drop. Dark ruby hue with a white small head that left no lace. Flavor is heavy sweet. Palate is medium bodied and soft. Overall another crappy brew from Point.

Malty. Poorly balanced beer. Malt/hops/yeast did not hide the alochol hotness, despite it being moderate alcohol content.

Sticky, heavy spice beer. Decent but a bit flabby and kind of hard to drink.

Iíve had this at least once a winter over the past three or four years and, of the Pointers Iíve tried, this is the least consistent. Sometimes itís awful and other times itís OK. St. Benny struggles to balance the malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness of its ingredients and ends up being thin and half-hearted. The finish is especially confusing

pours a reddish copper colour with a thin head. Aroma is flat malt, honey, plum and toffee. Flavour is not great. Thin body, flavour of fruit and molassess. Some caramel , cheap wine alc tones. I didnít particularly care for this one.

clear copper, very still, not much head (only around edges) no lace. Taste is watered down malt and spiced candied fruit. I have usually been underimpressed with offerings fro, The Point, and this is no different. Hardly worth finishing.

Capa (2209) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Copper amber with a thin head. Sweet fruity aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor has sweet malts, fruity notes, cherry, light toast. Not a favorite.

Shag (2655) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2012
This poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma is nutmeg, caramel, and cherries. Flavor is malty with a strong caramel and nutmeg presence. The finish is sweet with some spices present. Palate is a bit thin. Overall its pretty good.

Aroma is of caramel malt and banana bread. Very malty taste, nutty, and a touch of that banana bread in the aroma. Pretty smooth. Sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
