Our winter ale is made from a blend of pale and crystal malts, roasted barley and Belgian aromatic malts. Cooler fermentation and a longer aging time adds further complexity to this Old Ale style.

JohnnyJ (5078) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 10, 2015
On draft at the brewery. Dark amber pour, with an off white head. Bready, caramel, herbal spiciness, and fairly sweet. Uninteresting and not that good.

mcberko (10569) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
On tap at Port Townsend, pours an opaque dark amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out light Christmas spices and bready caramel malts. Flavour is very earthy and spicy, with notes of feet. This isn’t very pleasant to me. Too much feet in this.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle from CoOp Bellingham
Cloudy dark amber color with small creamy head. Aroma of caramel, a bit cheesy. Sweetish and smooth mouthfeel, strong caramel flavor with a nutty accent, light Parmigiano Reggiano impression, some roasted nuts in the final. Strong bitterness.
Old tasting (it’s about 1 years old), and not impressive anyway.

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Bomber. Pours a coppery amber color with a small amount of sudsy off-white head. In the nose, there’s hints of brown sugar, raisins, figs and cinnamon bread. The flavor starts out with lots of caramel, toffee, butterscotch and dried apricot notes supported by a toasted malt backbone. Just a tiny bit of a sweet citrus hops presence in the background. The body is adequately carbonated with a dry, sugary finish. In the end, it’s a little too sweet and one-dimensional.
