COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Majestic mahogoany body w. a full head and spicy aroma. The flavor was a dull blend of malts w. a mild, but pleasant hop touch. Surprised to see the high alcohol content, was masked well. Overall, standard winter fare.

Bottled. Cloudy reddish amber. Appley nose with some of citric hops. Plenty of warming caramel malt, still the mouthfeel is somewhat hard. Lingering bitter finish. Solid but unspectacular.

Aroma like a wet dog. Slightly sour like an old ale. Hints of DMS. Slightly malty aftertaste.

Amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma was caramel malts and hops. Flavour was quite hoppy and sweet and finishes quite bitter.

B5K. Dark amber colour, slightly hazy. Chewy brown sugary malts in the flavour. Full body. Aroma of toffee, nuts and hints of demerara. Sweet finish with toffeeish notes and a hint of alcohol.

Bottle pours a slightly cloudy dark caramel, large frothy tannish head, attractive lacing, with very light carbonation.   Somewhat of a biscuity aroma, malty, slight alcohol and hop profile on the nose.   It has that definite Olde Ale or English Strong vibe to it.   Malty flavor up front, slightly biscuity, with mellow hop bitterness.   Maybe a bit buttery as well, but very subtle.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with only a slight hop bite and a malty background.   Decent, but nothing out of the ordinary.
