COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With the onset of winter, the brewer’s mind turns to providing warmth. For our winter seasonal, Southern Tier offers Old Man Winter Ale, a rich and complex amalgam of hops and barley that will put the feeling back in your toes and lift your spirits above the snow. Old Man Winter throws a deep and inviting hue with a thickness that clings to the glass and the warmth of an open flame. Because of its high alcohol content, Old Man Winter is a heady brew that encourages sipping and pondering its essential richness. Drink it fresh now, or cellar some bottles to see how this old man becomes wiser with age.

Bottle. Poured an amber color with a creamy, off-white head that left light lacing behind. Nice aroma of pine, grapefruit peel, and a caramel background. The flavor very hoppy with underlining roasted malts. Medium body with a creamy texture. Bitter throughout. Excellent!!

thebaldwizard (1205) - Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2006
Pours a deep, dark brown color with just a slight head. The aroma is mostly roasted malt with some maple syrup and hop scents in the background. The palate is very full. Earthy hop tastes suprised me up front and were followed by a good roasted malt presence. Refreshing and easy to drink, this is one of the best seasonals around.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - DEC 27, 2006
Clear dark ruby, moderate head and average lacing. Aroma is very hoppy with grapefruit but also has caramel and English malts. Medium bodied, quite bitter with some alcohol. Initially I was really impressed by this, by the end of the bottle I didn’t think much of it. I tried to average the scores.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2006
Clear light mahogany pour under a light stone khaki head. Aroma of lemon zest, toffee and light coffee. Tastes like a comination of an IPA and am American Strong Ale with plenty of grapefruity hops, roasted malt, vanilla, caramel and milk chocolate. Sweet and mildly bitter finish with some alcohol presence - especially as the brew warm a bit.
