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.

Clear copper color. Light tan head disapates quickly. Aroma of fresh cut wood, floral hops. Taste is straight up bitter. Seems really unbalanced. Different, yet I don’t drink many old ales to compare. Not my thing.

Pours copper-amber with a one finger tan head with decent lacing. aroma is of caramel, sweet malts, toffee, light floral hops, light spicy hops, light pine, dark fruits, and light herbal notes. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty, cold weather sipper.

Dark copper. Smells like cardboard. Oxidized, but in a really good way. Caramel abounds. Thx GreatDane1632.

Cool_Bond (2085) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2015
Smell and taste is lightly malty, caramel and a bit fruity. Okay bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. Okay beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
