COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Winternacht (winter night) captures the rich, roasty flavor enjoyed on the coldest nights. In the authentic German Altbier tradition, Winternacht is top-fermented to impart the character of an ale and cold-conditioned for the smoothness of a lager. Sipping Winternacht's hearty combination of specialty malts balanced with a slightly aggressive hop presence is a welcom warming from winter's icy chill.

By far, the choice for a cold winter night. At 7% Alc, it not only relaxes, but lends a great charecter to the season: Picture a cabin on a frozen lake, with a big bay window, and maybe a stove heater irradiating warmth that only really gets one side of your face - this is the beer you will be holding at that moment!

This is a very tasty brew. There is a lack of head, but the rich, dark color makes it very attractive. It is nice and smooth. Perfect for a cozy winter night.

Hearty, warming big beer. Deep roasted malt aroma and flavor, light spices lend to a little dryness in the finish. Top rate brew.

Medium brown color, small head, Malty aroma. Medium bodied alt. Slightly sweet malty flavor. Nice hop bite. Well balanced. Very tasty. A great winter beer. 7% alcohol not noticeable in the taste, but it warms you up quick. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Try this one, not only is it an excellent beer, but it’s an excellent example of style.

49degrees (49) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2003
A truly enjoyable beer that offers the perfect blend of hops and malt with enough alcohol to kick it up a notch that makes for an excellent warming beer for all of those cold and wet winter nights. Pours a rich dark brown with plenty of head room and reasonable glass lacing. Has a very sweet, almost spicey tendency in its aroma but presents itself with a very smooth aftertaste complete with hints of caramel and chocolate. An excelent choice for the winter blues.
