Burnside Permafrost is Burnside Brewing Co.s first winter elixir. Its a big strong ale brewed with 7 different malts and copious amounts of Columbia and Amarillo hops pillowed in the middle to give this warming brew a chewy complex malt body and a unique fruity juicy hoppiness throughout. You wont want to sip this dangerously strong and tasty beer like you should but pound it.

22. Pours a murky dark brown with a loose sudsy tan ring. Light sudsy lace. Big malty iced tea nose, blended with roasty brown bread notes and a little bit of faint citric floral complement. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Toasty dark brown bread mid palate with a little bit of floral counterpoint. Long brown bread iced tea finish.

A nice winter warmer overall. Pours a very nice deep red with a white head. Smells great, Belgian candi sugar. Taste has more candi sugar, but ends a bit sickly sweet. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
Rating #1687 -April 2015 - On tap at Burnside with the CBI crew. Lots of similar flavours on the palate to the barrel variant, lots of roast malt bitterness and very present rum sweetness, hoppy edge. Hops much more present on the nose and on the palate. Edgy, a little sharp, a little rowdy for a winter ale.

DuffMan (10148) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2016
Bottle shared with Parksy and Malfair. Orange Amber with an off white head. Bready caramel, marmalade, moderate bitterness. I liked this more than expected.

fiulijn (20298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2016
Draught at the Pumphouse, Richmond, BC; sleeve (14oz?)
Hazy Amber color, creamy head. Full bodied beer, moderately sweet, with good malt and caramel flavor, strong bitterness;/some hop resins. But also a strong buttery aroma and flavor. Toffee and fudge.
Something is wrong with this one, although it a not too bad.

JorisPPattyn (9916) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2016
Small yellow head, irregular, over hazy darker red-amber beer. Fruity & vegetable nose; "forgotten" vegetables, and the fruit is starting to rot.... Banana(peel), caramel, fusels. Bitter-sweet. Finish is nearly wry, but main taste sweet-fruit, as fruitmash with quinine. Retronasal amandine/rosewater; Very slick to viscous, hopoils, tartness backthroat. Some alcohol present. The nose just isnt right. Drinking is easier.

mcberko (16965) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2016
On tap at St. Augustines, pours a hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma bursts with many different elements, including dark fruits, resinous hops, caramel malts and candied sugar. Flavour is very sugary sweet, with lots of resinous hops, caramel malts and lots of residual candied sugar. Despite the intense sweetness, I quite like it. Rather cloying, but its complex enough to be enjoyable in small amounts. Very good.

commonshawn (1187) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Tap at brewery. Pint glass. Mahogany with small white head. Subtle aroma. Malty, a bit sweet grain, then alcohol hop. Not very crisp. More like an old ale than an american strong.

Idiosynkrasie (7317) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2016
650ml bottle. Cloudy, dark amber colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Fruity hoppy and mildly spicy aroma, notes of orange are fully integrated in a caramel malty body, an additional lemon dash, hints of cinnamon, chewing gum. Taste is caramel malty with notes of cinnamon, a nuttily touch, mixed with orange fruitiness and hints of lemon juice, notes of Wrigleys Big Red and Juicy Fruit. Lasting, minimally biting, peppery spicy and bitter hoppy finish, slightly chewy mouthfeel, minimally viscous palate.
