COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seasonal Release Series. Dark Double Alt - A delicious Northwest seasonal brewed with Winter in mind. A dark double alt, malty, nourishing and delicious, it’s sure to keep the cold weather at bay. Let Sleigh’r rock your winter!

An alt ferments with ale yeast at colder lagering temperatures. This effect gives alts a more refined and crisp lager-like flavor than traditional ales. The doüble alt means that it has been “Ninkasified." Regular alts are 5 to 5.5 percent ABV and 40 IBU’s. Sleigh’r has a deep, toasted malt flavor that finishes dry and has 7.2 percent ABV and 50 IBU’s keeping it in a perfect alt balance!

650ml bottle. Pours a clear mahogany with a medium, frothy, short lived, beige head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, bread, nuts and light spice. Sweet flavour of caramel, roasted malt, dark chocolate, nuts, grass and light spice with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A good altbier.

njnut (486) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Poured into lager glass glass bottle brown with just off the white head and lace. Aroma was sweet on the nose and of carmel and roasted malts. A little toast noted. Taste was roasted malt, nuts, very late in the finish the roast gets a bit strong and tends to linger getting slightly metalic. Mouthfeel a bit past thin. Slightly bitter.

UXO (1896) - CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
Appearance: clear amber-brown with one finger of loose light tan head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: roasty malt, caramel, nutty, mild dark fruit, light smoke. (6/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate-strong bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body tending to the thin, moderate carbonation, off-dry bitter finish. (3/5) A bit of a strange beer: the sweetness is relatively low and the bitterness relatively high, but there’s not a lot of depth of flavour to back it up, so it comes across a bit thin. Smells sort of like a “holiday” ale, but the taste and body are more like a lager. Which, I guess, is bang dead nuts-on for the style, since alts are supposed to be brewed with ale yeast at lagering temperatures, giving a lager-ish flavour - but despite the relatively high bitterness, I can’t say I’m a big fan. Letting it warm didn’t seem to improve it a whole lot. At best, a not uninteresting alternative to the same old - but I won’t be stampeding out to buy it again. (12/20)
