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!

Fatehunter (2517) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Into a pint glass. Half finger of tan head on a reddish-brown body. A nice barnyard and grain smell. Taste is a rich sweetness... hardy. Some caramel. Finish has a strong bitterness, mostly grapefruit. Thicker body but just short of syrup. Low carbonation. Delicious and a great take on combining a holiday ale and alt styles.

Draft. Pours a medium, well retained light beige head, with minimal lacing, over a clear dark brown (SRM 25) body......nose is toasted and lightly roasted malts wit light nuttiness, dried fruits including plum, fig raisin, minimal hops......taste is mildly sweet with hints of dried fruits, with fig plum raisin tones, toasted malts, finishing with clean lingering hop bitterness.....mouth feel, medium body, mild alcohol, high carbonation. The alcohol is a bit high for the style, malts are lightly mild, but the finish is clean. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Brandon1989 (619) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2017
Pours a clear dark copper with a nice thick creamy tan head. The aroma is quite sweet. I pick up toffee, caramel, and roasted malts. The flavor is dark roasted malts, brown sugar, and some alcohol but very mild. There is some chocolate I pick up as well and not much hop bitterness or notes. The mouth feel is medium and for 7.2 abv the drink ability is quite high.

gringo332 (631) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Bottle. Clear brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is quite roasty with some dark fruit. Taste is bitter and roasty with some sweet fruit - nicely balanced and tasty for the style.

Darwenus (1066) - Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2017
This beer is OK. It really isn’t anything special, and it’s probably the least of the Ninkasi beers I’ve had so far. It’s just boring. It pours amber/brown with average carbonation and foam. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty. The flavor is also slightly malty, slightly sweet... just slight in general. Meh.

Maverick34 (3165) - New York, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Bottled. Confused as to what this was supposed to be. Brown pour, some malts, or caramel or fruit or something

teamsale (266) - Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle pours a dark brown you can see right through with a two finger puffy beige head and thick sticky lacing. Aroma is rust and wet dirt. Flavor is primarily burnt toast, initially sweet with a strong bitter finish. Neither pleasant nor unpleasant, but is not something I’d buy again.

iguanodon (146) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, pine, alcohol. Taste of sweet caramel, dark malt, candied cherries, a little alcohol in the finish. The label doesn’t say ’Dark Double Alt’ but after seeing the name here I think that is an accurate description. A good winter beer with no spices or crap like that.

Andrus86 (625) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2016
TAP. Amber to Cola colour pour with thin lacing cream head.. Malty nose with dark fruits.. Dark malt body with dark fruits & a hint of banana? Finishes with solid hop bitterness.. Sourced ninkasi

MissAnthropic (63) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 11, 2016
Spicy and rich nose with walnuts and spiced dark fruit. Dry and slightly bitter taste. It’s good, a straight bold flavor without any huge surprises.
