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!

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 13, 2011
22oz bottle. Dark brown with a lastig beige head. Lots of chocolate and spicy hop flavor. Some alcohol. Doesn’t have the intense bready malt that I associate with a big alt but I don’t think they were going for that. Really just a big American brown ale. Not bad though.
