COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Benedict of Nursia lived in the late 5th to early 6th centuries. Legend has it while living in solitude, he was befriended by a raven that later saved his life. He is most remembered for writing the Rule of St. Benedict that, among other virtues, teaches humility. Inspired by this Rule we humbly offer St. Benedict’s Winter Ale, a hand-crafted ale using generous amounts of dark roasted malts and the finest noble hops for a robust warming flavor.

Dark amber with light, off white head / Simple caramel syrup nose / Light body with little finish / Flavors of lightly burnt caramel with a little winter spice / Pleasant enough for a non-craft beer.

heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 7, 2007
The body is light orangeish brown with a dense light beige head. The aroma is light shortbread cookies with some caramel. This smells like a dunkel to me. The taste has some light hints of bubblegum and a little bit of roast. Finishes with some definite banana notes. There is a hint of cinnamon hiding in the body. Not a bad effort, especially considering it came from Point.

3.3
JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Light chestnut color with a moderate somewhat dissipating off-white head. Aromas of dark caramel and lightly roasted malt. Some hints of yeast and herbal/grassy hops as well. Light toasted malt with a mix of brown sugar. Certainly more heft than the typical small macro. Mild influences of hops and yeast. A stronger amber with some mild Belgian tendencies.
