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. Benedicts Winter Ale, a hand-crafted ale using generous amounts of dark roasted malts and the finest noble hops for a robust warming flavor.

Not particularly wintery or warming, IMO. Quite sweet. Toffee aroma but sort of disappears on the tongue.

drpimento (3311) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Actually one of Points better efforts. Poured at a good temperature with a large foamy, fizzy, light tan head that soon settled to a large island and ring with a bit of lace. Color is a clear orange red mahoganey with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is immediately bubble gum, then fruit, malt, caramel. Flavor is like nose with sweet on top then bitter and tang. Not a lot going on. Body is a tad thin and carbonation fizzy. Finish is like flavor, fairly long, and lelt me thinking: I know they can do it if they want. The question is, why dont they?

Clear amber color out of the bottle with a thin khaki colored head. Big sweet nose with some puffed wheat and spice notes. Caramel and toffee with puffed wheat, banana, some spice and dark fruit flavors. A little thin in the palate. Not remarkable.
