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.

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.

jjuf1853 (1302) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Draft at Land O Lakes World of Beer. Pours a nearly clear rich amber color with a small white head. Minimal lacing with a small residual island of head remaining in the middle of the glass. Aroma has has a number of dunkleweizen notes to it with banana and clove present along with some sweet caramel malt. Flavor is more sweet with caramel malt sweetness to it. Decent winter.

Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Mild roasted malt aroma, pours a clear dark amber with a off-white head. Mild malt flavor, with a touch of roast and toffee, very quick finish with just a touch of roast. Thin bodied, very little going on, not bad, just not very good either.

Reddish amber. Small white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma of yeast and spices (nutmeg and clove maybe), perhaps wheat and banana. Light to medium body, less watery than other Point beers Ive had. Very abrupt finish. Flavor matches aroma but with less impact.

Lemke10 (981) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a cloudy red/orange color with a little and quickly dissolving head. There is a slight scent of malts and some spices but nothing that sticks out too much. Taste is rather strong and dull. Starts with a nice spice taste but ends with a dry rustic taste. Texture is a little watery as well. After a few sips you get used to the taste but still has many flaws. Slightly disappointed but this one. I hope the other 5 beers are better than this. Sam Adams Winter Lager is by far a better tasting winter warmer than this.

shrubber85 (11448) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. Light caramel malt aroma. Amber with large tan head. Very light sweet caramel malt and mildly bitter herbal hops flavor. Mild alcohol finish. Okay - I prefer this to the spiced ones though.

Dogbrick (13144) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2012
This beer pours a clear dark copper color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of dark fruit and spices. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt, raisin and spice. The finish is sweet with a caramel malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

2.9
SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear amber with fast fading beige head. Aroma doesn’t have much of an impact, just hints of caramel, faint notes of fruity esters, a touch of bubble gum. Flavor really isn’t much different with a faint spiciness, maybe a light touch of nutmeg??? Light, watery mouthfeel with high carbonation. Overall, while not an overall bad beer, just doesn’t want to try and stand out. Simple but tasty brew.

Very close to my first batch of home brew, which is a good thing. Malty, with some fruity esters. A little sweet, but very pleasant.
