An Imperial Brown Ale that is a more ‘full-bodied’ version of the Working Woman. Fresh citrusy hop aromatics give way to chocolate and caramel notes on the palate. The big hop revisits on the finish in both flavor and bitterness, and her alcohol kiss is sure to make you feel warm and fuzzy.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep brown colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is juicy, sweeter citruses up front with a sticky pine resin and a bunch of florals. Rich toffees and caramels behind the hops provide a really nice balance. Touches of toast and a light chocolate that comes out a bit more as this warms. Flavor is similar. Lots of sticky, resiny, juicy citrus pines with a bunch of florals up front. Hops remain in the forefront throughout as a nice toffee and caramel malt comes in to balance. Touches of toast and chocolate at the end as this finishes fairly dry and bitter with lots of citrus pine resins and a nice malt presence. Lengthy aftertaste with just a slight alcohol warmth following a medium-full, sticky body and a soft, creamy, moderate carbonation. Overall, I’m really digging this. Lots of sticky pine resins and a solid, somewhat toasty and sweet malt balance. Great beer.

Tasted on tap at Revilution Brewing. It poured a deep brown with a beige head and streaky lacing. Roasted malt aroma with hints of coco, and a taste that follows suit. Winter Woman is a tasty brew. Speaking of Winter Woman, I miss Ya Mom!

(En fût à la brasserie): Une base chocolatée accueille une salade de fruits et un sol terreux. Les houblons fruités infusent également un coulis de miel. Très bon.

EBF 2015. Je pense Pat que c’est le genre de truc qu’on peut boire à l’EBF et qu’on doit boire. Une bière lourde, puissante, alcool, chocolat et caramel. Un macaron avec ça ? Un blanc, un rouge !

Winter Women à 10%, c’est quoi le style Yan? ASA? Ça fait du sens. Ça sent et ça goûte le caramel, les houblons fruités, le chocolat, c’est assez puissant, aussi terreux et floral avec une finale qui montre plutôt une grosse résine et une bonne chaleur d’alcool. Yan, c’est en plein le genre de truc que tu peux boire au EBF, non?

Draft. @8.5%. This one is basically a double ipa, huge hops that are a bit candied orangey and herbal. Not what I was expecting but good.

On Cask at the 6th Annual Winking Lizard Cask Ale Festival on 3/22/14. Clear reddish brown in color with a thin beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, orange, cherry and pine. Malty flavor with a caramelly sweetness before a pine and strange sesame finish.

BLADT (700) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2014
From tap. Pours a rich, dark brown. A good sized white head. Smell is licorice and cherries. Some sherry notes. Bready. Starts sweet, moves to bitter. Cherry notes throughout. The abv shows. Clings to your cheeks. Call it a brown ale if you want, but this is approaching imperial stout territory. Bitterness fades as it warms.

Cask version at Winking Lizard’s 6th Annual Real Ale Fest (03/22/14): Deep dark brown color with a medium beige head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, chocolate malt and citrus. Medium to full body with flavors of citrusy hops, caramel malt and pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a resiny hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

Draft. Cola dark-brown body with medium beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, but, light herbal. Taste is sweet, caramel, some nut, orange, booze. Sticky medium-full body.

Old raring. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, chocolate. Strong beer, can definitely tell it is 9.5%. Fairly sweet.
