Nice red copper color but almost no head. Berry sweet nose with lots of alcohol. There is a subtle balance of sugar sweet malts and hop bitterness. I’m not sure I taste any roasty notes in here, but I found this bottle in the back of my fridge, where I think it has been since January ’02. The 7% warms you up nicely. I’m glad the air conditioning is on. A nice winter treat, even in August, and a good example of the Alt style. austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 25, 2002
A tastier alt than the Long Trail Double Bag because the hops are more balanced by malt here. A good brew for a winter night. Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2002
With a name like Winternacht, I thought it would be darker. Still good, with a very clear coloring, but something’s missing. CAmes (32) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2002
The only decent stuff from Widmer, in my opinion............................ NationWide (12) - Pullman, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2002
A bit more bitter than I generally prefer, but still a very good strong ale.

By far, the choice for a cold winter night. At 7% Alc, it not only relaxes, but lends a great charecter to the season: Picture a cabin on a frozen lake, with a big bay window, and maybe a stove heater irradiating warmth that only really gets one side of your face - this is the beer you will be holding at that moment!

Very good. Probably one of Widmer’s best. I love this stuff because you can get it at any quicky-mart in Portland, no matter how deep in the ghetto. Great beer.
