Beer Review: Ninkasi Brewing’s Sleigh’r

2013-12-27 18.34.32From the label:

A delicious Northwest seasonal brewed with winter in mind. A dark double alt ale, malty and delicious, it’s sure to keep the winter at bay. And yes, Sleigh’r does rock!

From my notes:

Pours a dark brown, caramel with a thick, very fine bubbled head that leaves lace along the glass walls. Not a lot on the nose some malt, some barley. Toasty on the tongue, chocolate, caramel, and cherry notes finishes with some mild bitterness. Smooth considering the amount of alcohol, very little carbonation.

2013-12-27 18.35.33I don’t know if anything is particularly “metal” about this beer… It’s a good altbier but nothing stood out for me. I wish there was just more to it. Well, except for the ABV… Plenty of that in Sleigh’r!

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
