Winter Gale (Canoe Club)
Ratebeer 3.31 65th percentile
Beer Advocate C+
The taste can be described as big and complicated. It was very malt assertive with toffee, caramel and lightly spiced. That was just the nose. The full mouthfeel gave a big wallop of plum, bourbon, mulled spiced, candied sugar and alcohol burn.
There was a long lingering of dark fruits and alcohol. The hop content was minimal.
Alcohol Content +1 8%
This is one Canoe Club beer I might pick up and store for a year or two.
Ingame Enhancement +1
Ok, I admit this is just being used to bump the score up. It was a pretty good beer.
Cheers to Canoe for brewing a great winter warmer. It was a very sweet, complex and rich brew.
