OVERALL RATING:

Sight: Dark cola body with no head.

Smell: Exceptionally malty and chocolately. I think this might be the most chocolately smelling beer I’ve encountered this year,

Flavor: Although the overall flavor is somewhat nondescript, the malts are the most pronounced. It’s a little toasted, a little sweet, but that’s about it.

Feel: Thin body with high carbonation. It has the mouthfeel of seltzer.

Concluding Remark: Weyerbacher usually produces loud, alcoholic beers that challenge both my tolerance and palette. However, it would seem that they were a little tired come the end of the year. Their 2012 Winter Ale is anything but interesting and challenging. It’s a somewhat watery, banal brown ale whose only redeeming quality is that it is quite easy to drink. Meh.
