Deep Thaw Winter Warmer

Yes, we just touted our Midnight Marmot Imperial Stout a couple of days ago, but it's already time for the release of our Deep Thaw Winter Warmer.  Winter Warmer beers used to be released for the Christmas/Chanukah season, but as with everything that someone is selling, someone keeps pushing the envelope and pretty soon someone will be releasing a winter warmer on the Fourth of July.  But for now, we are holding the line to releasing it in time for Thanksgiving.  It will make an appearance in the Tap Room tonight and will be available for delivery to your favorite beer spot early next week.  In anticipation, here is the description with a side of tasting notes.

Deep Thaw Winter Warmer – It will remind you of sitting in front of a fire on a cold, snowing night. It will make you think of Grandma in the kitchen cooking gingersnaps. The middle of winter. Deep Thaw is one of those ales that will warm you from tongue to your toes. Taking your first sniff and sip of Deep Thaw, you’ll be serenaded by the malty undertones of a caramel sweetness quickly balanced by a slight hop bitterness. When it’s all said and done, you’ll find the finish to be clean and silky smooth. Sweet, subtle, and smooth are just a few ways to describe Deep Thaw Winter Warmer.
I.B.U. – 39 / A.B.V. – 8.3% 

Tasting Notes:
Appearance: beautiful chestnut brown with a beige head. 

Aroma: sweet caramel, spicy rye, fresh baked bread, raisin like fruitiness, herbal hops  

Flavor: spicy rye, herbal hops balance sweet caramel and bready malts. Finishing bitterness is slightly resinous. Fruitiness is subtle throughout. 

Mouthfeel: medium full. 

Overall: rich malty flavors and a warming alcoholic strength take center stage. Spicy rye malt and herbal/resinous hops add complexity and balance.
