Garrison Brewing Company Winter Warmer – Winter Warmer at 7% ABV

Garrison Brewing Company Winter Warmer Winter Warmer at 7% ABV ($2.67 at NLC Howley Estates, 341ml, bottle date 10-Nov-2014)

Pours clear deep amber with a short, short-lived light tan head, no lacing. (4/5) Nose is nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel malt, maybe some cloves. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild alcohol. (7/10) Medium to full body, moderate to low carbonation, lingering bitter and spicy finish with a distinct alcohol warming. (4/5)

Decent winter warmer. No off flavours at all, spices are well-balanced and while emphatic, not overwhelming. The ABV is definitely present, as should be the case for a winter warmer. Ticks all the boxes, without being overly memorable. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
