Ninkasi Sleigh'r Dark Doüble Alt Ale
Well, a wet Halloween didn't dampen any Spirits around here - in fact I'm ready for Christmas already as Ninkasi just released their Seasonal ale - the Sleigh'r Dark Doüble Alt Ale. Grabbed a six pack at my local market and have been working my way through them. Nice dark color and a small but stout head, this one has some wonderful malt flavors. Not very much hop bitterness, so the chocolate and toasted almonds flavors predominate. Despite the Christmas theme, this is not one of those flavored beers, just a wonderful Alt (an Ale that is cold fermented).
