Brooklyn Winter Ale and Historical Events
Flavius: This is a great day in history.
Meterman: Right. I'm surprised you know about GM filling for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
F: What? That doesn't surprise me, who wanted to buy a hybrid Hummer anyways? No, today they announced Left 4 Dead 2!
M: I'm sorry but chainsaws and zombies is a little stale and overdone.
F: I like the idea of beating a zombie with a frying pan.
M: I'm sure your wife has lots of tips for your frying pan technique.
Brooklyn Winter Ale
Ratebeer 3.18 62nd percentile
Beer Advocate B+
The nose was a little more malty than I normally like; there is also a very slight clove spiciness. It is a full bodied beer which has a heavy presence of creamy, caramel malt. Overall it's a smooth sweetish brew with hints of bourbon and vanilla. The hops are understated and only give a slight earthy bitterness.
There is a smooth fading of the sweetness.
Alcohol Content +1 6.1%
It was an above average beer. I think this one was picked up on sale at the Fairfield BCLS for about $13 for a 6pack.
Ingame Enhancement +1
Left 4 Dead 2 coming in November. Who says zombies don't make a great Christmas gift?
The would be the prefect brew for someone who likes their beers on the sweet side.
