Turning up the warmth on our winter seasonal, this Imperial Dark Doüble Alt Ale is brewed with the same recipe we use for Sleigh’r but with an elevated alcohol percentage. Deemed the “Bad Santa” by our brewing crew, Imperial Sleigh’r has a deep toasted malt flavor that finishes dry from the use of an Alt yeast strain.
Gold in color and bittered with the bark of Frankincense, we have even used the smallest amount of Myrrh which is an herb that has roots in ancient winemaking as well. A massive golden ale fit for a king (or Queen)!
This rich dark gingerbread stout entices with the aromas of the holidays. The flavor of gingerbread comes alive, beginning with the smooth sweetness and heartiness of dark roasted malts and a touch of wheat. But it’s the intensity and spices of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, & ginger that add a wicked kick for a jolly playful brew full of merry mischief.
