Double Bockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

It’s Day 14 and behind the door we have…

Hibernation Ale from Great Divide Brewing Company an 8.7% English style old ale.

Hibernation ale pours a clear mahogany colour with some tan head and good lacing. There is a big malty nose that is sweet and rich. The first sip is viscous and a bit syrupy with tons of caramel malt flavour. As you drink you get a roasted malt quality and the finish has a slight burnt bitterness from the hops. Hibernation ale is medium to full bodied with a strong winter warming quality. Overall, this one just seems winter all the way around; it tastes aged, it is strong and warming, it is sweet and spiced and it makes an excellent sipper.

 

Hibernation Ale gets nine well-deserved candy canes.
