“If only we could take our dogs skiing they could chase off snowplowing tourists, stick their heads out the gondola window, and use the snow as their own artistic canvas. But on those days when your pooch can’t be there, enjoy one of these dark, sweet, malty ales in his honor.”
This beer has a nice amber color, and is my second time going up against these winter warmer ales. Last week’s Hoppin Frog had too much of a spiced kick to it, and oddly enough this one didn’t have much.

I love reading the little tidbits and descriptions on beer bottles, it kind of puts you into the head of those brewing it. What I can’t wrap my head around is why you couldn’t bring your dog with you to the slopes, next you will be telling me they don’t let monkeys on there either. Anyways that’s all just crazy talk….back to the beer.
The scent had a nice hops aroma to it, which is odd because winter warmers tend to be more malt than hops. The flavor was light and that was about it, there really wasn’t much going on but it had a good flavor. It’s a little bit malty with some cinnamon spice and nice hops finish that comes through in the scent. It was a good blend, nothing that I would continue to pick out unless it was on sale.
Overall I give this beer 3 bananas. I’m starting to question if winter warmers are my style of beer, I’m no arctic monkey and I’m already sweet enough. @(^_*)@ Who knows but I’ll persevere with beer till I find a winter warmer that I hold dear. (hehe poetry skills)
