Elysian BiFrost Winter Ale

Elysian… a good local brewing company that we have seen one other beer from on this fine blog, their The Immortal IPA.  That review predated our JBB6 Rating System, but if it had been in place it would have received a Middle of the Road for sure.  Fortunately, the Elysian BiFrost Winter Ale I am enjoying right now rates a tad bit better.  At 7.5% ABV, this stuff will warm the cockles and put hair on your chest all at the same time… although I don’t need anymore, I thank you. 

Cloudy-copper in color with a lasting head that sticks to the side of the mug as I drink, this beer has a myriad of different flavors but all of them hard to nail down.  Somewhere between an IPA and an amber, this beer goes down smooth and helps you forget all of the other cares you might have. 

Overall, I would buy this winter ale again and enjoy every drop.

**UPDATE** Posting new picture, below, since they updated their label.  Also posting the tasting notes from this year:

Light and heady.  A lot like an IPA but with more malt to slightly offset.  The ABV helps keep this one a tummy warmer.  Hoppy, smells of faint fruit and spices.

JBB6 Rating: Will Buy Again
