WinterBraun Ale, Lost Coast Brewery & Cafe, Eureka, CA, 6.50% ABV
The WinterBraun Ale from Lost Coast brewing Company in Eureka, California pours out a chocolate brown in color with good clarity and a two finger, frothy head that has good retention. On the nose aromas of dark bread, roasted grain and a slight sweetness. In the mouth there is a good deal more roasted grain with a touch of caramel sweetness accented by chocolate and a nuttiness. Medium bodied. Nice carbonation. Good lacing. Crispness to the mouthfeel with just a little creaminess. The finish is quite long with good roast flavors and chocolate.
