Holiday Beers to Drink on New Years Instead of Champagne
Appearance: Dark amber brown in colour but gets hazier towards the end of the bottle. Large, white fluffy head.
Smell: Mild smell with subtle hints of sweetness.
Taste: Slightly sweet with a medium body and nice subtle orange notes. Pour with care as the yeast is easily stirred and can change the flavor from glass to glass in a notable way. It’s very carbonated which helps lighten the overall feel of the beer.
Appearance: Pours a dark amber with a white head.
Smell: Big, boozy bourbon and oak aromas with soft caramel
Taste: Complex malt flavors framed in oak, with hints of dark chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, coconut and just a touch of dark cherry. This sipping beer has a long, boozy finish.
Appearance: Dark with a full, ivory-colored head.
Smell: Fruity aromas, full of complex flavours like plums, dates and honey.
Taste: A very balanced beer, with a full-bodied taste and a perfect equilibrium between malty, bitter, and sweet. Long bittersweet finish with a hoppy bite.
Appearance: Pours a deep, bright golden colour. Very well carbonated, with a thick and overactive white head.
Smell: Nose is surprisingly sweet, and full of almonds.
Taste: This sparkling beer is dry like a champagne but has a strong, nutty flavour like an ale. Bold finish.
