Holiday Beers to Drink on New Years Instead of Champagne

 

1. Unibroue La Fin du Monde

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.

 

 

 

 

2. Firestone Walker Brewing Company Sucaba

Appearance: Pours a dark amber with a white head.

Smell: Big, boozy bourbon and oak aromas with soft caramel
chocolate undertones.

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.

 

 

 

 

3. Brasserie St. Bernard St. Bernardus Abt 12
