Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfest, 6 pk 12oz. btls. (Germany)

Brilliant amber color with a fine beaded/laced head. This well known Oktoberfest is characterized by its rich, distinctive toffee-like malt flavors. Full-bodied while crisp and somewhat dry on the finish. Subtle but accenting hop notes allow the malt step forward. Great with classic German sausages.

Hanssens Mead Gueuze, 375ml btl. (Belgium)

Bright, pale gold and turgid. Crisp with the dominate citrus character tamed by semisweet notes of wild honey and sweet grains of malt. Grassy in the finish with lingering sour flavors with tart baked apples and pears.

Harpoon Brewery Winter Warmer, 6 pk 12 oz. btls. (USA)

Deep, brilliant amber color with a thick generous head. The nose is a generous dose of the holidays with scents of fruitcake, brown spices, toffee, and ginger. The palate is far more understated with dry entry and a mid-palate that offers a bit of chewy malt driven ale notes. The finish is fresh and a bit resin-like with pine needles coming to mind and accents of toasted walnuts.

Harviestoun “Ola Dubh” Special Reserve 12, 12oz. btls. (Scotland)

Black as night with little head. Firm dark roasted malt scents abound running toward coffee, roasted nuts, treacle, and fruitcake. The palate confirms the nose adding a soft, sweet whisky note with a faint anise and semi-sour bread note. Exceptionally balanced and complex. Far from a gimmick beer, rather being a noble and tasty effort.

Harviestoun “Ola Dubh” Special Reserve 16, 12oz. btls. (Scotland)

Black as night with a modest tan head of foam. The nose is rich and malty with notes of dried fruits, mocha, a touch of smoke, toasted walnuts, chocolate, and sweet grains. The palate echoes the nose being rich and silky while not being too heavy offering complex, ever changing flavors. A wonderful night cap!

Harviestoun “Ola Dubh” Special Reserve 30, 12oz. btls. (Scotland)

Black as night with a modest tan head of foam. Very rich and malty on the nose with generous aromatic notes of dried fruit, chocolate, and vanilla. The palate confirms the nose adding a distinctive whisky note that is much more pronounced than the 12 and 16, becoming a lovely scotch ale/scotch whisky hybrid.
