No, not the sort of winter storm that causes power outages and snarls traffic. I'm speaking of the one from Heavy Seas Brewing.
This is one of my favorite Winter Seasonal beers and I look forward to seeing it on the store shelves each year. Admittedly it's probably one of the most often mentioned beers in these Musings.
Heavy Seas Winters Storm pours a translucent copper color with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malt. The slightly sweet malt taste is followed by bitter citrus hops. The flavor has some mild boozy warmth and a lingering bitterness. The 7.5% ABV and hoppiness makes this a nice choice for setting a few bottles, or cases, aside for enjoying later.
It's not a weather-related Winter Storm, but it's certainly provides a reason to stay home.
