Hopped and Bothered; Hangar 24 Winter Warmer
Hangar 24 -- Winter Warmer
Alcohol content 7.8%. The pour is somewhat light, with a tint of reddish brown around the dark edges. The head is foamy and thick, but gone in an instant. The smell is quite potent, full of spiced malt and a hint of maple. The taste is crisp and clean, with a pinch of hoppy bitterness in the finish. This is where the maple comes out, and it is almost chewy and clean. Very little actually sweetness but the kiss of it makes it all worth it.
Buy if: you are down with a winter warmer.
Overall: I wish there was more maple and spruce involved, but it was a solid warmer.
