Brooklyn Winter Ale
This offering from local behemoth Brooklyn Brewery is categorized as a Scottish Ale, a style known for it's almost singular focus on maltiness. It's darker in color than the Blue Point—in plain sight bordering on brown, with hints of deep red showing up in light—and the creamy, off-white head is a bit more substantial. There's no spice evident in Brooklyn's version, just an abundance of sweet malts that suggest brown sugar, plus some roasted malts and the slightest touch of chocolate. At a more than reasonable 6%, it's a perfect beer to have on hand for holiday gatherings: moderately sessionable and delicious yet unlikely to offend.
