The Twelve Beers of Christmas- IX

Winterbraun

For Christmas beer number 9 we find ourselves seaside in Eureka, California which is home to the Lost Coast Brewery.  At this time each year the brewing staff conspire to make Winterbraun  This winter offering is a cloudy dark tea color, topped by a low, light head.  Seasonally correct scent with lot of chocolate (mostly milk), and a little citrus.  The flavor is heavily malt based, lots of cocoa, chocolate and caramel, with some nice hints of orange and a cardamom or cinnamon spice note.  Big and full-bodied, with a smooth, (not surprisingly)chocolate, spicy finish.  Who would’ve thought?  A winter warmer from sunny California.
