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.
