Winter Ale - Newport Storm (USA - Rhode Island - Newport)
Winter Ale - Newport Storm (USA - Rhode Island - Newport) 5.9%
Very dark brown, mostly opaque actually. Pleasant bitter coffee and roast tones with a mellow milk chocolate middle; a nicely lingering bitter and coffee smoky aftertaste. The aroma has a chocolatey aspect to go with bitter coffee and roast. A really nice ale and aptly named and fits the brewery name as well: it reminds me of Christmas holidays and sitting, sipping by a fire while a snowstorm rages outside.
