Winter Storm Ale

Beer review from Beer Advocate:
Pours out a healthy off whit two finger head, that settles to a blanket of foam still the last drop. There is plenty of lacing sticking to the glass. Has a clear rich amber color with copper highlights.

The aroma is roasted malt, soft bread, and ripe fruit.

Big sweet and toasted malt hits the palate at first. In between, there are toasted bread, plum, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a light ripe citrus from the hop.

Full bodied and slick on the tongue. Has a semi-dry finish with a very tasty medicinal hop lingering of the palate.

Over all I have to say this ESB is delicious . Big malty and spicy flavor with no spice added. I love ESB's and this brew is at the top of my list.


The Heavy Seas Mission
To make awesome beer and have fun being a swashbuckling Pyrate-type.

Why? Because Pyrates are cool in a very special way. As I once read, “the average man will bristle if you say his father was dishonest, but he will brag a little if he discovers that his great-grandfather was a pirate.” For me, this captures what Heavy Seas is all about—an attitude of risk-taking, a touch of the playful rogue, a desire to stretch the boundaries, all wrapped in an appealing costume of possible impropriety with a twinkle in the eye. I believe this is an attitude that we can all embrace—indeed, that we need to embrace from time to time. Who hasn’t occasionally allowed his imagination to take the helm of a Pyrate ship and set off into uncharted waters?

We want you to see that in our beers: from the sessionable Clipper Fleet, to the bold Pyrate Fleet, to the rebellious Mutiny Fleet—and especially in our cask ales. The spirit of exploration blended with a mischievous sense of fun, that’s our Mission. Aaargh!

Because as we know, Sailors tell stories… Pyrates make Legends!
