Flying Dog K9 Winter Ale Review

Name: Flying Dog K9 Winter Ale
Style: Winter Warmer
ABV: 7.4%
IBUs: 30

Time to try out a winter seasonal from Flying Dog with their K9 Winter Ale, a winter warmer that is made with cocoa nibs, vanilla and....cardamon? It's an interesting choice of additions for a winter warmer but it also makes sense at the same time!

Appearance - Hazy dark brown color with no carbonation. The head takes on a tan color with a pretty thin appearance, but the lacing is quite good.

Aroma - Cocoa nibs and vanilla, mixed in with some cardamom and hefty chocolate and toffee malts. I'm also getting some light floral hops in here as well.

Taste - Pretty similar to the nose. You've got cocoa nibs and vanilla upfront, with those cardamom and chocolate/toffee malts in the middle while the back end of the palate is made up

I've always been a fan of Flying Dog's wares and this beer is another example as to why I enjoy their offerings. All the parts of this beer come together very nice in what I consider one of the best winter warmers I've had in a long time. If you're looking for a good winter warmer, you're not making any mistakes by trying out K9.

Flying Dog K9 Winter Ale -  9/10
