Coaster Critique: Sebago Brewing Slick Nick

On the second day of Beermas…….

Name: Slick Nick Winter Ale

Brewed by: Sebago Brewing Company, Portland, Maine

ABV: 6%

Slick Nick pours a deep amber color; pour produced a short off white head that fell to a ring around the glass.

Smells of dark malts, there is a caramel sweetness and some bready notes as well. There is a subtle earthy aroma that I associate with hops.

Taste is sweet up front, caramel and toffee notes followed by a dark bread flavor, reminds me of brown bread and some black pepper spice. The beer finishes with a bittersweet flavor.

Overall a really sold winter offering, I like that fact that this one hasn’t been spiced up like a lot of winter warmers tend to be. If you are looking for a straight forward beer that’s malty and flavorful this one’s for you.
