Great Divide: Hibernation Ale Can 8.7% [355ml]
They say "Hibernation Ale is Colorado's original strong ale and is based on the English Old Ale in style. It has been Great Divide's winter seasonal beer each year since 1995. Hibernation's massive flavours are so intense that it requires over three months of aging each year. This lengthy aging process gives Hibernation its revered malty richness, complex hop profile and hearty warming character, which is perfect right out of the bottle or cellared for longer periods of time."
We say "Whether you do or do not decide to go into Hibernation we suggest you buy one cellar two of this beautifully boozy strong ale. Sweet and chewy with golden toffee-like malts, dark fruits, toasted brioche, roasted nuts and milk chocolate. All washed down with the warmth of winter spice, booze and the bite of bitter hops."
