Great Divide Hibernation Ale

Great Divide Hibernation Ale

Last night we had a major winter storm come through Massachusetts. The same storm dumped significant snow up and down the eastern seaboard. In my town we got somewhere around 12 inches of snow. Very tough to tell how much exactly because the winds are blowing the snow everywhere. Some parts of MA got 20+ inches. Needless to say, most of the state had the day off from work. I worked from home.

Below are some shots of our parking lot. Pictures don’t do justice to how much snow there is and how blustery it was. Don’t give me any guff about bad pictures…it was too freaking cold out to take pretty pictures of the snow covered trees or any of that crap.

I’m capping the day off with some Great Divide Hibernation Ale. I thought the name of the beer appropriately matched the kind of day I had…never got out of my pajamas!

This little brew is an old ale (by style, not an indication of how long it has been in my fridge).

Pours a deep red color. Delicious looking off-white, almost tan head.

I was expecting a sweet beer, but that’s not the case. Lots of bitterness courtesy of roasted malts. Bites you! Tastes a little nutty, with caramel malt to balance things out.

VERY full flavored offering from Great Divide. Unfortunately it isn’t hitting the spot for me and I’m not digging it.
