Boundary Bay Cabin Fever

CIMG1132

Boundary Bay’s winter warmer is dry-hopped with Cascade hops, but other than that, I don’t know what else is used in it. Let’s see how it compares to the rest of the winter warmers out there.

Stats:
Winter Warmer. 7.0% ABV. Beautiful Bellingham, Washington.

A little bit darker than most of your winter warmers. Leaves a nice latte colored head.

Interesting nose. Definitely malty with a lot of caramel and chocolate, but also reminds me of their IPA, with a hoppy, piney scent. I also get some nice spices, and molasses, and a hint of vanilla. A slightly sweet nose.

This is quite thick, but has a nice little carbonation bite. Good mouthfeel, I usually don’t care all that much about it, but I’m impressed with this.

Nice maltyness up front with a ton of caramel and chocolate. Lots of chocolate on the midpalate with a little bit of hop presence and some sweetness. The back end is my main complaint. It’s a little bit off balanced, and just a tiny bit hot, which it probably shouldn’t be at 7%.

Pretty solid brew here, and if you are in the mood for a winter warmer, this is one of the better one’s I’ve had. And if you are one of my readers in Bellingham, go pick up a bottle or just go to the brewery (invite me :). 89 points.
