Fall has arrived in the Northeast corridor and with the cooling temperatures a desire to imbibe slightly heavier/warming beers. Thankfully, our friends at Grand Teton Brewing Co. are never short on great seasonal beers that are exactly what the body and mind crave.
Their latest release, the “Bone Warmer” Imperial Amber Ale, continues the brewery’s 25th Anniversary celebration of bringing back former beers in their Cellar Reserve Series. The Bone Warmer is brewed in the strong ale tradition making for rich beer with a malty backbone and higher percentage of alcohol…perfect for “warming” one up. While the beer isn’t overly complex it is the type of sud you want to sit down and get comfortable with during the cooler fall and winter months.
Here’s my complete review:
Grand Teton Brewing “Bone Warmer” Imperial Amber Ale (8.2%)
Cloudy leathery brown in color the beer pours with a minimal head. The warming and welcoming nose expresses notes of malt, toffee, and a hint of spice. Rich but not heavy on the palate with roasted malts upfront that are balanced by a developing soothing sweetness and bitterness on the back half. Another refined and sophisticated beer by Grand Teton.
