Continuing with the review of the winter ales: Bridgeport’s Ebenezer Ale. Sweet nose, very subtle brown sugar note happening. Again, another beautiful deep red color with some near translucence when I hold it up to the light.
The flavors aren’t too bold: there’s a little cinnamon finish, but there’s also a little bit of a red wine in the mouth with some drying effects. It doesn’t feel heavy or dense, but I get the sensation that there are more flavors that I am just missing: there’s a definite warmth coming from this beer that I’m trying to pinpoint. I almost get a hint of cherry coming from this beer; it’s got some nice flavors going on and I think I like this beer a bit more than Deschutes’ Jubelale.
