It’s the time of season when Fall beers are finishing their runs and this article will start our first brewery run with Aviator Brewery.
Aviator has produced a wonderful fall beer, aptly named Frostnipper. With an ABV of 7.2 and a grim specter on the can, you should be wary, but not afraid.
On first pour, you can see a nice dark brown body that, held up to the light, has a slight red tint. The light tan head was brief, but with a tight bubble.
With a lightly sweet spiced coffee and chocolate nose, this beer was an absolute joy to drink. Sweet and mildly spiced chocolate, this beer finishes cleanly, leaving a slight coffee or dark chocolate bitterness on the back note. This goes down very smooth, with a creaminess that makes it very easy to drink.
Recipe idea: Use this in stews of beef, venison or lamb; gravies; or even in cupcake recipes. Very delicious!by
