This strong ale stands a head above the others. Why? The complex malts are balanced by a powerful hoppiness that gives it an extra punch and you a good reason to stay up late on a cold winter night. Graced by a spicy kick rather than an overly sweet froth or a bitter twinge, this is the only beer you'd need if you ever found yourself alone on a snowy desert island - if that makes any sense. - Jonathan Shikes

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
