Double Diamond Winter Ale, Dick's Brewing Company, Centralia Washington
Our next offering is from Dick's Brewing Company - The Double Diamond.... Let's hit the slopes...
It pours a deep deep amber with a thin head.
It smells of sweet malt.
The taste is sweet with a slight hop. The bitterness is light. It has a medium body, though it does carry a little strength with it.
The aftertaste is of very slight malt. The palate resets quickly.
For me, it falls into the category of 1-dimensional beers. Like I mentioned in a previous post about the Powder Hound - this doesn't necessarily make for a bad beer. There just isn't the complexity there of other beers, so it is dissected rather quickly. It's an alright beer - but for an adventurous season in beers - there is more exciting combinations to try out there....
