Beverly, The Nook’s manager, poured me up one of Straight to Ale’s Orbiter. The style is a Strong Ale. With 13.9% ABV, you would expect the heat from the alcohol, but the malt back bone hides the alcohol completely.
The beer poured smoothly without a head. It had a bit of sweetness throughout the taste. It had similar characteristics of a porter, but with a lot of depth. The flavor did not linger around. It would be a great after dinner beer.
This is of one Straight to Ale’s best beers. It was great to get to try it tonight.
