Equinox Borealis Winter Ale

We were on a road trip to Fort Collins with some friends yesterday where we started at Choice City Butcher and Deli for breakfast as mentioned in an earlier blog.  Walked downtown in the chilly afternoon to Equinox Brewing from the Cupboard shop.
Equinox has a very nice taproom and was a welcoming from the cold outside.  I started with a taster of the Borealis Winter Ale, a dark, rich beer with a roasted malt aroma that was slightly sweet, lightly spiced with a slight bitter aftertaste.  The Borealis is around 8% alcohol. It was so yummy that I got a pint later.
Another great beer on tap was the Quasar Grand Cru, an light orange color, heavy hop aroma, slightly sweet and with a bitter aftertaste. The Quasar is around 8.3% alcohol.
Both these beers were a good  beer for warming up from the chill.
