This year, on the 20th anniversary of Cold Mountain’s release, another beer will join the ranks for a limited time – Highland Imperial Cold Mountain Winter Ale.
Yes, the longest running seasonal will have some “imperial” company. The extremely popular base beer is Cold Mountain, that features flavors and spices like vanilla and hazelnuts, amplified with a bigger malt bill, resulting in an 8% alcohol by volume edition. (The regular edition of Cold Mountain hovers around 5% ABV.)
The brewery describes Highland Imperial Cold Mountain as being a bit more chocolate-forward, with hints of fruits and nuts.
Bigger and bolder, Imperial Cold Mountain Winter Ale perfectly accompanies holiday gatherings celebrations. This special version of our beloved season commmemorates 20 years of an Asheville favorite. Malty in body, and lightly hopped, the brew is rounded out with intense, tasty hints of spices, nuts, and fruit.
Highland Imperial Cold Mountain Winter Ale will be a 22 ounce bottle and draft offering, starting November 10th.
Style: Imperial Winter Warmer (w/ Spices)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
