3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle Whole Foods. Between ruby and garnet; head dissipates into a nearly nonexistent ring. Aroma extremely sweet, syrupy, dark sugar, candy, and a fruit I can’t quite identify. Flavor is overwhelmingly toffee, which is pretty neat and uncommon; nearly no bitterness at all. Medium-thick body, granular lively carbonation, light sticky. I can’t really pick up the spiciness of this one--it’s pretty one-dimensionally toffee sweet--but this is a decent, unique winter beer, and I could see having this drink as a dessert.

Fľaša. Jantárová farba, biela pena. Vôňa sladká, kávová, karamelová, jemne ovocná. Chuť sladká, čokoládová, jemne karamel, trošku červeného ovocia. Telo stredné, nasýtenosť vyššia. Nie zlé pivo, ale ... čosik tomu chýba.

Bottlr. Pours deep copper with small white head which goes away too quickly. Aroma of cherry syrope and candy sugar, with light diacetyl in the background. No spices are present at all. Taste is sweet with butterish and sticky feeling. Taste of artificially flavoured syrope. I have no idea why this one is supposed to have anything to do with winter time? It is way too sweet and buttered to be enjoyable. Surprisingly AV dissapointed me on this one - maybe this batch went wrong/

Cloudy amber appearance. My god this is good one of the better winter beers I have had including anchor and fezziwig. Only thing is the unfiltered tends to bother my stomach. Tasty brew hints of almond vanilla orange cinnamon and cherry.Easy drinking a real treat well done. Wow.

Dark color. Weak carbonation almost no foam. Cinnamon, caramel, ginger, cardamom and a little pepper to taste and aroma. Very unusual. Great.

Taste is sweet, sickly artificial maple syrup. The palate is creamy but there’s nothing saving this for me.

Pour is a nice Amber copper with lacy head. Ok this will be short. This tastes like graham crackers. Smells like and tastes like graham crackers. Sweet sweet graham crackers. And graham crackers. Seriously. Sticky and sweet.

It was good. caramel, toffee dominant. Nice smooth flavors. Flavor falls a little flat towards the end. It’s a good beer. Better than expected.
