Our winter ale has a gorgeous mahogany hue, a hint of hazelnuts, and a finish reminiscent of mocha and toffee. No spices, just a perfect blend of five specialty malts. Cellarable for 3+ years.

Pour from can in recently bought six pack so no additional aging by me. Mahogany with soft white cloud of a head. Smoother than I expected and not boozy, up front molasses, some toffee, vanilla, very clean finish. Need to retry after some aging as I suspect it will improve but this was very good as is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a reddish brown. Thin head. Aroma of caramel malt, sweet fruit, light chocolate, slight roast. Taste is smooth, kinda rich, dry and crisp finish. Sweet caramel, light chocolate and slight roast, pepper, spice. A little citrus. Not a bad English strong ale.

Pours a slightly hazy brown with minimal head that dissipated fairly fast. Aroma is black liquorice toffee and cinnamon dark fruits. Taste follows the aroma with a slight molasses note. Very smooth but a bit of booze coming thru.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Hazy mahogany pour with pretty big tan foamy head almost pillow like. Aroma of toffee and caramel with a sugary scent to it. Flavor of some plum and mostly caramel. Had some nutty character as well. Sweet finish good beer.

BeerViking (4112) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2015
On tap at the brewery on the 2015 launch day, wearing my ugliest sweater... Deep dark brown with a thin lacing head, aromas of toffee and apple (not quite toffee-apple though!). Dry-sweet and lightly toasty. Demerara and hints of umami and cola.

tiong (6392) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2015
355ml bottle. Pours dark reddish brown with a small head. Aroma of caramely malts, toffee, syrup and sugary sweetness. Taste is sweet, malty and syrupy with some toffee. Finish is sweet, heavy and warming with loads of syrup, toffee and caramel. Too sweet and messy.
