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.

Scopey (12705) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
On tap at the Meddlesome Moth, Dallas. It pours a deep ruby-brown colour with small foamy beige head. The nose is fairly subtle - red berries, nuts and caramel. The taste is date, raisin, plum, leather, oak, liquorice, nuts, varnish, a little honey and some lemon sherbet with an astringent-bitter finish. The overall taste is quite dry and bit too savoury, making it quite difficult to finish.

jcwattsrugger (12198) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2005
on tap-pours a minimal white head. Color is deep amber. Aroma is grain. Taste is grain, sweet, coffee/chocolate/toasty. An occasional beer for me. Again, this is a Big Beer with that complex, thick taste.

thewolf (12131) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2007
Bottle, from Lyager Vine, Fredericia. A dark red pour with a small off-white film head. Aroma has distant nuts, a good dose of caramel, some sherry and a touch of oak. Quite low carbonation, sort of oily. Flavour is very powerful, with an alcoholic edge to it. There are tones of chocolate, roasted caramel, oak and a good hoppy finish.

bright and clear reddish-brown colour with a little foam; aroma of caramel and hazelnut, notes of fir needles, slightly roasted; sweet and full-bodied, very tasty, late but robust bitterness before a dry caramelish, woody and malty finish - a big very impressive beer; big thanks to fiulijn
