COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vinter Ale er en varmende, mørk og kompleks ale brygget uden smålig hensyntagen til letdrikkelighed, ædruelighed eller anden utidighed. I glasset præsenterer den sig dunkel og saftig med heftig aroma af mørk malt, rugbrød og citral humle. Eftersmagen er lang og bitter og alkoholen livsageligt varmende. Nyd den temperet omkring 10 grader af et stort glas og giv den tid til at varme dit bundfrosne indre. Indtaget i større doser har denne øl dokumenteret effekt på vinterdepression, lommesmerter og anden dårligdom. Ingredienser: Vand, malt (ristet byg, belgisk og britisk karamelmalt, chokolademalt, pale ale malt), gær, alm. hvidt sukker, kandis, kaffe, laktose (mælkesukker), humle (Northern Brewer, Cascade, Centennial, Galena, Chinook).

Big brownish head. Clear deep brown barely translucent body. Light, delicate spicy candy aroma with chocolatey lacquer notes. Dry-sweet spicy chocolatey taste with sugary toffee notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish toffee and spice aftertaste with wooden lacquer and vanilla fudge notes. Nice, drinkable, harmonic, balanced. Quite subtle, yet full of flavour. Interesting. (0.5l bottle, from wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

patricks110 (1623) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2013
The body has a bright dark amber colour with a stream of dense carbonation towards a small, tightly held beige head. An aroma of ripe, dried fruits such as raisins and prunes with notes of coffee grounds and cocoa. Sweet, mild malts in the mid palate with notes of toffee, molasses and caramel. A subtle hint of licorice in the profile is almost missing with a moderate bitterness on the finish and a warm booze presence.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 Fra fat på DSJT Cardinal nov-13: i sandhed en varmende, mørk og komleks ale der ikke higer efter edruelighed eller anden utidighed! En fremragende medicin mod vinterdepression - får man den mon tro på blå recept? Jeg tager gerne en påfyld.
