3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm) Dark brown colour leaning in the mahogany direction, pale brown, frothy head. Malty nose with dark fruit, blackberries and a hint of chocolate. Malty taste with wild berries, dark fruit and some chocolate. Rather sweet with lots of berries. Nice beer, but from a beer with the name Winter Fire, I would expect a little more ... fire.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Pigs Ear Beer Festival, London on 6 December 2006. Deep ruby colour. Lightly malty aroma with some fruity accents. Stronger fruit on the palate - berries dominant. Lots of malt and no discernible hop presence leaves it feeling a bit unbalanced as far as I’m concerned. Mouthfeel is mellow and sweetish but not too sticky, so retains an amiable drinkability.
