3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A clear, dark amber beer topped by a small, off-white head. The aroma has caramel, almost toffee, with some dried fruits and a faint roasted note. The flavor is pretty much the same, caramel, toffee, some dried fruits and a touch of roasted malts. Some faint bitterness. Full body and a soft carbonation level. Caramel and roasted malts in the finish. A pretty boring and un-complex one. 140301

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours dark mahogany red, almost with no foam at all. Aroma is relatively weak, has some acidity, bit of fruits and caramel candy. Taste is bitter and unbalanced. If you look hard you can feel some dark fruits in the body and yes, sweet caramelised sugar is also there and quite strong. Aftertaste is rough and bitter, far from being balanced. I wonder why this one is called winter beer only because it has stronger ABV? I would expect some spices, warmth - that is all missing.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Det här var inte så dumt, aromen avslöjade väldigt lite men smaken var fin och kraftfull med toner av trä, torkad frukt och malt. Kroppen är stabil och balansen är okej.
