Our new winter ale. Available from the end of November. Brewed with lots of spices but they won’t be overwhelming in both aroma and flavour.

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2012
On tap at HaandFestival 2012. An unclear, amber beer topped by a light beige head leaving some lacings. Belgo-sweetish on the nose, with caramel, sourish hints and a faint citrusy touch. Not much spicyness going on, neither in the aroma nor in the flavor. It’s sweet, fruity and syrupy in the mouth, with raisins and dates, some alcohol, bitterness and heral notes. Full-bodied, and with a bitter and sweet finish. Tasteful and pleasant, probably a good match with cheese and some chutney or marmalade. 120504

from Erzbierschof - dark hazy brown beer with no head retention; lot of caramel in the nose along with fair spicy notes and hints of alcohol; full-bodied and pretty sweet; low carbonation, residual sugars and a long spicy finish with more notes of caramel - a nice spiced dopelbock

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours ruddy cola with a transient beige head. Aroma is winter spices - but not exactly strong xmas spice. Some dark fruit. Med + body. Flavor is roast caramel with mild spices - some of the usual suspects but also something greenish.

Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours amber with a thin off-white head and a spicy aroma. There is a complex flavor that includes chocolate and various spices with a bitter finish. It’s a good combination.
