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.

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.

fonefan (44144) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2012

Bottle 330ml.

Clear medium to dark orange amber colour with a small small, fizzy, virtually no lacing, fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, sweet malt, moderate to heavy spicy, cinnamon, star anis, laurel. Flavour is moderate to hevy sweet and light bitter with a long duration, caramel, sugary sweet. De Molen claim that apices will not be overwhelming - grrr.... not sure i agree with them this time ;-) Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20120330]
