3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Reddish amber color. Sweet toffeish and caramelly aroma with yellow raisins and perhaps cardamon or coriander. Dryer taste with raisiny caramel, toffee and mild woody spiciness (clove?). Spiciness is very restrained, which is nice but there is too much caramel for my taste.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle traded with Cunningham. Aroma is rather sweet - berries, root spices, caramelly malt and toffee. Very dry taste, The hollow, carmalley malty body (or rather its remains) is dominated by a spicy profile that still is not intense at all. The finish is light to medium bitter and the buttery notes semm a bit out of place. Disappointing - the lack of a stronger maltiness is not compensated by anything.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish brown, almost no head. Varied spicing that contains most familiar wintr ale spices, but perhaps in a lower quantity. Bitterness is also held back, low on carbonation. A nice drink, but easy forgotten.
