worldbeertaste (1599) - AUSTRIA - OCT 18, 2013
I’m not sure why this is rated as so low. I think it’s fantastic. It expires 12/2014 so it could be two years old. Will have to check on that. Deep mahogany orangey brown with a frothy lacy, off-white head that settles to a thin ring. Smells of a sweet liquorice, and heavy malt, caramel and sugar with soft roast, soft spice and raisin. Medium to full smooth oily palate. Natural sweetness or raisin and liquorish and malt and finishes with a soft bitter slightly roast dry finish with just a hint of sourness. Excellent balance and warms my tummy. No taste of alcohol.

Bottle 33 cl, BBE 12/2014. Pours hazy brown in color with a minimal head. Malty notes, bready dough and syrup in aroma. Slightly vinous even. Sweetish taste, some malty notes and light boozy rum notes. Aftertaste is similar, too boozy.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 6, 2013
Süßer Antrunk, dunkel malzig, dafür aber zu stark karbonisiert, wenig röstig, zu hefig für eine Vollmundigkeit. Zwischenzeitlich laff, die Malzigkeit bricht ein und kommt erst spät wieder auf ein passendes Niveau. Kann mich nicht begeistern. 7/8/9/8/9/9

mikedR (1076) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Quad bordering on barley wine, and really it's more the latter. Syrupy, strong sugar caramel/toffee notes. Quite boozy, and yet only 9%. B- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mjs (4438) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 26, 2013
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE wasn’t marked, at Pikkulintu, 20130526) The beer poured deep mahogany coloured and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had malts, sweetness and metallicness. Palate was full bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, sweetness, caramell, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, malty and bitter. Way oversweet beer. No off-flavours but aging would cut the sweetness.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle:   Deep caramel swamp water like color, moderate sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Faint molasses and dark pitted fruit nose.   Somewhat of a medicinal light cough syrup and dark pitted fruit start.   Feels somewhat thin, flavorful, but lacks body.   Somewhat of a bright hoppy backside, with medicinal like alcohol notes.   Lingering over-ripened raisins.   Nothing special about this Winter Ale.   Seems to lack umph for its ABV.
