3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Just so-so with little to recommend it above anything else. Pretty much a disappointment,

355ml bottle at home. Clear amber with a medium white soapy head. Medium body with low carbonation. Quite sweet with some bitter tones. Malts, dark fruits, caramel and clove. Ok, but somehow not my brew.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful clear ruby beer with a thick white foam layer. The smell is a tiny bit fruity and slightly caramelly. The taste is full and strong without being too heavy and weirdly a tiny bit watery. Caramel and licorice aromas. Good, but rather simple despite its strong characteristics.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beautiful amber-ruby color with big white head. Aroma is toffee, booze, candied fruits, prunes, spicy. Taste is spicy, fruity, full, but something is missing... Finish is pleasant but nothing special. This beer is unusual. Wintery is sorta true.

On tap at Green Turtle in Annapolis. Pours murky brown, smell of ttoffee malts and spices. Flavor includes plenty of spice. Not completely off-putting. Maybe worth trying if you’ve got no other options around (the case at GT).

Bottle from Systembolaget, sweden.
Big and lasting brown head. Clowdy red-brown color. Big pale malty aroma with a tuch of caramell. Caramell malty taste but low sweetness and balanced body with a medium bitterness. The big alcohidden in the beer.ole content is not present and well the beer.
