Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2006
Red copper ale with a thick light moka head. Light sweet caramel malt with light figuy notes. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with light hopping, and sustained metallic harshness, and burned caramel. Light alcohol in finish. Sweet fruity esters in remnant but overpowered by the burned character. Bottle was BB 24/09/05. Bottle bought in England in Feb. 2005.

unibaren (154) - 8000 Ňrhus C, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2006
Nice roasted, caramel aroma. Dark amber colour with off-white head, limited carbonation. Superb nutty flavour with some sourness and a nice hoppy aftertaste. Superb winter warmer.

rw4244 (132) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2006
Bottle, 50cl. Poured to a rich, brown colour with a hint of red. Aromas of Roast nuts, malt and a faint chocolate smell too. This beer has a strong, nutty malty flavour, with light hops and chocolate. The finish is bitter, with those flavours lasting on. A fairly heavy beer, as you would expect from a winter ale. Excellent beer, flavoursome and tasty.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - MAR 30, 2006
Deep reddish body, hoppy and slightly woody aroma. Honey, orange peel, herbs and spices. Robust hops character. Medium to full body, lasting bitter finish. Balanced and full of taste.

Christian (11055) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2006
Copper brown with a medium off-white head with some lacing. Nutty malt aroma with some flowers and dried fruits. Sweet malt flavour, but with a good bitter (grapefruit) finish.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 24, 2006
Poured from the bottle, a clear brown with a good frothy off-white head. An earthy malty aroma with hints of sweet caramal and slightly smokey. The flavour has sweet caramal again with hints of stewed plums. A smooth mouth feel initially, giving way to a strong bitter and dry finish. OK, but I prefer the Youngs Winter Warmer.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2006
Bottled. Sweet vanilla and plum cookie aroma. Especially great just after pooring the beer in the glass. Brown color, beige head, fair lace. Sweet start, light bitter at first but very bitter finish, lots of spices, raisin, hint of vanilla, dry finish.

PorterCall (44) - (Formerly UK), DENMARK - FEB 3, 2006
Smooth brown/orange colour, nice head if short lived, aroma caramel slight nuts/ fruit, nice balance, smooth malty caramel chocolate flavour and nice on the palate. A recommended winter brew.

Habanero (2563) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2006
Bottle: Pours with a clear, dark amber body and a medium, relatively short lasting, beige head. Spicy, hoppy and malty aroma. Pleasant light sweet flavour with caramel - some hops are precent too and notes of chocolate. Light to medium bodied. Nice bitter, lasting finish. This beer is well balanced and enjoyable.

nicholai (100) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2006
Copper colored - with honey or maple syrup in the smell. Also some metallic and burnt flavors. A Very acidic bitterness in the taste with some candy sugar undertones. Lingering hop taste on the tongue.
