exeter (431) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2015
Bought from a growler bar. Pours a deep reddish brown with a thin cloud head. Nice lacing. The taste is nutty, bready with caramel and toffee and slight vanilla. Then you have a thick sweetness left behind but some added bitterness lingers the longest. Quite nice. Not as Vanilla oriented as North American Winter brews. will find again.

Pours a darker ale colour, slight head that quickly dissapears. Smell is slightly hoppy, taste is very gentle with a super balanced sweet taste. A very nice beer!

agent_persik (474) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 19, 2015
Clean brown color, medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, malt, grain, nuts, honey and spicy English hops, some metallic notes. Dry sweet taste with medium bitter finish and dry hoppy aftertaste. Light to medium body and soft carbonation. Quite drinkable.

dnicolaescu (1033) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 13, 2015
The aroma is malty and grainy, without any fruity ale notes - just like a German bock. A touch of caramel and a dash of herbal hops. Some oily toast when it warms up. The flavor has a shade of sweetness, but the dry hoppy and nutty bitterness hides the sugar right away. Some good diacetyl smooths the body. Nice.

Tayeth (319) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 9, 2015
Der Geruch ist malzig und duftet intensiv nach Sirup. Geschmack röstig und ebenfalls nach Karamell und Sirup, allerdings etwas wässrig.

Geruch ein bisschen Keks. Leicht alkoholisch. Im geschmack dann bitter und leicht wässrig, aber insgesamt stimmig. Nettes Weihnachtsbier.

Unde (465) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Amber colour, light head on top. Aroma has nuts, dried fruits, sweet forest berries. Taste has caramel malts, nuts, berries and some strawberry too! Medium-to-light body and high carbonation. Pretty ok winter ale.
