MarkoNm (767) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 23, 2014
Pours a dark coppery color, topped with an average beige colored head. Malty aroma, notes of caramel, biscuits, slightly buttery and nutty with some soya sauce aroma. Taste is sweet with notes of caramel and biscuits, finishes with a very mild bitterness and some spicy feel right at the end. Easily drinkable, smooth.

Bottle. Clear Brown, with medium Brown head. Fruity, caramel, almost buttery, nose. Sweet, light bitter taste. Fresher carbonation than expected, medium texture. Dried berries and nice caramel weithin the aftertaste. Nice one. Germans are not the only ones with good Winter beer.

djoeye (1855) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2014
Clear brown body, good fawn head, varied and crocheted lacing. Aroma; caramel malts, lots of toffee fudges, dry plum peels, hazelnut honey. Taste; caramel malts, butterscotch, grassy juicy hops, earthy notes, leads to a half dry finish with dusty hops, dried fruits, juicy lingering malts into plummy notes. Ok body, ok carbonation. Overall ok premium. [50cl brown bottle, abv5.3%, B@Systembolaget Kiruna, 2Ä70c, BB23OCT15, T@hŲme]

MiP (13799) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle, 5.3%. Sweetish and malty aroma. Clear brown colour. Big stable light brown head. The flavour is spicy and herbal, teaish, sweetish with a mild bitterness to (almost) balance. After more sips, the herbs fade away but the bitterness and maltiness stay resulting in a more balanced beer than I though to begin with.
