This strong ale is as rich and complex as it is drinkable. A blend of six malts and four hops creates an ale with deep carmel character, spicy hop flavor and a dry roasty finish. Itís spelled differently because itís Vonderful.

Bomber thanks to MikeJ. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. A sweet nose of roast and chocolates. The flavor really comes in like a nice Porter with roast, coffee, deep sweet malts, dry, light earth. Very enjoyable, Iíd like to try this again. Something between a BW and Porter.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Draft @ PDX. Deep brown with a small light tan head. Aroma of toffee, bready malt, fruity and citrus. Flavor is toffee/caramel malt with a medium hop bitterness and some fruity esters. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Really nice beer, malty but some hop character balances this only out nicely.

Lovely hoppy aroma, rich flavor and wonderful warm winter palette . Now this is a true winter ale, pours a lovely dark red and has the most wonderful rich hoppy flavor, perfect for those winter evening in front of the fire. Highly recommended ale and really is a Vinter Varmer.

On tap at Laughing Planet. Dark brown in color with a smooth tan head. Slightly nutty taste with some malt and roasted flavors. Not overly roasted...a solid winter beer.
