Fyldig, rik smak fra ristede karamellmalter, utsøkt britisk humle og rosiner - ingredienser som sammen med vann og gjær også skaper den rødlige gløden og det gyldne skummet. Fyr i peisen, rull ut bjørneskinnet, hell i glasset. La Lervig Winter Ale med sine 8,3 alkoholprosenter varme opp vinterkvelden.

Holmen2 (2265) - NORWAY - NOV 25, 2015
From bottle at Clarion Energy Hotel with KL and ES. Muddy brown. Beige head. Aroma of prunes, dates, roasted nuts, dark syrup and brittle. Taste of medium dark malt, prunes, dates, rasins, dark caramel, honey and brittle, balanced with medium bitterness. A hint of herbs in aftertaste. Still not too sweet, and with good drinkability.

Pours a hazy tawny brown with a white head. Toffee and raisin taste with a very full mouthfeel. Great, complex flavours with an aftertaste reminiscent of a dark rum. This is an excellent winter ale. Thanks to Holmen 1 for the bottle!

tricksta_p (2422) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2015
Aroma of dark malt, caramel, raisins, hint of chocolate, dark fruity notes, alcohol. Flavour is sweet with a light bittersweet finish. Body and aroma are okay but I’m not a fan of such ultra sweet beers.

caesar (5971) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from Biernavigatie, BB Summer 2016, large sample. Cloudy brown color, short frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, spicy yeast, raisin, slight fruity. The raisins make it smell like an aged belgian dark, although it’s not aged at all, seeing the BB date. Slight sweet in taste, lots of raisin again. Aroma is a bit more complex, but flavor is all about raisins. Interesting stuff, though a bit one-dimensional.

Reffs (2) - Roskilde, DENMARK - APR 28, 2015 does not count
A real treat! Gentle despite it’s amount of alcohol. It is very tasteful with a pleasant appereance of rye malt.
