Leighton (11877) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle at the 1st CBC Sunday Tasting. Thanks to the Cad. Pours a gorgeous amber with a small, white head. Winter berry and spice aroma. Medium to big sweet flavor, just subtle raisins, bit of caramel. Some golden raisins. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Warm finish, sweet berries, some light raisin notes, toasted sugar. Pretty sold beer this.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours a golden dark brown beer, with a small head which dissolves into larger bubbles rather quickly. Very sweet aroma, fruity, smells like strawberry jam! The taste starts out with caramel and malty toffee, then hints of strawberries, finishes with raisins, some more strawberry hints and a kinda medicinal alcohol presence. The alcohol is pretty noticable overall, maybe a little too much so I’d say. I also get a bit of ash late in the aftertaste, which isn’t particularly pleasant. Nice balance. Smooth mouthfeel with low/soft carbonation. Overall it’s one of the better Norwegian winter warmer/christmas beers I’ve tried.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2011
Bottle thanks to Rune. Cheers my friend. Hazy brown russet colour with lasting creamy beige head. Very malty aroma with some raisins on the aroma. Middle of summer but hey never stopped me drinking a winter beer. It is a really malty beer. It does remind me of something like Youngs Winter Warmer when I first ever had it. I like it. Always liked winter warmers. Balanced and some hop bite on the finish. Really very good I thought. Tasty toffee and malt. Really enjoyable. Good hoppy bite on the finish. Wow, this is a good beer. Hmm, good winter warmer.

Scopey (7444) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2011
Bottle at chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig ’11. It pours hazy red-brown with a thin off-white head and low carbonation. The nose is brown bread, brown sugar, earth and sweet caramel. The taste is brown sugar, light spice, ginger, clove, earth, caramel and raisin, with sweet caramel finish. Alcohol is well hidden, yet the beer is surprisingly thin. Not bad.

Dark amber color; medium sized compact head. Some malt aroma, with light chocolate and yeast. Medium bodied, the mouthfeel is quite round; caramel flavor, with light chocolate and traces of liquorice; the bitterness is quite high, although unnoticed. Pleasant.
