3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle courtesy of my Secret Santa, gunnar. Aroma is very sweet with lots of caramel and toffee. Lighter burnt sugar character along with raisin, fig and prune. Hints of roast and a touch of alcohol. Pours a slightly hazy, copper amber color with some light brown hues. A thin, tan head quickly disappears. No lacing and moderate legs. Flavor is also fairly sweet, more so in the finish. Moderate caramel and toffee notes with faint roast. Moderate raisin with light fig and prune and faint cherry. Some burnt sugar and a touch of alcohol in the finish. Low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium low carbonation. Low astringency and low but noticeable alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright beer and good for the winter but I am not a huge fan of the overly sweet, raisin and burnt sugar forward beer. A nice sipping beer, but I think I would choose a bigger beer for a sipper on a cold night.

Brunlig med lite skum. Aroma av malt, rosiner og annen tørket frukt, gjær og kanskje litt karamell? Smaken er søtlig malt og så mildt bitter, med innslag av tørket frukt, karamell og alkohol. Medium/tykk konsistens. Ok mild bitterhet i ettersmaken.

Oh yes nicely warming and some warming flavour too but in general quite boring and unmemorable.

Short beige head. Light yellow berries aroma. Dark opaque copper body. Very little hop or malt in the taste, but a nice balance with light bitterness and average warmth. Pleasant after all.

Light brown, bubbly beer with a brief beige head. Bread and earthiness on the nose. Coffee, bread, raisin, a bit dry but has a this caramelised sweetness in it. A mix of slight bitterness and sourness. Crispy carbonation. Medium body. Refreshingly different in my opinion and the sourness is in good amounts. I like this.
