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.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 Great version - sweetness of dried fruit and caramel with a dry bready backbone. I thought the booze was well masked,not raw at all. Something like a barley wine but a bit more mellow. Lots of dried raisin in there.

suurjuust (2910) - ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2015
Murky reddish-brown pour, small quickly diminishing off-white head. Nose is sweet, almost sticky, booze hints, lots of raisins, caramel. Flavor is sweet, syrupy, caramel, malt, lots more raisins. Some bitterness in the finish, but the overall impression is still sweet and raisiny.

thirstyrabbit (1749) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle. Hazy copper body, small head. Aroma has toffee-like sugary malts with only a weak hint of English hops. Very sweet malty taste with some white raisins, there is not enough hoppiness to properly balance this. The ABV is not problematic at all but the sweetness really is. Drinkable, but uncomplex and underwhelming.

martjoobolut (3148) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle (from Koht). Pours copper with beige head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is sweet, malt, caramel, fruits, dates. Falvor is sweet and bitter, malt, caramel, dates. Finish is dry bitter with some fruityness. Alcohol is noticeable. Overall: good brew, but a bit too boozy.

Kauge (1617) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle. BB 14.08.16. Pours a rusty, murky brownish amber with small, fast receding head. The nose is sweet, soft, warm, caramelly, toffee-y, slightly boozy. Tastes along the same lines, reminiscent of Fuller’s Vintage Ale, but a bit lesser than that. Sweet, full, warm, caramelly. Pretty soft and smooth, active thin carbonation. Not bad, in fact pretty nice.

Holmen2 (2914) - 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.

Cimbasso (772) - - AUG 24, 2015
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!
