COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

gyllenbock (4460) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2012
Bottle from Ølbutikken. A bit hazy dark brown with a white head. Sweet with a lot of malt, dark bread, raisin and brown sugar. Also some notes of alcohol. The mouth feel was creamy.

Beer4000 (4407) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2011
330 ml bottle. Clear copper body with a fine, creamy beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, brown sugar and dry fruit with just a little hint of alcohol. Flavor of sweet malt, but not as sweet as expected from aroma, in fine balance with the bitterness and alcohol. Also caramel, candy sugar, dry fruit with a bitterness that becomes more obvious in the aftertaste. Long aftertaste with more bitterness and warming alcohol. It a fine beer, not perfect but Lervig is definitively into something here.

Cunningham (4348) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Bottle. Dark amber colour with an off white head. Aroma of dark fruits. A flavour mix of roasted malt and dark fruits.

Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 4, 2011
Flaske 0,33l - gave fra Rune. Takker! Gyldenbrun / amber. Høyt svakt farget skum som starter høyt men flater ut i løpet av et par minutter. Forsiktig maltaroma med fruktige undertoner. God. Smaken litt sherryaktig men alkoholen slår inn etterhvert og overtar. Tørr fruktig ettersmak. Litt uvariert - men en god "winter warmer". Dette burde vi ha mer av på våre breddegrader.

tkrjukoff (4022) - SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2011
Courtesy of gnoff. Pours clear dark amber brownish wuth a small bubbly beige head. Aroma is sweet, raisins, malty, fruity and hoppy. Flavor is fruity, phenolic, malty, raisins, a bit sweet, madeira and bitter. Finishes bitter malty.

ClubGonzo (3951) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle. Deep amber body with a small, quickly disappearing off-white head. Nose is caramel, raisins, booze and a bit of bread yeast, which I find kinda strange. Taste is strong notes of caramel, with some tones of burnt sugar, roasted malts, alcohol and hints of raisins. Smooth mouthfeel. Burnt sugar again in the aftertaste, flanked by some boozy notes. Well integrated flavor profile, if not too overtly exciting all in all. A nice winter warmer, and a pretty drinkable - and likable - beer. Best one from Lervig that I’ve had so far.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - AUG 28, 2012
Pours a clear and dark brown beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel, yeast and hops with citrus. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall an average beer.

Palme (3240) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2011
0.33l bottle. Dark nut brown body with a nice fading, off-white head. Aromas are yeasty, caramel and and prunes. Its sweetish, definitely some dark caramel, also a nice alcohol sting that combined with the lively carbonation gives a little kick. Yeah, I like this. Nice and mildly bitter lasting finish.

JohnRMurdoch (3216) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 19, 2012
330ml bottle from Rune. Hazy medium brown colour, good head. Fruity caramel malt aroma. Sour malt flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Not really my thing.

Hermod (3086) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
33cl bottle. Bb 14.06.16. Copper color, thin white head. Caramel, raisins, sticky boozy notes in aroma. Raisins, malt, sweet bready notes in flavor. Quite boozy taste as well. Way too much alcohol coming through to be enjoyable. As an English strong ale this is a disappointment for sure.
