Kauge (1557) - 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.

martjoobolut (2891) - 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.

Beer5000 (5862) - 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.

Palme (4065) - 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.

Alexus (241) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2011
A nice beer which matches the winter season great. Nice amber color with a white head. Spicy and a little raisin with a bit caramel. A good winter warmer, and I look forward to the winter holidays with this in my glass.
