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.

Mikon kanssa Pyöräkadulla. Not exactly my cup of beer, quite nice ale still, sweet and malty in a drinkable way.

nihtila (2086) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
24.1.2014. Kuohui pullosta ulos! Tuoksussa karamellista mallasta, rusinaa ja pihkaa. Maku on melko makea, kypsää hedelmää, rusinaa, hentoa yrttisyyttä. Makeutta on hieman liikaa, mikä tuntuu varsinkin jälkimaussa.

caesar (5966) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from Biernavigatie, BB Summer 2016, large sample. Cloudy brown color, short frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, spicy yeast, raisin, slight fruity. The raisins make it smell like an aged belgian dark, although it’s not aged at all, seeing the BB date. Slight sweet in taste, lots of raisin again. Aroma is a bit more complex, but flavor is all about raisins. Interesting stuff, though a bit one-dimensional.

Cimbasso (482) - - 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!

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 17, 2011
It’s still winter with a lot of snow in the extreme north where I live, so a warming winter beer seems just appropriate on a Saturday eve. 330ml bottle, bb.31.09.15, bought at Vinmonopolet Oslo City. Pours a cloudy, apricot coloured body topped by firm amount of beige, foam that stays well and leaves fragile lacing at the glassware. Smell of sweet malts and dried fruits. Plums and raisin in flavour together with earthy malts followed by a ending containing lighter notes of yeasty fruitiness along with alcohol warmth. Well bodied, but aroma and flavour feels rather subdued (Tromsø, 16.04.2011).

berlinoise2go (675) - NORWAY - APR 25, 2011
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Storo), Oslo. Clear, reddish golden colour. Finger-thick light beige head, decent retention, settles as a thin ring. Aroma is fairly closed; needs quite a warming-up to reveal a nice, woody and sweet sherry-like aroma with toffee, dried fruit (raisins) and alcohol. Medium body, soft/average carbonation. Taste is subtle/restrained, but well-balanced with mild acidity and bitterness on a sweet malty base. Aftertaste is relatively dry and woody. OK brew, but had expected a more powerful aroma.

saxo (15393) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2011
