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.

larsga (6893) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 14, 2011
Medium beige head. Lovely deep reddish amber body with carbonation. Sugary raisiny caramelly aroma with earthy fruity notes. Dry-sweet earthy roasty papery taste with caramelly raisiny notes. Mid-to-full body. Dry-sweet soy sauce and raisins aftertaste with earthy spicy buttery notes. Very nice, and quite unusual. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly.)

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.

Dark amber color; medium sized compact head. Some malt aroma, with light chocolate and yeast. Medium bodied, the mouthfeel is quite round; caramel flavor, with light chocolate and traces of liquorice; the bitterness is quite high, although unnoticed. Pleasant.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2012
Dark brown colour and tan head, very gracious lacings. Fruits and actually pastry in the aroma. A bit low in taste, which is also dominated by fruits. But I like how the finish becomes more and more pronounced, it’ gets a bit bitter in the end. Very low in carbonation. (Bottle)

Kaatuu lasiin mahonginruskeana ja utuisena, joka saa oluen näyttämään likaisen väriseltä. Vaahto on noin sormen paksuinen ja melko nopeaan katoava jääden kuitenkin ohueksi kerrokseksi oluen pinnalle. Hajussa on huomattavan paljon tummaa kuivattua hedelmää, etenkin rusinaa, mutta myös tuoretta päärynää. Makea, hieman marjainen mallaspohja tulee takaa myös esiin, mutta melko suoraviivainen brittiale tämä on tuoksun perusteella. Maku on vahvemman kuivatun hedelmäinen ja nyt rusina tunkee vahvemmin esiin. Makeaa toffeemaista mallastakin on reilusti joukossa, sekä pähkinäisyyttä, hiven jopa paahteista pähkinää. Hiven tuoreempaa hedelmäistä otetta on joukossa, mutta hyvin vähän. Suutuntuma on melko hiilihappoinen ja pistelevän humaloitu. Alkoholikin tuntuu hieman. Melko suoraviivainen olut, jossa on omaa twistiään eikä ole asetettu täysin perinteiseen muottiin. Alkoholi ei ihan täysin piilossa, vaikkei mikään älytön lämmike maun puolesta olekaan.
