UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 Bottle at home ... Deep brown ... coffee malt nose little smokey ... deep rich fruity malts ... some cherry... little chocolate... decent balance. Im generally not a fan of Meantime but this was a decent beer.

harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2007
500ml Bottle from Sainsbury. Very deep ruby with lasting dark beige head. Slightly smokey aroma. Decent milky coffee notes. It’s a kind of strong smokey porter. Would like a bit more depth in the mouth. Still a nice smoked beer.

TBone (11918) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2007
Bottled (BB 10/2009)
Dark ruby color, small beige head. Nose has toffee, caramel, whiskey barrel kind of vanilla. Aroma is similar to Highland Park -whiskey (sniffed side by side with this). Medium-bodied. Sweet chocolate, some smokey notes, overall quite soft. Flavors are not attacking or overwhelming. Nice beer to sip and as it is "only" 5,4 %, not alcoholic (as "winter warmers" often are).

thewolf (10783) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Vinens Verden, Odense. Pours a deep mahogany with a small, rather fizzy off white head. Aroma is rather roasted with a little background of coffee. Lively mouthfeel. Flavour is liqourice, coffee and a chocolate background. There is a smokiness to it as well. Perhaps this is a bit thin on the ground. But as it sits in the glass, it somehow settles a little and turns just 0.2 better.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 13, 2011
Etwas gesüßt wirkender Malzantrunk, eher mild. Im Mittelteil zwar insgesamt kräftiger, angesichts der 5,4% sogar ziemlich aromatisch. Wenig herb, die hintergründigen Schokoladennoten werden noch stärker und kommen bald in den Vordergrund, abgestimmt und sehr passend. Eine minimale Säurlichkeit passt ebenfalls sehr gut ins Bier, sie wird aber schnell von der Malzigkeit überdeckt, die von Sekunde zu Sekunde schokoladiger wird. Ein durchaus gelungenes Winterbier, passend aromatisch und süß genug, um einem den Winter zu versüßen. 11/11/11/10/13/11

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2008
Very dark ruby red with a small, creamy head. The aroma has a light sweetness, notes of malt and smoke. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of roasted malt, smoke, fruit, syrup, light citrus and the finish is dry with a light bitterness and a rather pronounced smoky note. This nice brew has a rather full body!
