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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
