The flavor is sweet and very hoppy combined with notes of fruit, caramel, and elderberries, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks Papsoe for supplying this.

Bottled, thanks TimE! Mahogany colour. Caramelly and resiny. Medium bodied with deep, deep layers of caramel. More tar and citrus, mostly toffee and caramel. Lingering but careful bitterness. More warming than refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, probably from Pizza Port Bottle Shop. Pours amber with a 2 finger foamy off-white head. Aroma is quite floral. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is very floral, and it covers mild roast caramel. There is enough non-floral hop to render a mildly harsh bitter, but it’s largely floral. Finishes bitter. There’s a lot of malt here, but the hop handles it well. I really like it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy amber with a large, fizzy off-white head, medium-long retention with great lacing. Aroma is heavy biscuit and cereal malt, light toasted and caramel malt, medium earthy and herbal hops, fruity esters, and notes of cedar. Flavor is moderately bitter earthy, spicy, and herbal hops with a nice supporting cereal malt body. Notes of light fruity esters emerge late; well-attenuated with little residual sugar and a dry finish. Medium-light body, low warmth, and moderate carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2010 375ml, bottle-conditioned, dark green glass, capped. called ’5 hop ale’ with no mention of winter, but appears to be the same beer given their tasting notes and details. amber body, tan head. nose has mild sulfuric skunked notes, medium- chewy caramel malts, mild doughy english ale yeast - slightly dirty - and dried harvest-scented hops (dusty, grainy, gritty but still leafy). medium+ body, mild touch of alcohol on the back. chewy toast and light bourbon-honey flavored malts, medium+ pungent hops: leafy, resinous and drying. medium+ body, natural carbonation is lush. finish has an off smoke note. an interesting beer and perhaps one of the few highly hopped strong english bitter style beer that I would enjoy, if not for the ultraviolet light spoilage.
