Dark brown. Spices and dark malt and syrup to the nose. Medium bodied, a dark warming malt with dried fruit and spices. Medium bitterness with hints of pine. Perfect on a cold winter eve. Nice!

Dark brown body with red tones, beige head, varied lacing. Aroma; malts, coriander, cinnamon, butter. Taste; dark malts, grassy hops, coriander, roasted malts, dry hops. Dusty, malty and half roasted finish with some hops. Feels normal, somewhat dry, somewhat thin. Overall; tasty, but not overwhelming.

RexTalionis (3157) - FINLAND - APR 30, 2014
Bottle 50 cl. Pours black in color with a tan head. Spicy notes, cardamum, christmas feeling here in aroma, subtle though. Spicy in taste as well, cardamum and some herbal notes. Decent. Reminds me in a way of some vintage xmas bre made by anchor brewing.

This one looks like it tastes. Wonderfully warming with some raisins, a bit of wood, some leaves and chocolate. Deep in its taste, deep in its aromas and just really well balanced. Wonderful one.

Bottle from Cunningham - many thanks, Henrik! The beer pours out in a deep dark amber-brown colour with steady low head and medium body. Nice aroma of barley and herbs. Taste of malt, barley, bread, nuts, herbs and spices. Aromatic finish with cinnamon woods hints. Nice one.

Backlog. Bottle from systembolaget. A pretty average winter-seasonal. Not really my cup of tea.

jmgreenuk (5931) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 4, 2014
Cask at the Bishops Arms (Gustav Adolfs Torg) Malmo. Poured a clear dark brown with a bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malt light red berry fruit. The flavour is weak bitter with a watery light hop spice palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. No sweetness at all in the palate and lacks flavour & body. Way too light for a winter ale.

Psytron (1607) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Smell of coffee, malts. Dark brown colour, brown head. Aroma of copper, spices, coffee. Metallic. Medium bitter. Very flat carbon.
