Draught at Bishops Arms, V. Hamng, Göteborg
Date: November 30, 2007.
Clear dark coper color, tan head. Hoppy and slight bitter taste, some herbs. Also roasted with a faint touch of alcohol. Rather fresh aftertaste with roasted tones in it. Hoppy and fruity scent, also some alcohol. Some toffee as well. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. Very nice! I wish Göteborg had been given a higher piece of the cake ;)

Rerate at Ölrepubliken, Göteborg, on November 23, 2010
Very clear dark red color, tan head. Sweet, yet dry and herbal, fairly bitter taste with a crisp, clean, herbal, mineral, bitter finish. Some bready notes and hints of cream too. Medium full moussy light co2 mouthfeel. Medium high herbal bitterness. Sweet and fruity scent.
When served this cool almost felt like a dark lager or at least bottom fermeneted. When warmed up quite a bit the fruity notes got more potent though. I spoke with the brewer a bit this evening and the beer had fermented at 21 C, and was brwed with a top fermented yeast.
Very drinkable, very nice, though for a Christmas beer I personally want some spices, but hey, I’m like that...

Cask @ Bishop Arms Malmö, Savoy. Brun öl med dragning åt rött. I stort sett utan skum. Doft av mörkt bröd, russin och lätta rostade toner. Samma återkommer i smaken tillsammans med en lätt kryddighet.. Trevlig julkänsla.

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2014
Backlog. 2011-version. On tap at Green Lion Inn. Im not really a fan of the winter-seasonals and this was just one in the line of un-impressing winter-seasonal.
