Its head builds up tall and foamy. It is firm and rocky, light tan color and slow fading. A small thin cap hangs on till the very last sip. On the way down the glass it leaves some nice rings of lace. The body has a deep, very dark reddish amber/old copper color with some visible carbonation. The aroma has a modest presence of spicy/herbal hops with a hint of holiday spices and something citrusy. The flavor has a solid hop presence with citrus and spicy/leafy notes. The hops are supported by a mildly sweet and dark bready maltiness. Within it are also notes of brown sugar and a touch of cinnamon. In the finish hop flavor picks up and adds dryness and bit of bitterness. The body has a medium to full feel with a slick smooth texture and active tingly carbonation.

Kopparfärgad med stort ljusbrunt skum. Doftar en del humle men mest maltigt. Lite brödig smak med inslag av humle!

Backlog. Tried a number of times both on tap and bottle. One of the best winter seasonals out there. Oppigård always delivers.

jmgreenuk (4336) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2014
Tap at the Green Lion, Malmo. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy slightly off-white head. The aroma is yeast and red berry fruit. The flavour is moderate bitter light sweet with a rich sweet fruit spiced hop palate. Over medium bodied with average carbonation. Everything a winter ale should be.

hman43 (336) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JAN 31, 2014
There is a hoppy aroma mixed with a pine and maple like smell. There is also caramel mixed in. It is a nice amber color with a frothy head that is light brown in color. It has an initial spicy bit to it with a light caramel flavor combined with herbs.

Rödmörk med lite skum. Lagom kolsyra. Fyllig, brödig & maltig smak. Lång eftersmak. Helt OK.
