Fatehunter (1335) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Two fingers of tan head on a copper colored body. The smell is candy, wet grain and lemon. The taste is a moderate bitter and malt mix. A little unbalanced. The sweetness comes through stronger beginning to middle with dry bitter ending. Moderate carbonation and medium body with a slight sticky feeling. An enjoyable drink.

Little head, Golden brown. Light nose with notes of hops. Medium body and length. Caramel and grapefruit.

Iphonephan (3534) - McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On draft at rustico Arlington. Pours a deep amber with a thick off white head leaving heavy lacing. Crisp hop aroma. Toffee notes softening an intense hop bitterness. Tasty.

obguthr (4021) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Wood and nut nose. Clear copper, medium yellow head, nice lacing. Burned toast with walnut accents. Walnuts linger on the palate and provide a pleasant bitterness. Nice, but doesn’t excite very much.

mzaar (1687) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2012
Bärnstensfärgad öl, med ett massivt och långvarigt skum. Ser oerhört snyggt ut. Doftar av aprikos, knäck och mörk sirap. Samma går igen i smaken, upptill några brända toner.

Cool_Bond (1531) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2012
Smells minimal, taste not so much more. However, the more flavor in the aftertaste. Boring beer unfortunately. Would not recomend this beer. Thin in flavor.

rarbring (1496) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2012
Aroma: Distinct smell of grape fruit, combined with grass, bread and a bit of ... almond? In all very floral.
Appearance: Clear dark amber liquid, much foam with remaining laces.
Taste: The taste is dominated by the hops in citric aromas combined with sweet caramel malt, a well balanced brew.
Palate: Good carbonation which makes it pleasant to drink.
Overall: Perfect on a snowy evening like this!
Note: Bottle. 2012-01-21: A vertical tasting of ’11, ’10 and ’09 shows that storing does not improve this beer. Reviewed 2009-12-15.

Bottle, Systembolaget. As nice as ever, maybe it should have been a bit heavier considering the winter season.

Lacks spice and aromas found in most winter ales, no cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, cloves notes in the flavors or aromas. Low ABV is not as warming as other winter ales. There is a great hop flavor that is typically uncharacteristic of most winter ales, more bittering hops than aroma hops This is also missing the malty sweetness found in higher gravity winter ales. Overall this is a great strong ale, but not necessarily a great winter ale when compared to the typical styles of other winter ales.
