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

jmgreenuk (6751) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - 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 (879) - 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.

wildbeercat (354) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 11, 2014
500ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: Pine needles, caramel, lots of hoppy bitterness. Appearance: Slightly hazy, deep mahogany body with a massive, creamy vanilla-white head. Medium+ visible carbonation. Superb lacing. Taste: First flavors I get are pine needles and moderately bitter hops, followed by caramel malt, a maple-esque sweetness. Full flavored and delicious! Palate: Medium body, low carbonation. Long finish that ends on pine-y hops. Slightly warms. Overall: A pretty fantastic winter ale! It reminds me of Christmas trees. Great stuff!!

Sparf (196) - Östersund, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2014
Doftar sött av blötlagd säd, men med en lätt citrusfrisk ton som bryter av. Rödbrun, vacker kulör och ett stadigt, men något snabbt halverat skum. Välhumlad och hyfsat balanserad om än med en viss metallisk beska. Rak, enkel och något menlös smak. Medelfyllig och med en kvardröjande, mjukt behaglig beska. En bra allroundöl till vintermat.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2013
6oz on tap at Noen’s. Totally hazy, darker amber red color. Thin off-white bubbly head. Couple bits of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Reasonably easy drinking. Toasty, caramel malts. Light spice. Moderate bitter taste. Moderate sweet. Light belgian yeast influence. Some euro type crisp hops. Solid, mildly hoppy belgian amber strongish winterish ale.

Aaron68 (608) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2013
500 ml bottle @ my parents place.December 25, 2013 Beer bought @ "Systembolaget Strømstad" Beer enjoyed from a wineglass with Pinnekjøtt and Aquavit. Amber in color with a thin beige head and medium carbonation. Aroma is hop,citrus,grape fruit and a bit floral. Tastes a bit hop and fruity with a slightly bitter finish. The beer reminds me of a Pale Ale or IPA,but a weak one All in all a ok low ABV beer.
