anders37 (15557) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2005
Red-brown in colour. With almost no head at all. Some roasted malty aroma and some spicyness. Sweet malty flavour with some spices going over in a nice bitterness in the aftertaste.

vyvvy (3609) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Pours very dark amber / brown with a quickly leaving tan head. The aroma has lots of molasses, toffee, toasted malt and some nuttiness. Medium crisp body with extra amounts of sharp carbonation. The flavor starts out with the aroma traits, but thinner and lightly metallic. The finish is even more metallic and astringent. A decent aroma here, but the flavor doesn’t live up to it.

eaglefan538 (2828) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Bottle from SL, pour was deep amber to red, some brown hues too, decent initial head, diminishing, though, leaving only light lacing. The aroma was roasted malts, caramel, almost a touch of coffee. The flavor was roasted malts, touch of coffee, toffee to slight brown sugar, faint chocolate, no significant spicing, dry hoppy finish. Not my cup of tea or beer.

mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown colour with beige head. Refreshing and a bit fruity on the nose - hops, some dried fruits and liquorice. Flavour is mostly about the hops. Also some roasted malts with some dried fruits (without the sweetness). The finish is quite dry and bitter, The aroma was superior to the flavour.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Deep brown coloured body with a hazy tan head. Aroma of light spice, roasted malt, coffee and some nuts. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong malty flavour with potent pit fruit sweetness from grapes and prunes on top of nutty characteristics. Aftertaste shows some of the alcohol, a bit of the carbonation and some of the sweetness. Overall, a pretty good beer, but nothing entirely special from a Winter from Europe. I sampled this 500 mL bottle purchased on sale for US$3.99 from Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 03-May-2008, sampled on 26-May-2008 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Bottle at tasting at Chris Fischer’s (from Liars Club) house. Pours with an amber body topped by a thin to medium thick head with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with a touch ofbread. Light to medium bodied, watery and smooth.

4th November 2008. Hazy brown beer. Small tan head. Malty start with a sweet malt mid. Then a few hops and spices in the dry finish. Well joined up.

NielsenRatings (8275) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Bottle @ home. Pours a dark maroon body with an almost non-existent tan head. Sweet fairly dark malty aroma with hints of red licorice, cherries, and other red fruits. Low carbonated, tangy, slightly bitter, red fruity, medium malty body. Sort of sour, sweet, and brown malty finish. Not as strong of flavor as most English Strong Ale.

Cybercat (2990) - Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Pours a clear dark golden amber with a pale golden tan head. Aroma is not strong, is malty with a hint of apple. Malty flavor is rather plain, with a woody hint and not much else. Texture is fizzy and just a teenzy thin. I’ve had better - but I’ve had worse.
