3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home via sheps, cheers john!
not something I would immediately plump for...but I’m open minded. Pours dark chestnut with fluffy beige head. Subdued molasses nose. Full bodied creamy texture, peppery ginger kick at the back of the palate, demerara sugar, surprisingly tasty. Dry malty finish with lingering spice, but subtle. Not OTT

Draft at Hennesy’s San Diego. Red amber colour, and some cinnamon and little clove in the nose. Ok but not mine

Ljusröd, liten skumkrona, ganska bitter smak. Ganska mkt beska i eftersmaken. Mittemellan billig o "äkta" hantverksöl. OK, men finns bättre winter lagers.

Tap. Pours clear brown with pillowy off white head that lasts and laces. Smells of caramel, cinnamon, and toasted malt. Drinks smoothly with mild lingering hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied. Tastes of biscuit, sugar, caramel, and cinnamon. Creamy mouthfeel.

Tasty and will warm you up on a cold day. Tried this a few weeks ago in a mix pack and forgot to rate so my details are lacking. Good but not something I’d pick out of a crowd.

Drank from a bottle, so I didn’t get a look at the stuff. Nose was sweet malts with a fragrant spiciness. Taste was similar - malts, spices and moderate hop finish. Mouth seemed reasonable. Overall, a decent winter/holiday brew.

A beautiful amber red. Not a lot of notable smells on the aroma side of things, but there’s definitely a great combination of spices to give this a really nice, warm flavor. This beer also has a really great, almost spicy finish.
