Bottle at home. Pours a clear mahogany color with a khaki head. Fruity and sweet aroma of diacetyl, bubble gum, peaches, caramel, soda and pine. The flavor has pine, dried apricot, caramel, wort and leather. Has a slick and soft mouth feel, medium body and a balanced bitterness. A sweet and malty IPA. Too bad with the diacetyl, but interesting dark IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Galatea, 25/11-15.
First of all I must say that the label change was a big loss in this case. The old one with fox was maybe the best label Sigtuna has ever made. Well well...
Clear mahogany with a short beige head.
Aroma is slightly burnt bread, spent coffee grounds, wet wood, butterscotch/knäck and just hints of citrus/dried fruit.
Taste is a bit more round with butterscotch/knäck/chocolate, grapefruit, some spent coffee grounds and wet wood here as well, pine and resin.
Medium to lighter body with soft carbonation and slight watery/soft texture.
Overall a slight harsh and woody take on a more British IPA with more malty notes of chocolate. Mellowed a bit when aired and temped.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Systembolaget in Stockholm. The beer starts great flora, intense fresh with a mild and slightly malty-sweetish body. The hops are intense, fresh grassy with nice grapefruity hints together with pine and resin. Smooth, nice long-lasting aftertaste. Moderate bitterness on an intense high-hopped brew! Great!! But why is this specially "Winter"?? I couldn’t taste the promised chocolate and toffee...
