imdownthepub (10139) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2005
Bottle Conditioned, aged 3.5yrs. Red amber with lacing white head. Full flavoursome rounded beer with rich malty base. Plenty of rich fruit and nutty flavours balancing a drying finishing bitterness. Worth aging this beer for a while, good results.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2005
Bottle. Amber colour with medium sized head. Malty with balancing bitterness. Medium bodied and highly drinkable due to it’s balanced simplicity!?!

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2004
Bottle from The Beers of Europe shop near Kings Lynn, Bottle conditioned. A dark amber / mid-Brown colour. Nice dry-ish malty taste. Quite "warming" & Biscuity.

skortila (4482) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2004
Very smooth sweet smell; malty and fruity. Clear, reddish-orange coloured with a thin white head. Taste is sweet, very nutty and bitter in the end. Bitter and smooth palate. Nutty taste remains. Quite decent brew, above expectations!

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2004
Deep bronze hue with virtually no head. Brandy and toffee nose. Nutty, malty taste with toffee flavours a little thin and watery. Disappointing.

RichardGretton (4239) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2003
Flat looking standard ale with a standard English hopped beer aroma. Very watery flavour with a bitter finish. Overall a poor version of a basic English ale.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2003
Bottled. Deep amber colour, soft modest white head that had dissipated by the end. Beautiful hop aroma with a strong malty backbone to it. This has a sweat, succulent blend of malts and definitely fulfils the expectations that the label ‘winter warmer’ put forward. I know it was good because despite my best efforts I’d drunk the lot before finishing the rate.

bierkoning (10157) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2003
Dark amber color. Aroma and flavor of caramel, butter, hops and licorice. Some pear and blackcurrant fruitiness. Medium bodied.
