A deep ruby red strong ale with an excellent balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. A classic example of a ’winter warmer’; high in alcohol and rich in taste.

BOTTLE 50 CL. Right out of the bottle, you get a string raisin and nutty aroma, but, when poured into a glass, the beer smells very basic, almost lageresque. Fortunately, the hops come in waves. First, you get some black malts and raisins. When it arms up - it blossoms! You get some sweet and tart fruit freshness and some nuts. The taste starts as a dry stout - roast barley and moderate bitter finish. Later, the beer gets milder and the roast goes away. You also get some sweet and sour fruity notes. A hint of alcohol. Nice spicy hop finish.

laakus (70) - Nossebro, - JAN 10, 2015
Black with a lightbrown head. Quite too unbalanced taste in my opinion; lots of sweetness with surprisingly much taste of alcohol hitting through. Some roasty tones.A disappointment for me.

Seffle (320) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle from SB 150109. Deep dark ruby with weak beige head. Heavily roasted coffee and caramelle in the nose with hints of old apples and figs. Very sweet full palate with some port, dried plums and dark chocolate. A very nice sippin' ale on a cold and dark winter evening. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smakt hjemme fra flaske. Skum og farge er ikke det sterkeste med denne ølen, men smaken er veldig bra. Fin balansert smak med hint av mørk sjokolade og karamell.

wihlan (403) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2014
Flaska från systemet - brödig doft. Mörk som en vinter Ale ska vara. Kryddig och brända toner i smaken. Något tunn i kroppen.
