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.

Exceptionally dark brown; almost black. A minute head reluctantly develops on the pour and quickly evaporates. The nose is thick with molasses and pumpernickel, and the molasses note carries through on the flavour as well. Heavy alcohol – you can tell this is a strong beer without reading the label. There’s also a well-disciplined burnt-wood quality to this beer, especially on the long finish. Middle-of-the-pack as far as winter beers go.

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2005
(Bottled) Very dark brown with a small, beige head. Spicy-herby-licorice-caramely-malty aroma. Big, roasted-malty flavor with licorice and herbs. Quite full-bodied, warming, slicky and low-carbonated palate. Sticky finish. Well hidden ABV. An enjoyable, warming and tasty winter brew.

pintbypint (3074) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2005
500ml green bottle. Poured very dark brown, chestnut highlights. Thin tan head was a bit disappointing. Dark sweet malt in the aroma, trace of molasses. In the mouth sweetish flavours of brown sugar and roasted malt, traces of dark chocolate and a little caramel. Has a small roasted bite in the finish. Alcohol remians well hidden.
