COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - Winter. Also available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles.
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.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2004
Opaque dark brown w/ creamy, somewhat soapy pale tan head. Sweet, malty aroma of burnt coffee & bitter dark chocolate. Somewhat thick, somewhat creamy feel. Rich, malty flavour of coffee & chocolate gives way to a dry, surprisingly bitter, earthy, spicy, warm finish.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2004
Opaque with reddish tint. Small beige head. Flavor and aroma does exhibit sweet malts. Aroma seems to get more pungent as it warms. Worth trying.

TBone (12323) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2004
Bottled (BB 10/2005)
Dark brown, almost opaque. Small expresso head. Aroma is like Grandma making Redcurrant juice. Nose has malts and barley. Base is a good soft porter, which has some sweet berries and spices with it. Basicly good choclaty and roated brew which just had too much sweet spices.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2004
Best of the bunch that I have tried so far from st. peters. There are caramels, lightly spicy notes as well as a touch of smoked flavour. Very vinous smelling. Definitely a christmas dinner brew. Solid.

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2004
Dark brown color, heavy sweet caramel aroma, heavy roasted malty taste, medium body, roasrted finish.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2004
Dark brown with a small bubbly brown head. Fruity and slightly metallic aroma of oranges, cherries, smoke and dark chocolate. Flavour of chocolate, spices and smoke with a sour undertone that is quite disturbing. Surprisingly thin bodied. Bitter finish of cocoa and oranges.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2004
Brown color with a beige head. The taste is sweet and light fruity with slight spicy notes. Has a light alcohol note in the background.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - OCT 29, 2004
(on bottle) Funny soy/chinese vinegar aroma. A bitter/sweet drink, not that warming feeling, due to the lack of finish. Would be cold drinking this for a winterwarmer.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Dark brown color, opaque with a brown head. Aroma of American oak (warm and boubon-like), brown sugar, and spice. The palate is winey with a solid bitterness and creamy dark caramel malt with licorice and green hop. Body is somewhat thin but the flavor is so intense that it makes up for it. The almost divine balance makes this beer incredibly dangerous for me. Can a beer be too drinkable?

Sweet, malty nose, soy. Dark brown body, small tan head. Malty flavor, with a nice touch of smoke. Tasty.
