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.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a warm, reddish mahogany with a small, off-white head. Plums and prunes in the aroma - very delicate. Medium body - the alcohol is surprisingly well hidden - it just appears warming. Notes of roasted malt, dried fruit and perhaps some wood. Discreet bitterness. Extremely characterful and flavourful beer. 010806

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2003
Dark amber color, thin head. Roasted malt aroma, light phenol, caramel, light Fernet Branca. Full mouth, dry, roasted malt character; quite malty; very light smokey touch, which boosts this good product. The very good roasted malt characterize the final, lasting really a lot. Would benefit of a better aroma.
