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.

From 500ml bottle. Strong sweet chocolate scent. Taste is roast caramel and slightly bitter. Not bad. Not impressive.

Kolsvart med litet ljusbrunt skum! Doftar sött av malt och lite kaffe. Smaken är söt lite jästig/kryddig och lite kaffe. Ok öl

Johnsense (750) - - FEB 21, 2014
Pours brown with a large offwhite head. Aroma of raisin, nut, treacle, bread. Fairly sweet up front, very subtle holiday spices giving way to dark bread, brown sugar, raisin, tobacco, subtle hopping. Lighter carbonation. Would be a nice beer to have with a smoke.

stefannilssons (1446) - SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2014
Det här var en rätt juste öl, helt obalanserad, men juste. Smaken bar toner av kaffe, choklad och kryddor, kroppen var okej men balansen sken med sin frånvaro.

Helt OK. Smaken lite kraftigare än aromen. Rostade toner maltig. Viss syrlighet.

Hallstein (110) - Skogn, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2014
Malty aroma with notes of dark fruits, raisins, brown sugar, with a dry bready note to it. hop aroma is herbal and typical english. Flavor that has a clear malty aroma, not too roasty and well balanced. This is a very good ale. I’d buy it again, at winter ;)

Couleur brune-rouge avec un beau col. Nez de caramel et de grain grillés. En bouche c’est très bon, Caramel,chocolat,café grains grillés. Une bonne bière mais qui ne révolutionne rien!

sudomorph (487) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2014
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a dark chestnut with a tan, one-finger head that thins to a film. Very slight lacing. Aroma is deep and rich. Roasted notes with some smoke, chocolate, dark fruits, toffee, caramel, and coffee. Taste starts out a touch roasted then develops a bitter/sweetness then moves to a fruity, roasted, slightly tart aftertaste. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Clean and smooth in the mouth with a soft carbonation. Slight alcohol warmth but nearly no taste of alcohol. Overall a really nice seasonal brew. Not a huge winter warmer but tasty none the less.

NordicV (1082) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2014
Mörkbrun öl med beige skum. Doft av rostad malt, mörka bär sam en aning choklad och kryddor. Bra balans mellan sötma, rostade toner och beska.

Dark, black only minimal ruby reflex. Medium and diminishing beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasty malts and coffee. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Some ashy notes in the finish. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Quite good.
