COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal - Winter.
Still deep in the grip of Winter this sumptuous warming beer is sufficiently well hopped to provide balance, which can come in handy when there’s black ice around!

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2008
Cask at the Newshouse, Nottingham. This mild has a wonderful richness of character, with lots of fruity and roasted malt as expected; however, there’s more going on here than just that. The barman at the pub described it not as a mild but as a porter, and it definitely has the best qualities of that style as well. Very good.

Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2008
Cask at The White Horse Parsons Green 4 Feb 08. Dark mahogany brown colored. A tiny disappearing head. Yummy aroma of fruit and candy. A bit disappointing paperish flavor. Dry fruity flavor.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2008
Cask at GBBF 2007. A deep red - almost brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and malt, and so is the flavor, leading to a slightly bitter finish.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2007
Cask at The Briar Rose, Birmingham. Dark ruby-brown with an of-white short head. Sugar and roasted malts in the scent. Slight bitterness, a dry end, moderately hopped and slightly nutty with some flowers also present. A bit watery at the end, but good.

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2007
Very dark ruby beer with a medium sized, lasting off-white head. Malt, bread and toffee in the aroma, and a note of Munich malt. Rich and malty flavour with a bitter finish

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
Excellent off-white foam covers the dark brown body and stays there until the end. The nose is hugely grainy, but with dark grains like pumpernickel rather than plain pale ones. This is followed by a caramel earthiness that work quite well with the pumpernickel, but the finish appears roughly sweet and begs for more than these timid earthy hops. Medium bodied, fair carbonation.

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2007
Cask (Peterborough BF 2007) Almost black. Fairly hoppy aroma. Alas it’s tinned veg. Once tasted, the veg aroma breaks thru’. Obviously a nice beer trying to break out. Alas, it’s failing. Didn’t finish it :-( Must rerate if possible.

fonefan (34188) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2007
Cask @ GBBF 2007, London. Dark black color with a average, frothy, good lacing, fully lasting, light brown head. Aroma is moderate malty, dark roasted, dark berries, moderate hoppy, orange, citrus. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. ;o))

Cask@GBBF2007. Dark ruby red colour, mediumsized beige creamy head. Aroma is sweet fruits and berries. Flavour is sweet nectary wood along with some caramel. Leaves a long and dry aftertaste of wood.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 14, 2007
Cask, GBBF 2007. Very dark brown, thick tan head. Malty with roasted tints, some hoppy fruit to end the sniff. Mouth is malty roasted and some refreshing berry fruit. Quite nice
