3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper red body, tan big head, fine crocheted lacing.
Aroma; mild caramellic resin, sweet citrus peels, tart, caramel malts, dusty floral hops, spices, hints of dough.
Taste; sweet resin, hops, herbal resiny malts, hazelnut, walnuts, prune peels, moving towards a good balance with roasted malts and nutty and hopsy stuff in finish.
Feels nice, ok body and nice carbonation. Clean and good. Probably you’ll need two of this, one for after dinner or with desserts and nuts, and then one for evening sipper. This ale has some porter qualities included. Good and clean brew.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml brown 2014 years vintage bottle, with the brewers signature shaped label picturing a bulldog, poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is clear dark mahogany with a medium sized frothy head, that reduced quickly, leaving some lacing. Aroma of pine, orange peels and caramel. Flavours of orange peels, lemon zest, caramel and roasted malts. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, slightly oily texture and average carbonation. Gotlands Sleepy Bulldog Winter Ale is a tasty and more hopped beer than I expected.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It’s an almost clear one, amber to brown in color and with a finger-thick beige head on top. The aroma has caramel, citrus peel and pine cones, the hops doing the largest percentage of the work. It’s bitter and citrusy on the palate, with a light caramel maltyness. Full body, pleasant carbonation. The finish is bitter and fruity, with malts in the back. A beer that lacks a bit on complexity, but it’s sure a decent one anyway. 140207

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a deep coppery amber body with a small white head. Nose is wet grass, caraway-ish herbal tones, caramel and hints of straw and white pepper. Taste is caramel, sweet bready malts, straw, mild strawberries, biscuits and hints of wet grass. Medium body and carbonation. OK, but not very impressive.
