Vinter is said to be a crossover between a Strong American Amber and an Old Ale. It features generous amounts of Perle, Citra and Cascade, making it more hoppy than the beer traditionally brewed before Christmas in Norway. The beer pairs well with heavier meat dishes, casseroles and traditional Christmas food. It is also excellent enjoyed on its own, ideally in front of the fireplace on a cold winters night.

Editor’s note: Vinter was first brewed on contract in the fall of 2013 at Lervig Aktiebryggeri in Stavanger, but moved to 7 Fjell when the brewery was up and running.

33cl bottle from AbeerVinum, Rimini, Italy. Pours dark red/brown, almost black, with fluffy high foam, whitish and medium grained. Aroma is coffee and liquor, chestnuts. Body is dense and sticky, with limited carbonation. Taste has good sweetness and moderate bitterness, for a full flavor. Finish is relatively long and sweet.

Fin (11070) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle from Eataly, Genoa, Italy (I think?) consumed at home after tidy up Sunday at the end of Merton Beer Festival, Oxon, Sunday 26th February 2017 Reddy amber appearance a little bit murky. Quite a toffee forward beer, chewy, malty but yes lots of toffee. Pretty good the hoppiness breaches the big malty body, it’s not bad. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

@ Eddan 16-12-3: Blommig doft och smak på gränsen till tvålig. Rätt söt med toner av honung och cognac.

gyllenbock (10035) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2016
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Bergen, bought in September 2016. Dark brownish/amber with a large head. Aroma and taste of bread, caramel, some light soap and hints of coffee. The body was medium as was the bitterness.

fombe89 (4243) - Asturias, SPAIN - OCT 15, 2016
Botella de @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo 14/10/2016. Color marron oscuro, sabor caramelo, dulce, notas lupulo, rica.

kaserov (1111) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2016 Color marrón oscuro, turbio, sin apenas capa de espuma (por mucho que te esfuerces no va a durar). Carbonatación mínima. Aroma muy complejo: a malta tostada, café, chocolate; se nota también el lúpulo. El sabor contiene lo mismo que el aroma: malta tostada, algo de chocolate, lúpulo y un final de café increíble. ¿Pegas? Solo dos (y muy mínimas): falta de amargor (creo que hubiera ganado un plus con un final amargo); falta de carbonatación (apenas tiene y un poquito de gas hubiera producido un efecto más interesante en el paladar). Como digo, pegas mínimas. Es un cervezón. Toda una sorpresa. La sonrisa de niñato que me ha pintado en la cara nada más olerla no me la quita nadie hoy.

AnG_BrgNor (819) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2016
veldig kompleks aroma. Karamell, malt, noe "skog" og lyng og noe frukt. Smaken er ganske lik, men med en frisk smak det er vanskelig å beskrive. En positiv overraskelse.

Bottle from Polet Akers Bryge Oslo cons 2016-06-03 Göteborg AR: strong roasted malt, spiciness AP: dark brown, frothy beige head F: rich carbonation, roasted malt, spices, sweet mouth feeling, wee yeasty, warming and rough, wee grainy, long and lasting
