3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep brown with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly musty w/ some slight notes of roasted nuts. Flavor is nice and nutty with roasted malt. Finish has some toffee notes with a surprisingly clean aftertaste. Overall, extremely solid winter beer.
Kinda dry. Kind of boring, nothing special........................................... higgsbison (261) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2017
Very different. Strong spice notes but I have no idea what spices they used. Interesting and drinkable. I liked it very much. I need to get more

A DLC. Ambree presque rouge petite mousse tenue moyenne et carbo nulle. Ar�me d'alcool et de fruits exotiques
En bouche sur le caramel, l'alcool et une pointe de houblons. Un peu dans le style barley wine mais plus l�g�re. Pas mal mais pas dans le style attendus : trop vieille ? akranger (2) - - JUL 9, 2017 does not count
Nauseating sweet syrup, turns the stomach. Bought six pack at the brewery store, never finished even two cans. It’s truly awful, avoid it.

W aromacie dużo karmelu, ziemistości, słodkich nut miodowych. Tak samo w smaku, karmel, ziemia, miód. Nuda, panie.

Treated as an English strong ale, as I believe that’s what the brewer intended, this was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was an amber/brown color with a one finger white foamy head that faded quickly. Sly lace.
The aroma had some caramel/toffee malt up front. Slight tobacco, and then some sweet pomme-like fruits to glisten the underneath. Finishes with some raisins.
The flavor leads with the sweetness through the blend of the prior mentioned aromas. Malty and fruity aftertaste with a finish that seems to add a touch of vanilla.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. ABV felt good for the style and what the brewer intended.
Overall, I don’t see this as a spice/herb/vegetable beer. Just like the brewer says, this is closer to an English strong ale and worthy of having again. jsnicholas (664) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Tap ($6/pint). Amber/brown.One finger head that faded quickly. This beer was very fruity. I like the fruitiness of some hops, but this was almost like a cider which I am not a fan of. Also quite sweet. madnorwegian (245) - FRANCE - FEB 10, 2017
Not a fan. One dimensional. Just sicky sweet malt. Barely any head. Don’t know how this beer is in the 85th percentile. Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2017
This beer has a nice spicy sweetness to it that reminds me of a cider. It’s not so sweet that it loses its beer taste, but it’s got notes closer to honey than I usually find in a winter ale. roldano (152) - - JAN 18, 2017
Espuma color crema que permanece, color ámbar, apreciándose el brotar constante de finas burbujas, aroma dulce en nariz, el sabor es fresco y dulce en inicio con notas especiadas y regusto permanente.
