Delicious winter time brew with plenty of complex flavor, without too heavy of an aftertaste, or lingering alcohol overpowering.

Feeling the seasonality on this, this hearty ale would be best during some long blizzards (alas, consumed in June); raisins, prunes, bread, warming

Cloves and sweet malt on the nose and taste. Wintery feel overall, would be warming in such a season. Somewhat watery for the bold flavour; could benefit from a touch more thickness. Surprised to see the "no spices" part of the description.

12floz can, COD: 10.20.2016, $1.50 and poured into a pint glass. I got a lot of sediment from the pour and little foam. Many particles are held in suspension, and at the bottom of auburn-brown body. Aroma and palate intertwine that is simply characteristic of toffee. It’s pretty good.

alteregoo (1441) - Kalisz, POLAND - MAY 9, 2017
Piana nieduża, szybko opada do firanki. Barwa mocnej herbaty, opalizująca. W zapachu karmel zahaczający o toffi, melasa, orzechy laskowe. W smaku podobnie, dość słodkie, ziołowe, pojawia się także skojarzenie z masłem orzechowym. Goryczka średnia, tytoniowa, niskie wysycenie, lekko oleiste, lekko wyklejające w odbiorze.
Bardzo przyjemny English Strong Ale, dośc klasyczny, zładnie wkomponowanym, lekko rozgrzewającym alkoholem. Wydaje się podobne do Coopers Vintage Ale, bez porównania zaś miażdży popularne Innis & Gunn Original czy Young’s Special London Ale.

Korcz (3372) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 19, 2017
Jakaś dziwna lukrecjowa nuta się plącze. Karmel, melasa, dość dużo ciała. Nieskomplikowane i całkiem przyjemne.

Can. Dark red brown. Thin beige head. Medium bitterness, light to medium sweetness. Medium body. Dry light sticky finish. Aroma and flavour is banana, bread, yeast, caramel, malt, nuts, light chocolate. Lovely!

ordybill (1758) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2017
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a reddish brown color with a small tan colored head. The aroma is almost all malt with some nuttiness. The taste is malt with some molasses and some earthy notes.

3.2
dysenteri (324) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2017
Can. Mahogny red/brown with white head. Aroma of alcohol, cookies, toffe, nuts, earthy, malts. Medium sweet, medium bitter. A bit sticky mouthfeel, a bit too much alcohol feeling
