Great aroma. A little roastyness, followed by some sweetness and dries off nicely. Gives a little less then I'd like but is still delicious for the winter weather.

Nitro. Brown color with tan head. Aroma is malty, toffee, caramel and fudge, some figs and raisins as well. Taste is toffee, raisins and figs, earthy, quite bitter finish. Super-silky mouthfeel. Very nice English Strong Ale!

Roughly two-month-old bottle. Aromas of dark fruits and toffee. Arrives on the tongue with sweet dark fruits and toffee and finishes with a subtle spice. Bottle suggests a cocoa note, but Im guessing it faded within two months. Finishes with an unpleasant astringent note. Its been four years since the last time I had this, and now I remember why its not a winter seasonal worth seeking out.

SG111 (1655) - New York, USA - JAN 5, 2017
Bottled, pours a dark burgundy cocoa-color, tan head. Aroma is toffee, fig, dark cherries, plum, mostly a sort of sweet Belgian-y dark fruit beer without the Belgian esters. Not much cinnamon or cocoa in the nose. Flavor is fig, plum, cinnamon up front (dissipates very fast), raisin, finish is pretty sharp aspirin astringency that doesnt work at all for this beer and in fact, ruins it. Wow, thats just underwhelming. I thought this was a xmas-spiced beer, its mostly just a dark fruit beer. Not good, definitely wont be revisiting this one. Poor.

Nephilium (1782) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Caramel and spice aroma, pours a clear dark red, with a thin light tan head. Slick mouthfeel, with malt notes and a lot of earthy spice notes. Theres some sweetness in the finish, leaving you wanting more. A very nice winter beer.

355 ml bottle bought at HK Brewcraft in Central.

Looks: Clear, deep ruby redHalf finger head with soapy light beige foam which fades in 30 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing with active slight carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant and sweet rich malt, with strong Bock-ishness, strong red fruit, dried fruits, alcohol, strong caramel, sticky toffee, strong floral, sugar, spices, biscuits, light lemon and grass. Nice!

Taste: Close to light sweet Ale malt, with caramel, toffee, light alcohol, strong liquorices, floral, light molasses, earth, strong spices, dry biscuits, strong lemon, quite strong bitter hops and sharp grass.

Body: Medium body. Quite slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Very solid Ale maltyness in a slick and quite oily background. Very low sweetness which is surprising for a winter warmer. Low booze with strong liquorices, flowery and pretty spicy with herbal edge. Biscuity with strong lemon to round. Quite sharp and neat!

Hoppiness: Dried fruits, strong floral, spices, light lemon and grass in nose. Earth, floral, strong spices, strong lemon, and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is quite strong for a lasting, mid to high astringent herbal malty finish.

After Taste: Dry; Spicy and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: Its pleasant sweet Bockish aroma suggests a liquid fruitcake. The taste reveals a spicy herbal Amber Ale with lean sweetness which reminds me of Leffe Nol. Enjoyable already, but with a bit more sweetness this will be a perfect merry Xmas. Worth trying!

A 355ml bottle with a best before date of 3rd April 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass. It was a very nice clear dark amber colour with big almost three finger tanned head with great retention and left lots of nice lacing. Aromas of caramel malts, toffee and dark berries. Tastes of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasty coffee, toasted bread, raisin and prune sweetness. Medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation. Overall this was ok, but I didnt really get the warming spices that were supposedly there.

Clear brown, with a nice cream head. Aroma is too sweet for me, kind of caramel, candy, molasses, spices. Taste gets better, still very sweet, toffee, candy, fake melon syrup, spices lot of booze taste although its below 7%. Not my cup of tea, hard to sip this.
