Not bad, but there are better Winter Warmers out there. Apperance was nice, poured a reddish brown with a figer or so of foam. The head lasted for some time. Looked tasty Aroma, ale yeast was present, along with some fruit, cherry and current. Initially the taste is fruity with the cherry and current flavors coming through, a nice balanced hop flavor is clear throughout the taste (I would assume Northern Brewer or Bullion hops). The balance of the initial flavors is overshawdowed on the back in by strong ale yeast flavors. Mouthfeel is normal, and the drinkability is somewhat lower than expected. Avery Old Jubilation is a very similar beer in flavor, but much better in my opinion.

December 2016 - Bottle share at Leightons. Thanks Fergus! As Flying Dog K-9. Dark amber orange, translucent with a foamy tan head. Aroma is very weird burnt pizza, seared tomatoes, tomato crisps, spiced breadstick, cheesestick, cardboard. An interesting sniff experience. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is earthy, dark chocolate and soil, quite dry into the finish. Points for being interesting! (3.0)

Decent winter sipper. Strong malty flavour with dried fruit, cherries and some spice - cinnamon. Fair backbone of hoppy bitterness but thats underplayed. Not bad at all.

On tap at Hopaholic Budapest. Dark ruby. Caramel and cherry aroma. Nice bubbily English ale. I like English pub ales and nothing beats the real thing but this is a nice one. Worth sippin in the winter.

Almogabar (15) - MARIA DE HUERVA (ZARAGOZA), SPAIN - JAN 11, 2017
Botella de 33 cl comprada en Liquidos (Zaragoza). Color Aroma no muy pronunciado, presencia de especias y levadura. Color caramelo muy oscuro, apenas espuma. Sabor marcado, fuerte, demasiada presencia de alcohol. Notas de caramelo y vainilla. No est logrado el equilibrio en esta cerveza de invierno.

kaserov (414) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 9, 2017
Color caoba, medianamente turbio, con capa de espuma marrn de dos dedos de grosor (buena retencin). Carbonatacin media. Aroma a cacao, frutos secos (nuez, avellana), vainilla, canela?. El sabor sigue al aroma, con un toque picoso final debido al cardamomo (no es picante realmente, es una sensacin). Textura acuosa (hubiera preferido algo ms de cuerpo y/o cremosidad). Muy rica.

R4N5H (976) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2017
33cl bottle from Whole Foods, Piccadilly Circus and poured into a snifter on 31-Dec-2016. Chocolate brown in colour with a healthy sized fluffy beige coloured head. Aroma of cocoa, malt and spices. Medium body and soft carbonation. Taste of chocolate malt, vanilla and cinnamon. Light bitterness, with a creamy mouthfeel and a bittersweet finish. Not bad for a seasonal.

Piana średnio oczkowa, szybko opada do firanki. Barwa ciemno brązowa, klarowna. W aromacie jak najbardziej wyczuwalne dodatki, zwłaszcza kardamon wybija się na tle karmelowej podstawy, poza tym trochę orzeszkw coli, toffi... W smaku płsłodkie, karmelowe, mocno kardamonowe, gdzieś w tle odrobina kakao (czy bardziej mlecznej czekolady) i wanilii. Ziołowa goryczka, wysoka, długa i zalegająca, do tego szorstka faktura ze średnim do niskiego wysyceniem nie sprzyjają pijalności. Rozgrzewający alkohol.
Nie jestem zwolennikiem kardamonu a tu jest on dominantem w zapachu jak i w smaku. Dodatkowo zbyt długa i toporna goryczka...
