A hazy nut-brown beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with a very light note of hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and quite a lot of hops, combined with light notes of licorice root, leading to a dry slightly spicy hoppy end. joergen (29007) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2006

10th October 2008. GABF. Clear brown beer. Dry palate. A bit over spiced this winter beer and the palate is a bit too dry. Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear orangey brown with a creamy, beige head. Aroma of nuts and roasted malt. Medium body with an underlying malty sweetness. Marked - somewhat raw - bitterness with a very present alcohol. Interesting brew, and very far from what the English categorize as Old Ale. 210606

Dark brown color. Some aroma of caramel. Strong caramel flavor, but smooth enough; caramel finish, sharp. Monodimensional but drinkable. Oakes (18594) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2008 2007: Hazy dark brown. Piney, spicy herbal, chocolatey...nice complex nose. Creamy body with a herbal/minty signature and a nice chocolate note. Malty, but sessionable.mcberko (18593) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
2003: Dark burgundy colour with a rich, frothy, light brown head. Aroma and palate of chocolate, spruce, cinnamon, mint. Creamy body. Well-balanced. Like a spiced old ale. Thanks TTB! 7 4 7 4 14 = 3.6
On tap at Trumpeter Public House, pours a clear amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out Christmas spices, bready malt and a touch of caramel. Flavour is dominated by the Christmas spices, with dry bready malt on the back. Not the most thrilling winter ale - too much spice for my taste. It’s okay. brokensail (16631) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Dark amber pour with a small off-white head. Toasted malt and dark fruit aromas with a light spicy hop character. Lots of bread, a bit of floral hops, and some fruity yeast esters. The taste is a little bit more bitter than expected. Some mild roast, a lot of toast, and plenty of bread. Spicy and floral hop notes on the finish. bhensonb (15629) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Aroma of toffee malt with underlying citrus/pine hop. Very underlying. Color is dark with reddish tones. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. The flavor is malt, and it is accompanied by hop. Mostly dark fruit. Coffee comes around. The malt sweetness does not linger, and then hop bitterness continues. It’s not simple. Sort of hopped coffee thing. Really good.
