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 (30230) - 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. Travlr (27371) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2017
Bottle. Clear deep amber color, thick tan head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of burnt caramel. Taste is earthy toasted caramel. Warming. Papsoe (25055) - 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. mcberko (20934) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
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.

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.brokensail (16695) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 22, 2012
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
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. djd07 (16677) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours a very dark ruby color with a medium light tan head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a roasted malt with some fruit. Good lacing on the glass. The taste is a very sweet malt with a spicy hop finish. A great ale for the winter.
