kaserov (523) - Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 30, 2016
Color marrón, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media. Aroma a caramelo, nueces, frutos secos en general y dark fruits. Sabor que sigue al aroma, algo menos profundo. El aroma es un bombazo y el sabor vuelve a serlo, pero más refinado. Buen dulzor, buen regusto a nueces en la boca. Una gran cerveza de invierno. No la toméis fría.

promontor (142) - HUNGARY - DEC 17, 2016
0.5L bottle from a Spar supermarket (winter ale on winter sale ;-). Reddish brown body, beige head, quite persistent. Nice sweet aroma, caramel, some spices. Foam tastes dry and bitter. Beer is on the bitter side with some caramel and nuts. Mild roasted character detectable. Becomes quite rich and complex in the end, actually. Bitter aftertaste, with traces of some Guinness-like sour and roasted character. Palate is nice, silky, creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Typical "semi-brown" British Ale, from the better ones.

Moebbels (782) - FINLAND - DEC 5, 2016
A clear dark amber beer with a decently lasting thin off-white head. Very sweet nose with caramel, dark bread, syrup and nuts. Taste is quite sweet but has some hoppy bite to balance it out and a spicy cardamom aftertaste. Medium carbonation and rich palate but still easy to drink. Decent sweetish winter neer with a nice maltiness.
