4.3
a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Cask; dark brown, medium white head; aroma is toasted nutty malt; taste is also nutty malt; also bread, backed up with some peppery blackberry hoppiness which lingers in what is quite a bitter finish; it has a soothing gentle sweetness throughout; hints of licquorice, bitter coffee; soft, complex, warming - this is everything you could want from a Winter Warmer.

Cask conditioned handpump Kings Head Leicester 07/03/13. A dark ruby coloured beer with a whitish head and lace. An ashy grainy malty beer. A bit of tart fruit. Not enough body to be a winter warmer. Very grainy but it is interesting.

harrisoni (19338) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2012
