Super malty on the nose. Like walking into a mash room. Dark and opaque, with bits floating around. Lightly carbonated, malt character continues on the palate. Finished smooth without much to suggest its ABV. Great by fireside. Paired with a lentil/squash/carrot soup.

Nice and smooth. Taste of sugared plums? and other fruits. Hops, malts, fruits, and spices make this a delightful Christmas ale to drink. If I can find it, I’ll buy it again. Niller (1706) - Hammel, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2013

12 ounce bottle. Says 8.3% ABV. Pours a dark, murky brown with a half inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of malt, brown sugar, hops, citrus, spice and pine. Similar aroma. Has a nice full body with a clean, warming finish. Enjoyable and a good beer to have during the colder months. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 18, 2013

Dark caramel color, medium to heavy mouthfeel. Little to no head. Low carbonation. Malty with a spiced nose and flavor. Lighter in taste, color and mouth, plus more drinkable than Bourbon County Stout. Sipping beer quality. BenDover (230) - Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Pours a dark reddish-brown, half an inch of dense off-white foam. Aroma is yeasty and malty. Taste is sweet and malty, but countered by a moderate amount of hoppy bitterness. Just a hint of a tinny overtone that detracts from the flavor, though. chucklemation (1747) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Has a distinct sweet spice taste (I can’t identify the spice, nutmeg?) that gets better the more you drink. RespertFTW (521) - Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle. Aged very well. Very nice color almost looks like apple cider. Flavors mellowed together. Very subtle and complex. Nice. sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2013
2012 Vintage. Poured a reddish brown with no head. Aroma of alcohol infused berry fruit. Full body, flavour of the aroma, very vinous and sweet.
