A pretty ideal winter warmer. You don’t feel that heat until it hits your stomach. Light and smooth. Plenty of hop to counterbalance that sweetness. And some citrus and pine spiciness to cut the caramel flavor.

Unclear - hazy medium amber orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, bread, dusty, caramel, moderate hoppy, grass, hops. Flavor is moderate to light light heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, wheat, caramel - toffee - sweet malt, hops, dusty, grass - pine. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. 
A delicious balanced winter ale checks all the boxes for a brew perfect for long winter nights. Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2017
On tap @ Henrik. Looks warm and nice this. A cloudy deep peach orange, almost a little copper colored one this with a medium sized fading and islandy lacing off-white head. Like the sweet malty caramelly and almost barley wine strong nose. Red berries, concentrated and sticky. Quite pleasant. It tastes pretty good also this. More punch than the abv would suggest. Almost like a blend between a DIPA and a strong amber. It has a nice oily texture in the mouth and it’s about average on the carbonation. Well hopped for sure, but it’s lost more on the toffee caramelly sticky side. Grassy, some bitter marmalade and traces of red apples. Lots of flavor, really warming and quite good. 17.02.2017

16 oz can. Canned on 13/Oct/2015. From beerrepublic.eu.DwarfeD (3513) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2017
Clear mahogany color with a small off-white head.
Sweetness, raisins and malt in the aroma.
The flavor is old hops, some bitterness, dark fruits, raisins and sweet maltiness. If there was some hoppy freshness it’s long gone. They are selling some seriously old beers.
50cl can at Boothill, Amersfoort. Pale dark orange with a medium slightly off-white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice bitterness with subtle fruity tones. Caramel, resin, malts, pine, grass and spices. Very nice hoppy brew. MarcoDL (4957) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2017
Can at boothill. Orange golden pour. Aroma of bitter pine, caramel and malt. Fresh bitter flavor of pine, of grassy citrus, caramel and a nice spicey malty backbone. Like it. Boutip (6380) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle: Poured a dark amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy and resinous hops notes is very enticing. Taste is a complex mix of citrusy and resinous hops notes with some light sweetness from the malt base. Very limited amount of bitterness with good floral notes. Body is fuller then average with good carbonation. Very nice mix between a solid malt backbone and some fresh hops notes. mjik83 (1577) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2016
