Hallstein (483) - Skogn, - JAN 21, 2014
Malty aroma with notes of dark fruits, raisins, brown sugar, with a dry bready note to it. hop aroma is herbal and typical english. Flavor that has a clear malty aroma, not too roasty and well balanced. This is a very good ale. Id buy it again, at winter ;)

From elcervecero. In Ikeas pint glass. Playing Blackwell Legacy. Complex, with smokey and coffee notes and still very drinkable. Not what I expected in a winter beer but still great. Much better than the St Peters brews Ive bought in ECI: because the recipe or because the conservation?

Mrkt rdbrun med ljusbrunt skum. I doften finns choklad, torkade fikon och dadlar. Maltig smak med choklad och torkade fikon och dadlar, en liten fin kryddighet och som avslutning en liten fin beska. En riktigt god och klassisk jull.

Pours cola with a tidy tan lacing. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and dried fruits; faintly woody. Tastes sweet, malty with dark fruits, coffee bitterness and a hint of spice. Full body with soft carbonation. Really nice balance overall between the sweet and bitter, very satisfying mouthfeel.

lesifflebiere (1747) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
De couleur cola rougeoyant, cette bire aux relents vaguement "stout", du moins trs malts, est mi-paisse et prsente une basse carbonatation. Nez de grains de crales rties, de bois, un peu de fruits confits. La bouche est ronde et bien malte, avec quand mme une prsence bien marque et efficace des houblons, des saveurs de caf, chocolat au lait, et de cassonnade. Cette hivernale est rconfortante et savoureuse, et si lon aurait aim une version un brin pice et plus chaleureuse en alcool, il en reste nanmoins une excellente boisson.

Bottle from local bottle shop. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, caramel, dark fruits, touch of dark chocolate and liquorice. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Pretty nice, did not expect such a tasty coffee flavour.

Hieman punertavanvivahteinen musta olut beigell, aika nopeasti hvivll vaahdolla. Tuoksu varsin mieto, maltainen ja hieman pistv humalointia havaittavissa. Ei kovin erikoinen. Maku jatkaa tuoksun linjalla ja on selv pettymys. Pistvyytt ja hieman mausteisuutta sek jlkimaussa maltaista makeutta. Suutuntuma maksimissaan keskitytelinen, tuntuu turhan ohuelta. Ongelma lienee se, ett olut tuli otettua 10 asteen silytyslmptilasta vasta juuri ennen nauttimista. Tm pitisi ilmeisesti maistella huoneenlmpisen... Ja kyll, aukeaahan tm lmmetessn selvsti paremmin.
