Our last drink after three happy drinking days at The National Winter Ales Festival 2013. Half-pint, cask served from bar 3. Dotted sports to the glassware, Coal black body with a deep rustic shade. Aromatic with plums, raisin and dark malts. The taste profile brings spiced mid-sweet malts and dried fruits as well as anise and caramel offset by berries. Malt bitter aftertaste. Fits the season well (Manchester, 25.01.2013). SarkyNorthener (4614) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014

far15. Dark brown black. Malty, light leather, plumes, dark fruits. Med light, dark berry fruity. Malty, light spicy. Light roast.
(Cask at Gallow’s Bird Real Ale Festival ’15) The beer poured deep dark brown and clear. Its head was small and almost white. Aroma had malts, molasses and caramel. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, caramel, hint of liquorice, toasted malts and bitternesss. Aftertaste had caramel, sweetness and bitterness. An excessively sweet brew. Ungstrup (37574) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2009
Cask @ National Winter Ales Festival 2009. An opaque brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has strong notes of spices - especially cardemomme, but also lighter notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of spices - again primarily cardemomme and medium notes of caramel and malt. A bit too spicy for my liking. rauchbierlover (648) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2011

Fleet. This is the very first Winter Ale I had. Not bad, but I expected something better. Dark brown with a small tan head. Caramel, malty aroma. A bit spicy and dry in the end.
