A: Pours a murky deep copper in color with a light to moderate amount of active visible carbonation slowly rising from the bottom of the glass and some amber highlights. The beer has a three finger tall foamy sudsy light tan head that slowly reduces to a medium thick half finger thick cap surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of toasted malts with moderate amounts of caramel and toffee sweetness. That is followed by some lighter notes of brown sugar, spices/herbs, and earthy hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of toasted malts with a light amount of caramel and toffee sweetness. Very light touches of cocoa powder flavors and light flavors of brown sugar + herbs. Light amounts of earthy hops that contribute a light amount of bitterness which fades slowly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy.

O: I found this beer to be enjoyable though I can see the flavor profile not appealing to the larger American audience... there is something that reminds me of food from the Nordics in this brew (kind of like pickled or creamed herring does not appeal to Americans).

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a fine three finger ivory head that continues building due to very active carbonation. Aroma of caramel malt, grassy hops, spicy and slightly earthy. Flavor is biscuit and caramel malt, lightly toasty, earthy spices, mild dark dried fruit, very light cinnamon and clove. Slightly oxidized. Medium bodied with nice peppery carbonation. An interesting winter ale that leans in profile to a brown ale, but a mild one, with spicing that leans to a muddled earthiness rather than baked goods. Odd and interesting; appropriate for the season.

500ml bottle. Pours a dark cloudy brown with a huge long lasting creamy tan head. Very good head retention and lacing through out. Aroma of dark roasted caramel malt, dark fruit, espresso and cacao esters fill the senses. Taste is roasted dark caramel malt, espresso beans and cacao, a bit of dark fruit with some mild bitterness. Palate is a full body, creamy texture with mild carbonation. Finish is of roasted dark caramel malt, yeast, espresso beans and cacao, some dark fruity notes ending has some mils bitterness with some lingering roasted espresso flavor. Overall a very good, flavorful and enjoyable brew, nice.
