Norway has created a very good brew and this one is easy folks. Strong deep color that pours with a lasting dark amber head, strong sweet aroma of caramel, strong flavor of caramel and nut, strong abv of 8.5 that is dangerous if you let it.... the Vikings did this beer very well.

Labeled simply "Winter Ale" for us Americans. 500ml poured into creepy realistic human-esque Satan glass.

Monster foam pour. Dark brown beer, thick+creamy tan head which eventually falls to about a finger. Great retention and some lace left.

Big scent of dark fruits (dates, plums, cherries), molasses, some chocolate and light spices. Kind of a bold dessert/fruitcake vibe.

Taste follows the scent but also delivers a good dosage of roasted malts, borderline charred, as well as some big piny hops with maybe some citrus in there too. Still lots of molasses, chocolate cake, bread, licorice and dark fruits; it's all balanced surprisingly well.

Very hefty mouthfeel similar to a big ol stout, ample carbonation and hop bitterness. Some light alcohol warmth. Moreso than the big+bold flavors, the mouthfeel definitely makes this one a sipper. Extra roasty and dry finish.

Definitely leaning towards the imperial porter/stout side of things, but hits unique areas for a great winter warmer as well. Hoppiness is unexpected but meshes nicely. Seems a bit heavy for 8.5% (the whole 500ml is a bit much solo) but quite enjoyable.

Poured a dark brown/almost black body with two finger, voluminous head, with a roasted, chocolatey smell with minor breadiness and just a touch of hoppy graininess. Medium to thick bodied, has a strong and warming booziness as well as a roasted chocolate malt base with breadiness that brings a chewiness (and syrupy mind you) as well as a roasted sweetness to the beer and a dry finish (java/coffee-esque). The alcohol isn't overpowering but makes it's presence known and there's a touch of figs or raisins (dark fruits). This is a great warming winter beer and I really enjoyed it.
