3.08/5 rDev -24.5%
A: dark brown, virtually black; rich medium brown head; gothic webbed, and occasionally sheeted lacing
S: chocolate, roast
T: chocolate, coffee, raspberry, roast, a tinge of metal, bile, something medicinal, light apples
M: medium to full-bodied
O: There are some impressive parts, but they don't measure up to an enjoyable whole. The rich smell and appearance can't make the medicine/bile/metal enjoyable.

Nogne Winter Ale 2013! Poured from a 1 pint .9 fluid oz bottle into a pint glass.
A - 4 - Really dark brown color, but not quite black. Lots of tan head that leaves nice lacing. I like the bomber bottle, more of it to love!
S - 4.25 - Roasty, smokey malts. Little bit of a red wine hint.
T - 4.25 - Roasty, smokey malts. Some hints of dark fruits/red wine too. Coffee/espresso type flavors are present. No real chocolate, vanilla, or creamy flavors that I can pick up, but thats okay.
M - 4.0 - Medium-heavy mouth feel. Smokey bitterness aftertaste, almost like a really nice cigar. Alc completely covered.
O - 4.25 - Good porter. I like to have a porter every once in while between the imperial stouts.

Deep ruby to almost black this ale had a frothy but solid off white head.
The aromas are so interesting year so weird. There's a lot of smokey malts, like a Rauschbier, but it subsides into a dried fruit. The fruit is rather dull in the nose but that means it's not overly sweet.
The flavors almost follow suit as the dried fruit is not sweet, per se, but more in line with a cake or a malt. There is a barley grain and pecan flavor but it drifts off into a smoke or burnt malt flavor. Funny as it may be, I detected a burnt rubber smoking tire like flavor but found it was not off putting but enjoyable...I do love Rauschbiers though.
The feel is very easy, has a moderate carbonation but still a nice thickness and balance.

2012 bottle poured into tulip. Red brown color with lots of off white lacing. Huge cherry and dried fruit aroma...some caramel and almost Belgian style note. Taste is chocolate cherry and dried fruit...some nice spice character. Really fantastic balance or sweet malt and spice/hops. wow..probably one of my favorite warmers. only wish this came in 6-packs.

Dark Cola almost pitch black body wit a dark tan head, fine soft carbonation speckled lacing is left behind. Aroma has dark roasted malts a bit of toffee and cocoa dusted in the air, with an interesting spruce, pine, and light anise character. Flavor has herbal notes more spices with an astringent dark chocolate, herbal tea acidity. Actually quite enjoyable lighter than it sounds medium bodied natural soft carbonation a complex and satisfying winter ale that has aged well.
