YoB: #5

Meantime Winter Time Winter Warmer, 5.4% 500ml.

Very enjoyable dark ale. Surprisingly stouty and with a good lingering finish.

Label design disappointing - you can usually rely on Meantime for understated and reasonably elegant labels thankfully devoid of "ye olde" claptrap.

That's a lovely beer, that.

Doesn't it have some exhortation to go and kick leaves around on the label? Great beer though - nice understated use of smoked malt.

I had a bottle on Christmas Day. I don't remember too much, other than it was one of the blander beers I tried (we were working our way through my Christmas present from Livingbeer.com)
