One blizzardy St. Pats in Boston, my friends and I got downtown too late to get into our favorite Guinnessing pubs and retreated to Julie’s place. She had bought this beer for the name and we dutifully, if a little sadly, quafed it, noting the spiciness. Not enough to replce a St. pats Stout, but rich enough to be there to soothe the disappointment.

Pours a clear and deep amber. Aroma of dried fruits and caramel. Taste is malty with a light sweet finish. Not very much of anything, but quite drinkable.

espenra (911) - Kurland, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2008
33cl bottle at Frognerseteren restaurant. It poured a red-brown colour with a small beige head that settled down fast in the glass. The aroma is sweet, tempting and smells of malts, yeast and raisins. The flavour is bittersweet and tastes of coffee and roasted malts. It has a short aftertaste.It is a decent christmas beer, but nothing outstanding.

Boks. Lys klar karamellfarge. Beige skumtopp. Lavt karbonert. Smaker malt, korn, karamell, humle. Noe gress. Helt grei men ikke noe ekstraordinĉrt

Aroma is malty and sweet, with cherries, caramel, oak, dry with a slightly carbonated hint. Ruby red color with a nice off white head that slowly settles, leaving behind some very nice lacing. Flavor has caramel and malts, slightly sweet, and little less exciting than I was lead to expect from the aroma. Still a nice brew.

A friend of mine had a few selections of this beer and generously shared a couple with me. I thought it was an odd combination of a belgian style ale and a bottle of liquified dried fruit (well then it wouldn't be dried fruit anymore would it) maybe reconstituted dried fruit. At any rate, it wasn't too bad, I think it was an old bottle that doesn't age well... poured nicely with a large pink head and a ruby colored body, decent flavor of oak and malts. Hmm, interesting.
