faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 16, 2007
Bottle. Pours a red-brown colour with a big off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits, spices and roasted malt. Good mothfeel. The flavour is sweet with a roastish maltiness and caramel, dark fruits, some spices and bit of hops. Bit oxidized but still fine.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2007
Bottle vintage 2006. [Courtesy of thewolf, thanks buddy!] Huge beige creamy head that mostly lasted. Excellent lacework. Clear amber color. Aroma of fruit, bread, toffee, spice and what appears to be a light oxidation. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor. Sweet fruity finish.

thewolf (11209) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2007
Vintage 2006
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel. Pours a deep red with a big, creamy off white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is rye bread and a very well-balanced spiciness that is impossible to pin down. Full and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly oxidized, but caramel, spices, toffee and light hops still peep through. Will need to try this fresh.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2007
Mahogany, nice head. The aroma has notes of yeast and fruit. The flavour is initially very sweet and malty but then comes notes of plum, cocktail cherries, nuts and candy sugar along. Not a favourite...

omhper (19809) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Bottled. Hazy mahogany colour, no head. Aroma of roasty malt and strawberry jam. Sweet with solid body and clean mouthfeel. Strawberry jam appears to be the one and only flavour. A straight forward very drinkable beer, where did the 9% go?

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle @ Kerstbierfestival, Essen. Dark brown coloured beer with a large offwhite head. Nose of tobacco, butter, slightly sour. Taste is slightly nutty, but ends in a bad sour way. This bottle was probably infected.
