thewolf (11394) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2007
Bottle, from Hviids Vin & Tobak, Aabenraa. Pours a nice clear amber with a thin film head. Weak hoppy aroma backed up by a bread-like maltyness. Flavour is very well-balanced between a caramel backbone and a good dose of English and American hops. Finishes slightly peppery bitter.

imdownthepub (11197) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2008
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml, aged 2.5yrs. Chestnut with beige head. Big, full, malty bitter with a sweetish malt body, quite winey, full of fleshy fruit flavours. There is a warming alcohol note going on adding some depth to the beer along with a toffee caramel silkiness. It lacks bite on the finish, the aging has hidden any individual hop notes, but all in all a pretty decent beer.

FatPhil (10343) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 14, 2009
500ml bottle (Alko, Helsinki)
Sweet caramel malty aroma. Tingly carbonation. Bananaey taste, but also some sweaty horse-blanket and biting hops. Brown mushrooms too. A bit dead, and leaves me uninspired.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 14, 2008
Botella. Clear Amber-brown colour with a medium quite short lasting off-white head. The aroma is sweet with toasted malt, caramel and some fruits. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet with toasted malt, caramel, hops and some dark fruit. The finish is a bit sweet with toasted malt and a mild bitterness. In Nomine Patris et Fili et Spiritus Sancti

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2007
Copper red with a huge, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of caramel and aroma hops. The mouth feel is rather oily. The flavour is malty with notes of aroma hops, caramel, light sweetness, nuts and the finish has a delicious, almost barley wine like vinousity with a light bitterness. A really nice one.

pivnizub (9167) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2010
Bottle: Clear, copper coloured, bigger, very stable off-white head; moderate to solid sweetish spicy-fruity nose (dried fruits with a touch of cinnamon); dryish moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, quite soft; lemony-orangey aromas in the bitter-sweet dark-malty finish. A goody.....

Rune (9113) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2011
500ml bottle, thanks to Elisabeth for sharing. Clear, copper coloured body. One-finger thick, off-white head. Caramel malts in aroma added by dark leafy hops. Fine blended taste of resinous hops and caramel malts. Nice bitter endnotes. Medium bodied. Likable British bitter (Tromsø, 22.08.2011).
