Xevious (77) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Found at a local liquor store. Pours a dark red/tan color with a foamy almost fluffy head with some lacing. Smells strongly of roasted caramel and raisin, brown sugar and yeast. Tastes bittersweet with a stronger bitter finish. Has a medium mouthfeel. Overall not bad, but nothing spectacular. Also, this beer is marketed under several different names so look out for them!

JaroMantic (19) - - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours dark brown with minimal head. Aroma is roasted malts with licorice and a hint of raisin. Dark fruits combine perfectly with sweet roasted malts with a slight licorice like spiciness in the background. Palate is soft, smooth, quite full and creamy. Enjoyed it very much.

NikkTwist (2404) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle at Eulogy. Clear very dark copper brown pour. Thin off-white ring that quickly disappeared. Nice clean dark malty peat flavor. Slim aroma (when cold at least). Medium-bodied wee heavy. Blackberry. Celery hearts. Sherry. Plum pudding. Black cherry cordials. Bit too sweet. Not as rich or complex as better wee heavies but still worthwhile.

martin00sr (2132) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2016
Clear brown, light beige head. Aroma has malt and caramel. Sweet flavour. More caramel, hints of dried fruit and ok warming alcohol. Almost too sweet.
