SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Draught at Max’s. Deep red-brown with an off-white head. Fruity, vinous, raisin, caramel, and sweet brown sugar aroma. Sweet flavor with dried fruit, plum, and lots of fat malt. Just enough light bitterness to check the sweetness, and a clean finish. Very smooth, full body. Alcohol is barely detectable. Just a really smooth, malty, fruity beer. I had never heard of this brewery before seeing this and the reale extra on the tap list, but I’m quite impressed.

(draft) Medium tan head atop dark brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, apple cider, raisin, caramel, light alcohol astringency. Taste is moderately sweet, raisin/prune, caramel, some alcohol, light spice. Smooth medium body, but a little too boozy.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2008
(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Stockholm) Reddish brown colour with brief, beige head. Malty nose with notes of dried fruit, wild berries, caramel, fudge and spices (nutmeg?). Malty taste with dried fruit, chocolate, caramel and spices. Slightly toasty. Moderate bitterness. Medium body, slightly sweet, with alcohol well hidden. Wouldn’t suffer from a little depth, but still a nice beer.

thebeertourist (4774) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2006
75 cl bottle. Cloudy orangey brown with a huge yellowish head. Very fruity aroma, promising berries and deep down also a hint of chocolate. Good berry flavours with dry chocolate. Good bitterness and tartness- dry mouthfeel. Full-bodied with good carbonation. A great Italian beer for the Christmas celebration.
