330 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Nice deep mahogany with a creamy tanned head that leave rich lacing. Slightly tart and nutty aroma with dried dark fruit, caramel, spice and grassy hops. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, mildly carbonated. Vinous taste caramel, clove, orange, fig and dried yellow apricot. Warming finish.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - DEC 6, 2015
Un bel colore ambra carico con riflessi rame. La schiuma crema è abbastanza persistente. Al naso: uvetta, miele e caramello. In bocca un dolce di malto sfocia in un calore alcolico ben presente.

lownote (470) - USA - DEC 2, 2015
Malty and spicy aroma. Darker malts, but not roasty. More like raising and caramel. Really sharp carb. Good malty and yeast flavors. Very dark with a lace of head. Clear in light. Taste has some cherry like stuff. A slight bitter lingers after.

Mortlach (1847) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 1, 2015
On tap @Buskers Pub (Rome). Pours brown/mahogany with a big and persistent off-white head. Aroma of esters, banana, apple, dried fruits, caramel, brown sugar. Flavour is sweet with a fantastic light sourness in the end, drinkable despite the ABV. Medium to high body, medium carbonation. Amazing winter beer!

nybol (1264) - DENMARK - OCT 11, 2015
Den har noter af nødder og karamel, virkelig intens smag, og meget diskret humle der bare giver fornemmelse af bitterhed til sidst.

after4ever (7400) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2015
4.5L. Thanks, J! Happy birthday, man. Pours a murky dark amber with a scant white head. Spicy nose, a bit sweet. Caramel and cardboard, finishes with a big phenolic rush like a stack of brand new flip flops.

bratschepeter (40) - Abilene, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2015
On tap at Barley Hoppers (Abilene, TX). A clear dark amber color with a thick white Pilsner-ish head that dissipates very slowly and leaves plenty of lacing. Faint aroma of sweet malt and a little yeasty funk. Taste is malt with a hint of bittering hops, almost no aftertaste - very smooth, not a trace of booziness for such a big beer. Tasty.

degbert (1616) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle. Pours an almost opaque brown-orange-gold with a high, creamy, mixed-grain cinnamon-brown head. Nose is orange, dried fruit, tawny port, wheat bread, yeast, turbinado sugar, maple, and molasses. Sweet up front with a strong tea bitterness, then with a big boozy streak; dark rum laced with hops bitterness. Lots of roasty flavor on the back of the palate. Warm spicy citrus notes in the nose as I drink. Finish is long, boozy, aromatic, and warm. Complex. Quite good.

mikeyo1 (607) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle @ home. Deep red color and a huge creamy head with lacing on the glass. Dry and sweet with honey, figs, milk chocolate, bread, malt, caramel. Light body for the strength and somewhat boozy in taste but not on the nose. Aftertaste is dry with orange zest, herbs and raisins and figs.

Lilja (2574) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2015
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, brunt socker, jäst, örter, vita russin med toner av torkad frukt och honung. Lagom sötma, lätt kropp, lite spritkänsla, runda smaker, beska med smak av apelsinskal och russin.
