Bottle at Ørsted Ølbar & Cafe, June 2012. Slightly hazy amber with a small head. The aroma was sweet with alcohol, "päronsoda" (a Swedish soft drink), spices, yeast and some white spirit. Very dry and sweet taste. A strange beer that was bland.

boFNjackson (4098) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured amber with a thin head. Big vanilla on the nose. Very sweet, dark sugars, caramel, buttery creaminess. In the flavors, the vanilla qualities fainted to the back, allowing alcohol heat and yeast spiciness to shine through.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Cool ass bottle cracked by OSCF at the Carolina Crew gathering - thanks, Todd! Roiling copper pour, with an abundant carbonation that quickly produces a thick foamy head. Sticky looking, lots of lacing. Nose is really terrific, and you get a nice combination of the Westy yeast (very modest), strong malts, more hops than you’d expect, and of course the vanilla. The nose made me expect a kick to the teeth in terms of flavor, but it was actually very smooth and well integrated, held together nicely by the unobtrusive vanilla, and with a mellow finish. This would be killer to cellar were it more readily available.

Bullit (3961) - Burgos, SPAIN - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle from Peckhams. Murky light brown colour, thin off-white head. Nose is candy sugar, caramel, fruity, bit of vanilla, spices. Flavour is candy sugar, caramel, fruits, bready and malty. Fairly bitter and slightly sweet finish.
