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 (4133) - 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.

ClubGonzo (4023) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 13, 2012
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew’s Epic Abstrakt/Blåbær tasting, feat. special guests Foffern and StoreMy. :-) January 2010 is bottling date. The first one in the Abstrakt series pours a light nougat hazy body with plenty of tiny sediments and a tiny off-white head. Caramel, candy sugars, almonds and hints of vanilla and nougat. Taste is burnt sugar, caramel, alcohol, candy sugars and hints of nuts and some dryness reminding me of birch wood. Slightly thin, dry and alcoholic palate with a boozy finish and slightly too low carbonation. Not totally convinced. Could it be the age? Maybe not, but still. Hm.
