tkrjukoff (4058) - SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours clear amber with a small off white head. Aroma is malty bready a bit sweet hoppy and slightly fruity. Flavor is too sweet, too boozy, nice touch of smoke, maltyness and bitterness. Not in my alley. They should be able to do better than this.

Ktwse (2002) - SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2012
Pours clear orange with a fairly big white head that drops quickly. Aroma is very sweet with lots of alcohol present. Caramel, toffee, butterscotch, dates. Not a lot of hops in there. Taste is very sweet up front with a funky off-taste. The alcohol is really too strong, as I feel has been the case with several in the AB series. Finish is quite long with a strong pungent bitterness balancing up all the alcohol sweetness. Not a lot of carbonation and quite full bodied. Very warming, but not my favorite in the series. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

375ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Dry, stale coffee aroma, but without any of the fullness of actual coffee. Smooth sweet body. Again, a thin coffee in teh taste. Thin and plasticky. Palate a touch sticky. Does cover the 11.8% well though, it feels about the 8% level. The coffeeness doesn’t sit well in the beer, and the beer itself is a bit messed up. There’s a fine line between genius and stupid.

espenra (873) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2012
37.5cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Wonderful bronze golden colour with a disappointingly small head. Aroma is rather complex with notes of hops, malts, coffee, caramel. Faint hints of alcohol. Alcohol is massive and the first thing that hits the palate. A weird mixture of hops, roasted malts, coffee, caramel. The alcohol has a warming feeling. A massive beer to take on alone despite the small size. Long lingering aftertaste.

Beer4000 (4476) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 6, 2012
375 ml bottle @ Patricks. Clear, dark golden body with a small and fast disappearing off-white head. Aroma has dry fruit, raisins, honey, yeast and alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet malty, dry fruit, honey, caramel and warming alcohol. Full body and strong aftertaste. Somehow nice, and at least interesting. A lot of different flavors here, might not be exactly balanced, the bitterness feels almost a bit harsh and overall the beer is too sweet. Interesting but a bit over the edge for me.
