Maria (10158) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2007
The color is dark brown and the head is nice, but quickly disappearing, leaving a nice lace. The aroma is hoppy, malty and the mouthfeel is rather smooth and dry. the flavour is sweet and malty, with roasted malt. It has notes of candy sugar, coffee, port wine, dark, ripe fruits and the sweetness is sticky and cloying - far too much. The finish has light citrus, that helps a bit.

FatPhil (9359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 31, 2007
650ml bottle (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Winter Ales 2004) Malty focus in aroma and taste. Mellow, slightly winey, warming. Some spice - anis?

Bouteille(Merci, Monsieur professeur!):Copper coloured, very clear, big rocky off-white head, mild bisquity-fruity nose that is accompanied by a citric touch; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied and pretty soft; sweetish citrussy-bisquity finish. Nothing wrong with - or very good by french standards…
