UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 Rød-brun øl fået som fad på Den Tatoverede Enke. + flaske hjemme. Sødlig karamelsmag med tilpas bitterhed. Varm og godt humlet. Belgisk gær brugt uden at det virker gennemtrængende. Alohol ikke dominerende. God øl.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2006
Bottle. Poured no head, but this could have been my fault. Otherwise a lovely deep ruby with some floating sediment. Smells like dirty socks. The flavour improves on this, but is still a little sharp and a little soupy with an astringent finish. Complex, but on balance not really worth it.

[33 cl bottle, Poggio] Deep red, slightly opaque body. Good off-white head. Licorice, caramel and roasted grain in the nose. Taste is fruity and sweet, with raisins and nuts. Dry, slightly yeasty finish. Medium bodied. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice.

Sofajoern (146) - DENMARK - JAN 11, 2006
Sweet yeast/malt aroma with notes of dried spice. Clear red/brown with a huge, lasting head, that left lots of lace. Very full, roasted malts, raisins, prunes and hints of nuts in the aftertaste. Easily drinkable and I love the stories about Charles Quint adt the mug :)
