omhper (19325) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2007
Bottled at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Mahogany colour, rich firm head. Caramelly aroma with lots of red wine. Sweet and caramellym, fruity with some cinnamon. Full bodied and very rich in flavour, also intensely sweet. I really like the flavour of full bodied red wine. Finishes with spun sugar sweetness. Really good to be a macro.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2007
There is a nice and lasting head on this dark brown beer. The flavour has notes of malt, hops, plum and spice. The mouthfeel is rather oily and the alcohol gives a warm feeling. The flavour is sweet with notes of port wine, candy sugar, dark fruits and alcohol. The sweetness is rather heavy in the finish. It’s the best of the three Cinay’s I have tasted.

(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Stockholm) Dark brown, mahogany colour with pale brown head. Malty nose with spicy notes of chocolate, gingerbread cake and dark fruit (raisins, prunes). Full, malty taste with dried fruit (raisins, prunes) and herbs. Rather sweet with vinous notes (Madeira?) in the finish. Firm body with smooth mouthfeel. Chewy and very tasty beer.

yngwie (13389) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled. Clear, well-sparkling, dark reddish brown, with a large, dense, beige head that lasts. Lots of blackcurrant in the aroma, along with brown sugar, dried fruits and some cellar. Sweet flavor with berries, dried fruits, some yeast, spices and sugar. Medium to full body, and a finish with sugar, alcohol and spices. Nice one! (060807)
