saxo (14243) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2006
Bottled. Chestnut red low head and condition. Fruity raisin nose with a roast barley hint. Fruitcake and toast in the mouth and a swet malty finish. Doesnt seem as strong as the abv suggests.

yngwie (14159) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2008
Bottle. A copper body, clear, with a decent beige head. Roasted, sweetish nose with dried fruits and caramel. Full-bodied and a bit sticky mouthfeel with flavors of roasted malt, dried fruits and dark sugars. Roasted bitterness. Pleasant finish with dried fruits, sugar and roasted bitterness. A really pleasant one, possibly deserving a higher score. (080905)

harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2005
Bottle. I am with imdownthepub on this beer. Mahogany colour with a cream head. Dark fruits and malt on nose (black cherry) good malty flavours with some chocolate but mostly caramel and nice hop to balance. Not too sweet for a beer of this strength and very nice indeed

Kind of thin; fruity, dark malt, and a touch of earthiness. A disappointment
