Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2008
Aroma of toffee, cola maybe, carbonation and some sweetish alcohol. Quite a bit roasty on entry, mellowing out into full caramely malts.

l1br4r14n (451) - Rancho Cucamonga, California, USA - APR 28, 2009
Weak aroma of dark malt. Color is a clear dark brown with ruby highlights, and a two-finger khaki head that quickly dissipates. Smooth malty flavor with dark fruits pulling through in the finish and a sweet aftertaste. Low carbonation and kind of watery. Nice.

timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Poured dark brown, smelled of roasted malts. Roasted malt and nut in the mouth with semi-sweet chocolate/toffee. Good mouthfeel with enough carbonation, but a bit thin. Not too bitter like some English strong ales I’ve had.

garmonbozia (429) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Once again, this is a new style to me and I have to say that I really enjoyed this beer. Poured a beautiful dark brown with a thick creamy head. This beer had so much malt and caramel to ot. Very low carbination and lacing was nice also. I did detect some rasin or fig hints to it too. I thought it was a great beer, but a stong ale? hmmmm I donít think so, maybe Iím wrong.
