lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle from the Systembolaget in Umeå. This is the sort of beer I miss living over here in Sweden - a thoroughly drinkable strong(ish) ale with bags of character. Pours a dark mahogony brown with aromas of rich black berries and a hint of coffee and smoke. Thick and rather flat mouthfeel and medium sweet middle. A smooth and balanced beer.

Cask at Kingston Arms, Cambridge. Weak taste especially considering the ABV. Slightly sweet, average bitter... Rated by BrewTom

Light amber color, medium head with some lace. Aroma is slightly butterscotch, with some mild dark fruit (raisins) and other esters. Body is thin, flavor has some more light golden raisin upfront, but backed by sweet malts and some faint hops. Tail is fast, leading to some lingering sweetness and fruit.

treadyroc (149) - St. Leonard, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Pours a dark, coppery brown with a very nice, frothy head that diminishes quickly, but not entirely. The taste is malty, but doesn’t finish entirely clean. Very smooth, though, & enjoyable.

outerupt (133) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2006
Pint bottle. The beer pours a rich mahogany brown with a decentlly structured beige head. There are notes of leather, toasted oak, pumpernickel bread, and stewed cherries. Any hint of sweetness is well intigrated with a solid backbone of darker malt and a slightly charry character. A lovely beer for the style.

Aroma of dark fruits and caramel malt. Flavor of caramel- and chocolate malt. It also has quite a sweet finish.

Bottle, nice dark beer, you can definetly smell the fruit and sweetness of this beer. it is a little bit bitter for me, not like hop bitter but something else, not quit sure. Overall pretty good, but it is not as smooth as i would like.
