larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2008
Big beige head. Deep dark red translucent body. Sweet malty aroma with earthy toffee and floral hop notes. Dry-sweet roasty earthy malt taste with chocolate notes. Soft, mild mouthfeel, with what feels like mild alcohol burn (at 5.3%?). Dry burnt earthy aftertaste. Very nice! (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Göteborg.)

Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2009
(Bottle) Reddish brown colour with a frothy, beige head. Malty nose with toffee, caramel, chocolate, dark fruit and dark bread. Malty taste with notes of caramel, toffee, chocolate, dark fruit, dark bread and a hint of cold coffee. Slightly bittersweet finish with a medium bitterness. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Not really daring, but a nice and tasty beer. In short: bittersweet caramel toffee.

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2009
50 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Nutty, malty, full taste. A bit fruity. Enough hops to balance this into a very decent beer.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2013
16.9oz bottle, from Dilly Deli, shared with Jstax. Almost entirely hazy red / brown color. Minimal khaki off-white head. Couple dots of lace. Dark fruity aroma. Some lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter. Interesting, kind of roasty, toasty ale. An OK bitter dark ale.

Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Bottle: Poured a woodsy, orange-tinged brown color with a thin, creamy, pock-marked head. The aroma is creamy, yet nutty. This drinks with a malty underbelly, but the upfront character has notes of nuts, dried fruit, and light caramel. The mouthfeel is uniquely creamy, in the British style. Nice session beer.

larsniclas (5522) - Billdal, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2008
Bottled. Copper colour with an off-white head. Quite malty aroma with some toffee and chocolate. Some licorice and tropical fruits in the flavour. Pretty sweet and malty.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Bottle. Pours a mahogany body with an off white head. Fruity with a chewy caramel and plum character. Sweet and chewy with a hint of toffee and some dried fruit. Nice brew.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2001
This wasn’t bad, but yes, lacked a bit of flavour, still quite tasty though, chocolatety, malty, fruity, yeah, it was OK.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Handsome pour, a rich brown body with ruby highlights and a creamy beige head. The aroma is malty with molasses, fresh apple skins, and just a hint of earthy bitterness. A sweet malty drink, caramel mostly, with molasses and fruit and a light nuttiness. Very nicely blended and quite drinkable.
