Bottle to pint glass. Pours a dark amber with light tan head and chunks of stuff settled to the bottom. The aroma is great, tart malt smell. The taste is acrid and bitter, but sweet at the same time. Different.

gwillrich (151) - São José dos Campos, BRAZIL - SEP 9, 2014
Aromas de caramelo, mel, açúcar queimado, toffee e terroso. Cerveja de muito corpo, aveludada, que causa uma sensação de boca bastante complexa. Teor alcoólico elevado, que gera sensação de aquecimento. É uma cerveja densa, que exige harmonização com comida.

Another go at the most rated and available to me list. Good chewy grain and dark red fruit. Very smooth and almost a little light for the alcohol content. Finish is a little earthy and some fruit again. Pretty nice and surprisingly easy to drink.

langeveld12 (224) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2014
Pours an average frothy off-white head that slowly diminishes. Body is hazy copper, sparkles are visible. Aroma contains moderate malts (cookie, molasses, hay, roasted malts), light hops (orange, lime), light yeasts (leather) and raisin, grape, cola, spices and forest fruits. Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and sweet, followed by sweet and finishing in light acidic going to bitter. Body is medium to full with syrupy texture and soft carbonation. An enjoyable christmas beer. Quite a heavy one, though, clearly a delirium.

(On tap att Bishops Arms Linköping, 2013). Sweet scent of syrup, fruit, malt and oddly enough mustard. Sweet and fruity taste with hints of malt and alcohol.

Light brown w/ thick white head, VERY sweet, malty aroma. Medium mouth, subtle vanilla flavor, little aftertaste. "Quick and done."

the aroma of caramel and wine with shades of dark fruits and garden berries, and toffee... the taste is caramel and malty with notes of apple, dog-rose, brown sugar, plum and passionflower... sweet, dry and warming aftertaste... wonderful ale...
