Bottle from Ölbutikken.
Dark brown with a medium head. This reminded quite a lot of a Brown Ale. Malt, sweet and with some roasted notes. Also nuts, brown sugar and some spices. Not the most balanced of beers but ok.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Ruby red to brown volour with a creamy beige head. Smells malts, iron and some syruppy sweetness. Tastes quite sweet, coffee, mocca, dark chocolate, caramel. Very rich flavour. Slightly roasty also, but different than a stout. Also a bit like a quadrupel. Full body, soft carbo.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown body, bubbly beige head. Spices, sugary brioche, toffee, sweet sticky fermented fruit and rum. Mix between a bitter base, cookies and rum barrel. Foamy mouthfeel. Very sweet, but I don’t mind. Very Belgian. But sticky, but more hops than the usual quad. Like. (50cl bottle, reasonably priced)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew and OleR. Pours a near clear nutty-brown body with a small sidesticking bubbly head. Aroma is really sweet with caramel and heavy ripe banana. Also some hints of pure alcohol. Average carbonation, medium-bodied and it has a sticky and syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor-wise this is really sweet with enormous amounts of banana - a bit to much perhaps? -, some plums and almost no bitterness. Like drinking fermented liquid banana-concentrate topped with caramel, brown sugar and ripe strawberries. Nice warming aftertaste. All that being said, it was not any bad flavors but one glass is enough..

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong, fruity flavor has hints of malt, yeast and horehound, and is quite sweet, maybe a bit too sweet. It pours a clear Coca-cola brown with an average light tan head. Flavor fills the mouth, being almost candy-like, having fruity, horehound, malty and caramel notes - tasty, but a bit sweet for a beer. Smooth, firm-bodied texture has a good amount of fizz. Overall, very drinkable if a bit on the sweet side.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a small head that goes away fairly bit of ease.
The aroma is molasses and cinnamon up front. Some brown sugar, pear and fruit cake show more prominently as it warms.
The flavor is spicy and sweet, but not over-sweet... really. Rich flavors of molasses and dark fruit along with brighter cherry and pear fruit notes. The more it warms the more the soft nuttiness comes through, which is really really nice.
