hopdog (11032) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle. Poured a brown color with a small sized off white head. Caramel, brown sugary, some wood, and dark fruits. Lighter vinous quality in the tastes. On the sweeter side ... a enjoyable sipper.

Bottle. Very dark amber, brickish highlights, low golden head. Sweet malty aroma, burnt sugars abound, dark fruits. Sticky, sweet, richly malty palate with flavours of molasses, brown sugar, dates, toast. Lip smackingly sweet sipper with enormous depth of flavour. Loved it.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 15, 2013
Cola brown, thin sickly bubble ring clings to the glass. Toasted marshmallows, very sweet, soya sauce shining through, and the aroma rounds off with the smell of the Safeway frozen juice freezer. Taste is mild for what this is, but still its a punch to the face. Prunes, soya, burnt sugar, almost but not a red wine. Sweetness builds but stays in control. Beer gets better and better the longer it sits. I drank this beer that is all.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph. Pours clear chestnut with a small, staying, creamy beige film head. Aroma is lovely, oak, tobacco leaves, caramel, soft chocolate, apple. It is sweet, elegant, figs, vinious. Very, very good.

olio (8882) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2013
33 cl bottle.
Pours dark mahogany red color with a small head. Aroma is sweet with dark fruits, lots of caramel malts, some brown sugar and toffee, faint resinous hops also. Very sweet plum and raisins on the flavor, caramel malts, toffee, wood, some plums and raisin with a hint of vanilla at the end. Alcohol is very well evened out with the sweet fruits and caramel. Soft carbonation, complex and heavy malty body with a sweet lingering finish. Very tasty slow sipper, not as brilliant as the Back Room was though.
