BeerSkull (1304) - SWEDEN - APR 21, 2012
Sweet malty aroma with elements of caramel and a nuance of citrus. Sweet taste of brown sugar and malt. Thin, sweet and sticky aftertaste. Boring!

Finn (4201) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2009
Bottle 0,5l. Dark brown colored with a creamy head. Sweet perfumed malty aroma. Caramellish impression. Unvaried.

Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2009
500 ml bottle. Mahogany. Clear. No head. Light raisiny aroma with some caramel. Crisp hop flavours. Floral and slightly spicy. High carbonation level. Medium-bodied, but is on the light side. Flavour is of dry lighly burnt caramel and dark sugars. Peppery aftertaste. The lack of a head and the coarse carbonation pulls down the overall impression. It is pretty much like drinking coca cola with a little dark wort.

fonefan (35066) - VestJylland, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2009
Bottle 50cl.
Clear medium amber color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to light beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, bread, paper, brown sugar notes. Flavor is moderate sweet and light light bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. [20081121]

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2008
Medium yellow coarse head disappears immediately, leaving absolutely nothing. Dark red translucent body. Syrupy licorice and dishwater aroma. (WTF?) Dryish-sweetish licorice taste with earthy meaty notes. Empty body. Dry roasty papery, peppery aftertaste with acidic notes. Lacking in bitterness. Decent, but flawed. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2008
500 ml bottle. Low, mostely diminishing beige head. Clear, plain brown colored body. Light nutty malt aroma. Caramel notes and a distant whiff of spice and roasted malts. Medium sweet malt flavor. Notes of dark fruits and a faint spicy bitterness. Slim body. Clean and quite lively mouthfeel. Short dryish malty finish with a vague bitterness.

Gusgus (232) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2008
Bottle 081129. Aroma of butterscotch, caramel and chocolate. Thin body with clean maltiness. Bland.

faroeviking (10289) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 4, 2008
Botella. Clear dark brown colour. Sweet malty caramel bit spiced aroma. Flavour of softly roasted malt with caramel and some spice ending with a bitter sweet finish.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2008
Bottle, 5.0%. Dark brown colour. Very small light brown colour. Thin flavour, some malt and a little sweet spiciness. Too subtle.
