Seems the appropriate time of year for this fellow. Aroma starts with harsh maltiness, which gives way to a good sellection of fruits. Taste is also fruity however seems flatter than what it should be, very little carbonation. Intresting character.

(on bottle, thx jeppe)actually I would have taken this one for a nice little ale; turning out to be a lager, it must have been the very sweet and spicy nose, that had me on a wild goose chase. it´s very dark orange, like rust, with a white, disapearing head. Powerfull, aromaitics, barley, pumkin/squash and cloves. A bit hard on the alcohol in the finish, gets almost metallic and icky on the palate.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A deep red beer with a huge light brown head. The aroma is extremely sweet with notes of alcohol, berries, and citrus. The flavor is also very sweet with strong notes of alcohol, which gives it hints of metal - too sweet and alcoholic for my liking. The flavor also contains notes of berries and wood, and it has a dry end.

A dark amber beer with a fine light brown head. The aroma is of sweet caramalt. The flavor is awful - too sweet with notes of caramel and the alcohol burning the mouth. Yuk - I don’t like this.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Canned, 8.4% ABV, BBE 02/2006) Clear, darkish red-amber color with a small, big-bubbled and mostly fading head. Some toffeeish caramel in the aroma when pouring, but it disappears quickly into mild metallicity and faint toffee and berry hints. Caramely-malty, slightly sweet and roasty, very straightforward flavor. Has some wineous feel, and alcohol is quite clearly present in the finish. Barely medium-bodied - not quite enough for the ABV. It’s actually quite hard to believe that this would be top-fermented. It feels like some Estonian strong, dark lagers.

Typical red beer, fruity, maybe too sweet. Refreshing but a bit disgusting, maybe too much alcohol too .... Very nice bottle.

Quite good beer but the alcohol taste is too strong. Strange watery and mettallic finish. Nice aroma and flavor.
