Claymore will be available in six-packs and on draft through mid-April.

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2009
Bottled@Oliver Twist, Stockholm (thanks to the guys from Ölfrämjandet who shared some beers with me). Ambery brown colour, small off-white head. Aroma is leather, toffee, caramel malts, plum and wood along with some fruityness as well. Flavour is quite much the same with the leathery notes being rather dominating. Yet very easy to drink.
