Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 5, 2010
50CL bottle courtesy of omhper. Pours brown and clear with a lingering tan head. Smells of light spice, nutty, earthy, some tea. Tastes spicy with some iced tea, peppery hints, herbal qualities. Simple spice hint on the finish.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2008
Biggish light brown shiny head. Deep dark red translucent body. Fruity vanilla fudge aroma, mellow and harmonic. Dry roasty buttery vanilla fudge taste with fruity caramel notes. Mid-bodied. Dry fruity metallic roasty aftertaste. Fruityness clashes with the metal, and really spoils it for me. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 1 Oct 2011) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with dark bread, toasty malt, crispbread and raisins. Malty, slightly roasted taste with notes of dark bread, wort, chocolate and hints of raisins. Medium body, with a certain sweetness and a mild, spicy bitterness. Quite nice.

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2009
Bottle. A fairly traditional Scandinavian Christmas beer. Lots of sweet malt, caramel malt to give color. Some spicy hops, sweet finish. If you want to boast of brewing craft beer, you should be a bit more inventive than this.

<i>Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget</i>. Clear reddish brown, rich beige bitter head. Malty aroma with soffe roasted chocolate notes. Light to medium bodied, very soft but lively carbonation. Quite dry with low to moderate bitterness. Close to being very good, but something is lacking.
