Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2013
0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This one pours quite a good looking clear deep dark nougat brown body with a medium sized fading and light lacing beige top. It has a really deep nutty sweet aroma this. Lots of oxidized caramel, deep fruits, some wood. It has grown a bit soft on the carbonation this and the mouthfeel is quite slick. More fruit dark sweetness in the flavor, sweet dates, prunes, traces of sherry and it’s extremely oxidized. One year past best before date, but I don’t mind that a bit. A really good surprise from Africa! Thanks Foffern! 04.03.2013

AndreasJaeger (505) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2013
Brun i färgen med orange ton, vitt skum. Doftar mörkt bröd, mörk unken malt, alkohol, nötter och choklad. Smakar surt rostad malt, alkohol, sött mörkt bröd, för mycket kolsyra.

AtronSeige (513) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 13, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 A very sweet dried fruit and heavy toffee malty aroma. A dry malty taste with medium sweetness, light bitterness and a a savory taste. Light carbonation and overall very enjoyable. Usually only available during the winter months. The South African distributor, Brandhouse, seems to be fumbling, because the beers are coming in late and the beer is still being flogged late summer! So check the age before you buy!

Coolmac (51) - SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 11, 2012
Pours with a nice head which dissipates quickly. Aroma of dried fruit & caramel. Beautiful clear brown with minimal head. Heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter, with a medium body and slick feel on the tongue, flavours of caramel & coffee. A really easy drinking bock for when you want something more flavoursome than a normal lager.
