3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml Bottle - Hazy copper with a small head. Marzipan, raisins, fruit cake, leather and malt in the aroma. Fruity, sweet and malty taste with notes of Christmas cake, spice, raisins, malt and nuts. Easy to drink, yet full of body. Its taste belies its ABV. I have another bottle of this in my ’cellar’ and look forward to seeing how it matures. It is certainly very enjoyable and impressive at this stage.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (33 cl), thanks gnoff. Hazy mahogny, creamy beige head. Very nutty aroma, with fudge and mild earthy & herbal hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Very well balanced with a long bitter finish. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Recht dick und ebenso stark mit angenehmer Trinkbarkeit, etwas an Würze, einiges Früchten und einer gewissen Säure. Vollmundig, dem Alkohol durchaus zugetan und leicht getreidig. Dennoch belebend und befriedigend.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2016 Bottle from SB, cons 2010-09-23, Göteborg, 2007 year edition!
AR: a bit like old stock, vinos, pruns, chocolate, rasins, very round and a bit oaky. The nice aroma i still there after being poured.
AP: dark ruby body, creme caramell coloured froty head
F: a bit to obevious strong, but very nice flavours of caramel, scottish toffee, vinos, pruns, chocolate, rasins fruity and a bit dry finish. I guess it needs a couple of more years of storing to get a rounder flavour and more appeling taste. Oily consistence. Have had several editions of this beer, over the years.

(330ml bottle, 2010 vintage thanks to bu11zeye - Rating #3300!) clearish orange with a creamy tan head. Nose of honey, sweet caramel, a bit floral, smells so delicious. Taste is toasty, tiny bit alcoholic, sweet caramel. Wish it tasted exactly like it smelled. Still very nice.
