Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2006
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Dark amber colour with ruby notes, brief off-white head. Fruity nose with notes of dried apricots, wort, caramel, cherries, chocolate, spices (cinnamon, ginger) and hops (grapefruit). Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, chocolate, toffee, wort, citrus (blood oranges, grapefruit) and a heavy spicy bitterness in the finish. Very well balanced. Lovely!

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Bottled, BB 03/07. Poured a really cool shade of clear garnet with a medium, well-retained cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, lightly-spiced English toffee and caramel notes.. rather dusty overall, with very good dark fruit coming through with warmth. The flavor shows quite a bit of degredation.. sour oxidation notes had a rather vinous quality.. toffee and some spices at the core.. finished with some sour cardboard and dark fruit. Medium-bodied and sour on the palate, but you could tell that this was good deep down.

larsga (7316) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2008
Medium light brown head. Deep dark barely translucent red body. Light roasty sooty aroma with sugary fruity notes. Dry-sweetish roasty minty taste with resiny chocolatey notes. Lightish body. Mild mouthfeel. Dry burnt spicy licorice and chocolate aftertaste with light acidity. Nice, drinkable. (0.5l bottle from gr0ve.)

Dark ruby beer, bottled. Rich and malty. Sweet, a little burned sugar. Some hoppy dryness, though it comes across as too sweet.
