Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2006
Bottled. Vintage 2006. Hazy reddish brown coloured. Fruity and yeasty aroma with notes of malts and some chocolate. The flavour is quite different from earlier years. Before it was sweet, malty and rather full bodied, this year it is more yeasty and fruity with a rather sharp bitter finish and less body. They need to get rid of that yeastyness and get the body and balance back for 2007. This used to be an excellent brew.

mjs (5059) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2009
(Bottle, BBE 03/08 -- thanks Kolbjørn -- on 2009-02-18) Very deep reddish brown. Small white head. Raisin and malts in aroma. Full bodied and dry palate with little carbonation. Raisin, roastedness, bitterness, sweetness and hint of chocolate in taste. Raisin in aftertaste.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2008
500 ml bottle. Big coarse, lightly tanned head. Lasting with fine lacework. Brilliant dark ruby-brown body. Inviting malty and fruity aroma. Suggestions of mild spices and chocolate. Chocolate-ish malt flavor, fruits and spices and a nice rounded sweetness, balanced by a gentle hopbitterness. Medium body. Feels soft and smooth in the mouth. Malty, mild bitter ending. I like this a lot.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2010 Bottle 2009 edition. Christmas tasting 2009-11-27 AR: wee hoppyness AP: dark brown body, bubbly white head F: medium low bitterness, some spicyness - a bit boring, this one have been much better before (earlier editons) 2008 edition Färg: Lapsang suchong. Skum: försvann. Doft: humle, vörtbröd Smak: humle (amerikansk), sesamfrö/nötter (kollade in systembolaget - de hittar grapefrukt???) Köp i parti och minut passar som standard dryck till julbordet. Har smakat bättre förr? Eller har konkurrenterna blivt för bra? Provdatum: 2008-12-23
