CapFlu (4854) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2005
(500ml bottle) Pours a deep red body with a creamy, quick-dissipating almond head. Nose of butterscotch (best before March 2005). Roasted malt flavour with coffee tones. Interesting English Strong??? Thanks to Lubiere for the try.

ClubGonzo (4810) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 13, 2012
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew’s Epic Abstrakt/Blåbær tasting, feat. special guests Foffern and StoreMy. :-) Deep coppery amber body, small off-white head. Nose is raisins, coca-cola, hints of herbs, dark malts and caramel. Taste is present caramel, dark malts, molasses and sawdust (mostly in the aftertaste). Wood-ish, dry aftertaste with a slightly parching touch. A pretty decent Christmas ale.

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.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
Flaske 500ml fra Systembolaget, Kiruna. Drukket i Skibotn 26 Des 14. Dyp rødbrun. Lavt skum med litt farge. Antydning til lacing. Beskjeden maltaroma. Smaken er litt fruktig med en økende syrlig bitterhet. Ettersmak av krydder.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2004
(Bottled) Dark reddish brown color with small head. Aromatic and flowery hopped, even wineous aroma. Flowery, quite hoppy, woody and reasonably malty flavor with some spiciness. Quite smooth but bitter, medium-bodied, soft-carbonated palate. A very nice, hoppy and tasty ale. Like Postiljon with added spiciness for christmas.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2004
Sweet, nutty malt aroma. Dark brown body with generous off-white head that recedes to nice cover. Sweet, malty, nutty, woody, earthy, caramel flavour with some herbal hops. Very complex. Smooth body and soft carbonation. Medium-light body works to advantage in this one. Very good, flirts with excellence. Bottle enjoyed with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere. Thanks, Per.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Dec 2004, Swedish dregs, Alts etc tasting w/MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere #15. Bottle. Dark hazelnut color, fairly clear...bit of decaying head...malty, lightly spicy nose features caramel and juniper...spicy/woody flavors with a touch of late cinnamon, lovely thick malt, perhaps a touch too much carbonation but quite nice overall.

Pyrmir (4353) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2013
500 ml bottle, rated from backlog. Dark ruby with tan head. Aroma is sweet, honey, fruit, grass and malt. Taste is well balanced with a bit of dried fruit, citrus and sweet malt.

olsvammel (4327) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2009
It poured a very dark, clear, red liquid with a large beige foam that left a nice lacing. Weak smell of bread and spices. A hint of ginger, but it was hard to pinpoint the different spices as they where quite subtile. My guess is it was a mix of dried orange peels, ginger and cloves. Fairly smooth mouthfeel with a medium body. Taste of caramell, dark bread and spices. Once again I’m leaning towards cloves and ginger. Not a bad beer but it gets a bit lost in the competition at the moment.

tkrjukoff (4206) - SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Pours clear ruby dark brown with a huge tanned head leaving lacing. Aroma is fruity, malty, toasted and a bit soapy. Flavor is malty, acidy, roasted, fruity and bitter. A bit watery thin body. Finishes bitter malty.
