Deep red in colour, spicy bitterness, had a sugary/gassy fizziness on the tongue and a sticky hop finish as jbrus mentions.

ClubGonzo (5422) - 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.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2005
2003 edition. Amber reddish beer with a small off white head. Malty and fruity aroma with a light buttery note. Malty and nutty flavor with a light caramel sweetness.

Hildigöltur (5105) - 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.

CapFlu (5101) - 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.

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.

visionthing (4800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 16, 2015
50cl bottle from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours clear copper coloured with an off-white head. Malty aroma with some spicy, caramelly and fruity notes, raisins and hints of herbs. Sweet, malty and somewhat fruity with hints of spices and a medium bitter finish. Well balanced and quite tasty. Nice Christmas beer, but still a bit too much on the sweet side.
