(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 14.08.16, from Alko, 20131108) The beer poured brown. quite clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, caramel, treacle and hops. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, caramel, sweetness, hint of hops and low bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, sweet and bitter. The strong malty body is a sign for aging potential and aging may tune down the sweetness which was a bit too intense now.

Hermod (4453) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
33cl bottle. Bb 14.06.16. Copper color, thin white head. Caramel, raisins, sticky boozy notes in aroma. Raisins, malt, sweet bready notes in flavor. Quite boozy taste as well. Way too much alcohol coming through to be enjoyable. As an English strong ale this is a disappointment for sure.

lusikka (7466) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark amber orange colour with a small head. Aroma of rum, raisins, orange zest and sugary sweetness. Rather rich flavour of sweet raisins, quite subtle alcohol notes, orange zest, spices and plums. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and low-ish carbonation. Alcohol warms nicely. This would work quite nicely as a dessert beer.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
(Bottled) Almost clear, dark copper-brown with a smallish, quickly descending head. Strong aroma of raisins and plums with caramely maltiness and burned sugar. Flavor is caramely and dark-fruity with raisins and lightly roasted, but mostly syrupy maltiness. Low bitterness. Quite full-bodied with low and soft CO2. A very smooth and warming brew with lots in common with Belgian dubbels and quads. It’s missing the crucial yeast part, though, but definitely worth a try. 6237

DAA; My favorite brewery.. today. Pours dark amber with fast fading off-white head. Aroma is sweet malty, dryed fruits -yes raisin. Taste is much the same,but weak, still vinious.. Why do i feel dissapointed? A must re-rate.

Sampled at Bar Animale, Madrid. Dry wooden, somewhat wooden strong ale notes. Medium to light body. Aromatic fruity finish. Surprisingly light beer, dangerous

330 ml bottle shared 26.Oct.2011 at Rating Session. Cheers Rune! Hazy dark amber body with creamy head. Fermented raisin, figs and plums to the nose. Taste of pickeled fruits, with hint of coffee/toffee and cloves. Great beer for chilly winter evenings!
