lusikka (6267) - 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.

larsga (6218) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 14, 2011
Medium beige head. Lovely deep reddish amber body with carbonation. Sugary raisiny caramelly aroma with earthy fruity notes. Dry-sweet earthy roasty papery taste with caramelly raisiny notes. Mid-to-full body. Dry-sweet soy sauce and raisins aftertaste with earthy spicy buttery notes. Very nice, and quite unusual. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly.)

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks avrashi. Murky brown. Aroma of malt, sherry, raisins, a bit of cardboard and a bit of chocolate notes. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, chocolate, some dark fruits notes and oxidation. Finishes drier. Medium-bodied. Not so fun.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 14.08.2016
Aroma is malty with lots of toffee and hints of berries. Also some vanilla and baking stuff. Flavour has raspberries, some toffee, malty notes and caramel. Some fruity hops occur after a sip. Also some yeasty and worty notes at the middle of the glass. Quite odd and somewhat messy, but for some reason I seem to enjoy this.
