Flaske fra Polet og på Cardinal, jan-12: Har likt denne hver gang jeg har prøvd. Interessant med den utpregede rosinsmaken. Håper de lager en ny batch av denne.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2011
0.33L bottle from bestillingsutvalget, Vinmonopolet. Two fingers of fully diminishing beige head. Body is brownish red with good clarity. Modest aroma of nutty malts and dusty hops, along with a vague smell of caramel, dark bread and raisins. Lightly sweet, toasted, medium strong malt body. Some dark dried fruits. Sparesly hopped. Notes of higher alcohols. Light astringent mouthfeel. A certain acidulous fruitiness in a short ending. Drinks ok, but a bit unrefined.

visionthing (4800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours dark amber with a tiny light brown head. Aroma of raisins, caramel, roasted malt, alcohol and spices. Sweet and fruity with lots of raisins and some spices. Slightly bitter finish. Reminds me a bit about gløgg. Anyway it’s a nice winter warmer. (BF310915)

sayravai (4708) - 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

330ml bottle from Rune. Hazy medium brown colour, good head. Fruity caramel malt aroma. Sour malt flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Not really my thing.
