lusikka (6874) - 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.

mjs (5073) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
(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.

ClubGonzo (4522) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle. Deep amber body with a small, quickly disappearing off-white head. Nose is caramel, raisins, booze and a bit of bread yeast, which I find kinda strange. Taste is strong notes of caramel, with some tones of burnt sugar, roasted malts, alcohol and hints of raisins. Smooth mouthfeel. Burnt sugar again in the aftertaste, flanked by some boozy notes. Well integrated flavor profile, if not too overtly exciting all in all. A nice winter warmer, and a pretty drinkable - and likable - beer. Best one from Lervig that I’ve had so far.

tmrmwel (1181) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2011
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours a dark, reddish brown, with a good, full head. Rich, dark fruity aroma, with hints of strawberries, and a touch of alcohol also apparent in the rich, complex taste. Very sweet, with notes of burned/ candi sugar, dark fruits and roasted malt. Body is full and creamy. A lightly astringent, burned finish.

yngwie (14775) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2011
Bottle. It pours a clear, copper to brown body and a finger-thick off-white to light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is dominated by dried fruits and caramel. Some alcohol too, and a nice hoppyness. Full-bodied and a bit heavily carbonated, slightly warming. Some hints of cooked corn in the flavor, but that disappeares in the split of a second, followed by caramel, dried fruits and a touch of spicyness. Some coffee-like roasted notes in the far back. Lasting finish with caramel and dried fruits. A nice one, picking up the Christmas spirit in a nice way, and of course well suited for a long, cold winter. 110304
