visionthing (4477) - Oslo, NORWAY - 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)

Skinnyviking (8555) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 8, 2012
Bottle. Low but lasting creamy dense off-white head. Hazy orange red brown body. Lovely roasted malt choccolate caramel cream sweet aroma. Would have loved to be able to smell the raisins, but so sorry mates I cannot do that. Slightly peppery choccolate caramel hoppy flavor with a high carbonation and a long bitter sweet aftertaste. A hint of alcohol but not too overwhelming.

sayravai (4706) - 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

lusikka (7649) - 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 (6065) - 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.
