It’s hazy red-brown with a creamy head and the aroma has notes of caramel, malt, light alcohol and fruit. The sweet flavor has notes of roasted malt and loads of caramel, warming alcohol, fruit and the finish is dry with hints of licorice.

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.

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.

mikkopen (788) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2013
330 ml bottle. Hazy yellowish brown colour, thin and quickly dissipating off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with dark fruits and a whiff of alcohol. The flavour is sweetish malty, with raisins and notes of nuts, and a warm nutty finish. Not bad.

k2cr2o7 (66) - SPAIN - DEC 22, 2013
Cerveza ale color ámbar oscuro, espuma casi inexistente blanca, gasificación baja. El olor es bastante dulce y a malta caramelizada. El sabor es muy acaramelado con cierto toque a frutos rojos. El final es dulce y algo alcohólico. Recuerda a algunas barleywine.

mikkos (157) - FINLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Dark ruby with a cremy head, long lasting. Aroma is fruity sweet caramel malts, toffeeish, cognac, with a hint of alcohol. Taste is ripe fruits, sweet malts, raisin, warming and quite wintery indeed. Smooth mouthfeel, a bit short finish with no real bitterness. Warming alcohol. Nothing special, but still rather pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Coppery colour with an off-white head that quickly dissapears. Aroma has notes of caramel, molasses and raisins Flavor is moderate sweet with a good presence of alcohol, notes of molasses, raisins, red fruits, good maltiness. The final is slightly alcoholic with light sweet notes. Desnse and smooth on palate.

Light brown, bubbly beer with a brief beige head. Bread and earthiness on the nose. Coffee, bread, raisin, a bit dry but has a this caramelised sweetness in it. A mix of slight bitterness and sourness. Crispy carbonation. Medium body. Refreshingly different in my opinion and the sourness is in good amounts. I like this.
