TEJA (1372) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2009
50 cl bottle at Silja Line. Big light brown foam that lasts over a deap amber ale. Small hop aroma. SWEET taste with small or possibly no bitterness. The sweetness lastsfor everand then there is another foul taste also present. It’s suprising that a recipie could last for 500 years when the product is like this. I don’t know if I got a bottle direct from the brewery without proper storing but totaly unbalanced.

Pours deep nutty brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. Sweet malty aroma, some toffee, good roasted malts, some dried fruits and a touch of chocolate. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit roasted, some viniousness, lots of prunes and raisins. Medium sweetness, good dark roasted caramel. Fine beer.

MiP (13788) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2008
Bottle, 7.6%. Peppery and creamy aroma. Very dark brown colour, clear and with a chestnut shine. Good sweet flavour, quite peppery, quite malty. Very nice and actually well-balanced in spite of the strength.

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2008
Very deep and dark ruby brown color with very creamy and lacy light brown head. Aroma is sweet and roasty malty, syrupy and alcoholic. Flavor is very sweet malty with some roastiness, soft syrupy with very subtle bittery ending. Palate is medium to full-bodied, oily, sticky syrupy and low carbonated. Nice beer for a dessert.
