Wow this hurts your head cos you don’t realise the percentage, the taste is sweet but expected because of the high alcohol, very dark and fruity, a really great strong ale.

anders37 (17917) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2005
Cask @ Charlie’s Bar. Dark red colour. Malty aroma with hints of molasses and some fruitiness. Flavor is very malty and hints of caramel and dark fruits. The alcohol leaves you with a warming feeling. The finish is a little sweet.

Sobchak (131) - Skagen, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2005
(Cask, The Wharf, Aalborg) - Deep dark red colour. Malty, roasty molasses nose. The taste is warming, and packed with notes of caramel, chocolate, plums and alcohol, leading into a suprisingly dry aftertaste.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2005

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2005
Cask. Good head and sits nicely in the glass. Flavour starts well, with a lot of spicy fruit, but is a little too soupy, and lingers with a sharp and cloying alcohol on the back of the tongue. Classic good start, bad finish.

MPA (845) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - NOV 29, 2005
Maybe the taste of plums, raisins, prunes and other dark fruits is just meant to become more pleasant as one grows older. I certainly like it in beer, which makes me quite positive about this beer. Although it is on the light side in the dark fruit department, it still makes up for a good beer It’s supplement of nice malty tones combined with it’s taste of Grandma, makes me consider buying a vintage Ford A and go off on a voyage to the "old" days (and I’m only 30?!)

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 10, 2005
Tasted 09/11/2005. 500ml bottle from Liquorland, Miramar. Deep ruby with an oily, light tan, head that slowly vanishes. Big caramel nose that also comes through in the flavour, with dried fruits (both prunes and raisins) and a subtle woodiness. This beer hint’s of a good quality rum, with coke - in a good way. Very seet in the middle. Softly carbonated and medium bodied. Slightly oily mouthfeel and dry finish suggest that there are more hops and roast malt than the nose or flavour suggest. Not everday drinking but not bad.

Bottle. Red brown colour with a big baige head. Sweet caramel, dark fruity aroma and a very sweet caramel, dark fruity taste. Medium body and a very sweet finish.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2005
Bottle. Red-brown with a beige collapsing head. Chewy sweet maltiness, dark fruits, raisins, finish keeps some balance. Low carbonation making it slightly watery.
