Dark reddish-brown body topped with a nice and lasting off-white foamy head. Good malty nose with spicy and yeasty hints. Robust and complex taste that has some notes of toffee, spices, dark berries, and brown sugar. Ends with a long and warm finish. More than drinkable.

MiP (14007) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2005
Bottle. Malty aroma, but a bit like flat lager. Nice dark chestnut colour, big semi-stable head. Flavour is OK malty, but with a rather weak/watery aftertaste. Nice, soft carbonation.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2005
11.2 oz bottle. Dark brown beer, ruby tint, with a thick, sticky, light brown head. Sweet malty aroma, plum, pine (needles, not hops), brown sugar, yeasty spice, clove, and a nutty breadiness. Very complex and superbly balanced nose. Flavour is awesome, malty and sweet up front, but never cloyingly so. Brown sugar, toast, clove and spice, some heavy plumminess. Full bodied and delicious. Awesome beer.

jimhilt (2451) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Pours a light tan, two-finger head, fades slowly and leaves a good lace. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Cloudy amber color. Nose is slighty malty. Starts just on the sweet side, finishes mellow, better as it warms; label has the ABV at 8.5% but there is not a trace of alcohol. $8.90 for a 750ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, MA.

Tap@Ølbaren. Brown with a rudy twist. Beige dissapearing head. Pleasant aroma with notes of sweetness, spices and yeast. Soft and fullbodied with complex balanced taste and a warm aftertaste.
