Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle. A dark red brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is of caramel malt, smoke and some spices. The taste is light sweet, roasted malt, caramel and smoke. Medium body with a light smoked finish.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2008
Bottled. Pours out in a dark cloudy brown colour with a sticky white foam. Mild aroma of cocoa, roasted malts and coffee. Medium-bodied with sourish notes of burnt/roasted malts with sweet undertones of coffee. Acidic finish of burnt malts and brown sugar. Acidic, stale and infected.

Smells of muddy, murky barley, not a crisp smell and not something I find very appealing. looks all right, a little light coloured for a stout and no real head. Taste is all right, a little watery as far as stouts go, with a dark roasted barley flavour. Very simple. Rather weak, in my opinion, for this style of beer.

Brown colour. Aroma is smoke, coffee and a micture of dark fruits and vegetables. Flavour is roasted malts, just a little bit of metallic notes with a dry finish.

Meantime make very average beers and put more effort into their pretty bottles/labels. If they are reading this, try putting some complex quality beer in those pretty bottles. I’d drink this again if I was really desperate.

gnoff (9594) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2008
50 cl bottle from Systembolaget. BB 021010. Slight hazy copper color, nice tan to light brown head. Acidic and smoke scent, perhaps some lemon. Acidic to sour taste, must be infected. Thin mouthfeel, low bitterness. Too bad. Heard this was a problem with part of this batch, since the batch of old smoked bock to Sweden was infected as well, sort of gives me the idea they have huge problems.
