Timvim (90) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle @ home 20140828. Black opaque with a small brown head, low-medium carbonation. Aroma of licorice, tobacco, raisins, plums, rum, vanilla, cherries. Taste is plums, raisins, vanilla, figs, burnt tobacco (almost lika a cigar), almonds. Very rich and complex. Very nice, although a little bit too much on the burnt side for me.

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle, 180ml. A dark reddish brown beer, lightly unclear, and with some beige bubbles on top. The aroma has roasted malts, coffee and dried fruits, with some vinous raisin notes. It’s full-bodied and warming on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Pretty vinous flavor too, with chocolate, raisins and some coffee notes. Lasting vinous finish. Pretty lovely this one. 140418
