COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I väntan på Ragnarök!
"En tid kommer, då detta världsallt och naturen själf skola vara slocknade. Och liksom det funnits väldiga mänskliga riken och herredömen, af hvilkas underbara, en gång allbekanta öden inte tecken, intet rykte nu något förtäljer, så skall det komma en tid, då det ej finns ett spår mer, och som förtäljer om vår värld och dess vilda öden och lidanden. Endast öde tystnad och väldig ro skola uppfylla det oändliga rummet. Så skall alltets lif förgås och upplösa sig med sin fruktansvärda gåta, af ingen förklarad, af ingen begripen."
Giacomo Leopardi, 1798-1837

Stark vintervärmare, 10.0%, smaksatt med enris och honung.

(backlog) I think it was draft, but could have been a bottle(at bishop arms). Dark brune pour with tan head. Sweet juniper berries combined with some smoke in the aroma. Smoked malt, with some lighter sweet tones and berry. Finish has seem warmth to it.

beer_est_deus (501) - örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Bryggd 21dec 2010. Oklar mörk brun-orange med ett brunt skum som faller snabbt. Doft: Honung, söt malt, lite lucekatt, kanderat socker, torkad papaya, lite knäckebröd. Smak: Lucekatt, torkade exotiska frukter, honung, jäst. Förvånad över lucekatten som jag inte var ensam om att känna.

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle @ Tre Små Rum, Gothenburg. Pours a deep caramel body with a small white head. Aroma is intense grainy licorice tones, caramel and hints of herbs. Taste is strong leathery notes, herbs, smooth alcohol, caramel and hints of grains, grass and honey. Bitter finish. Good and rather original, but I somehow expected a bit more. This could easily be a barley wine, but I guess the extra ingredients tipped it into the "traditional ale"-category. A nice beer.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle @ Olrepublikan Goteborg. Dark amber appearance with no head. A bit smoky, rich caramel, light toffee, brown sugar aroma. Somewhat boozy, brown sugar, toasty malty, caramel, smoky, anise flavor. Kind of cool but the carbonation is low and the finish is a bit boozy.

kermis (4256) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle at 3 Sma Rum, Goteberg. Slightly hazy amber pour with a small off white head. Aroma of malt, smoke and caramel. Flavour of caramel, smoke and fruit. Medium bodied and with low carbonation. It’s a little weird for the style but enjoyable anyway.

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2012
18cl bottle. Pours a muddy brown color with little off-white head. Aroma is much weaker than expected on a 10% ABV beer: no presence of alcohol whatsoever, only a mild nuttiness and a tad of biscuity notes. Not really alot to speak of. Taste is packed of roots bitterness. Earthy, leefy, very bitter as if this was spiced with cinchona. Hints of licorice root as well. Thick body and very gentle carbonation. Overall, underattenuated for a 10% 18cl bottle. I was expecting something packed with flavours, I found not.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 31, 2012
courtesy of Per - hazy brown beer with a little beige foam left; strong nutty and malty aroma, notes of nougat, brown sugar and alcohol; thick and full-bodied, rounded and with some late earthy bitterness; long and robust malty and nutty finish with warming notes of alcohol - great stuff

rhialistic (156) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2012
On tap @ The Rover. Pours chocolate brown with a light tan head. Scent of smoky malt and juniper berries. Lots of juniper and smoke in the flavor as well, along with some dusty notes and dried cherries. Full mouthfeel, some expected alcohol heat, dry woody finish.

laiti (4943) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2012
Draught @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu. Rated on 08.04.2011
Aroma is rather light and smoky with tar, some ash and hints of licorice. Flavour is really rich with smoke, tar, some hops, licorice and ash. Palate turns very creamy after some sips. Feels like Okells Aile, but this is much more rich stuff. Good!

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Pours semi-transparent and copper with a small white head. Nose is hickory smoke, maples syrup and bacon. Smells like my favorite breakfast! Strong alcohol presence in the nose as well. Flavor is smoke and bitter up front but gives way to a sweet character that hangs around through the finish. Mouthfeel is oily yet smooth, coats well, leaves a long aftertaste.
