Palme (2993) - Bergen, - FEB 1, 2013
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a clear dark brown one with a small islandy and sidesticking off-white top. It has a aroma with traces of ginger bread, soft cloves, caramel and some slightly salty licorice. Non-extreme, but nice enough. It has a nice average carbonation level and a slightly oily to slick mouthfeel. The taste is not as present. There is this Ajax-detergent slightly alcoholic aftertaste that’s not directly pleasant. Chocolate, some acidic old "grey" coffee. The aftertaste is not pleasant, but still not horrible. A bit chalky also perhaps. Not to Christmassy. 26.12.2012

mzaar (1366) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2013
Flaska, årgång 2012. Mörkbrun med litet smutsvitt skum som snart lägger sig för att försvinna helt. Dofter av russin, plommon, apelsinkaka, mörk choklad och alkohol. Russin, mörk choklad, kaffe, torkad frukt, sötlakrits, röda frukter och svag rökighet. Ljuvlig sötma i eftersmaken. Mjuk munkänsla. Väldigt bra.

FatPhil (8595) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 15, 2013
330 ml bottle ( pikkulintu, Helsinki ) < br > Lovely dark fruits, beautifully aged. Almost Black, tight beige head. Very sweet body. Touch papery as it’s so old, but the mellow aspects rule. Body has some milkiness, but is dominated by the beautifully aged malts. Is showing its age a bit, but still very sophisticated. Lovely rich roast to the malts, toasty and bready. No sign of 7% At all. Has aged wonderfully.

heavy (2075) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 31, 2013
17/04 A 0.5 l bottle, courtesy of ogivlado, great thanks for sharing! Poured clear brown body with small head. Dark, mildly roasted malts in aroma, chocolate, cooked plum jam, raisins, cocoa, touch of coffee... Slightly peaty flavor, caramel sweet, rather complex with also some other dark malt flavors, variety of smoked notes going from tobacco to peat. Full bodied, tasty and rather balanced, smooth palate. Dark chocolate and dried fruits along with some acidity in its long finish. It was said to be my first beer of the Scottish ale style, but anyhow, it was a pleasure to try another fine brew.

Bottled 500ml. -from trade with Nisse666, thanks Thomas. Brown coloured with red glare, small off-white head, pleasant roasty nose. Light roasted malt, mild alcoholic and soft dried fruits with notes of chocolate in the finish. Quite nice brew.

Marko (3771) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 20, 2013
Julöl 2012. Courtesy of Nisse through Ogivlado (thanks!). Poured a dark brown-red body, clear, with almost no head (what little there was was off-white). Roasty aroma, chocolate, dark malt, sweetish... Taste... light chocolate, roasty, sweetish yet balanced, very slightly smoky, bitterness more pronounced than expected. One might almost think it a stout from the profile. Lovely overall. And yeah, Ogi said it was here under "Scottish Ale" which baffled me... "Scotch Ale" makes slightly more sense. Yeah, pretty great.
