rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, - FEB 2, 2013
Bottled. Crystal clear copper color with low head. Rich sweet malty nose, with hints of toffee and dried fruits. Semi-mature aromas here. Buttery yeast character and sweet maltiness with caramel on medium levels. Full bodied with lots of potential yet to come with maturation.

laiti (5955) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 16, 2014
33 cl bottle @ Pikkulintu, BBE 05/2019. Very sweet aroma with ripe fruits and strong malty tones typical to doppelbocks. Flavour is rather malty with caramel, toffee, some alcohol, ripe fruits and distant woody tones. Something between american strong, barley wine and doppelbock. Sweet, but alcohol brings balance; a nice slow sipper.

Bottle 33cl from Jan thanks, a clear amber red beer with good creamy head. Nose is strong on over ripped fruits, caramel and spices.

Staffan47 (880) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2013
Maltig doft. Honung och knäckebröd. Maltig kropp. God. Ingen anledning att öppna den här igen på minst fem år. Låt den vara där nere i källaren nu! Flyktiga aromer.

_angst_ (3036) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle courtesy of RoNo. Pours clear amber with a tiny bubbly golden head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is sweet with biscuits, caramel, cereal, oatmeal cookies, alcohol, dark honey, wood and hints of dark rum. Taste is sweet, tiny bitter, malty and tiny floral with biscuits, sweet dark bread, caramel, dark honey, freshly baked toasty cookies, toasted cereal, wood, old dark rum, raisins, dates, christmas fruit cake and alcohol. Mouthfeel is sticky sweet, boozy, tiny fizzy and near medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with caramel, toasted malts, cookie dough, alcohol, wood, dark rum, honey and christmas fruit cake. Interesting but the surprisingly light body and heavily sweet taste makes it somewhat of a lesser experience.
