jaghana (3503) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle 33cl from Jan thanks, a clear amber red beer with good creamy head. Nose is strong on over ripped fruits, caramel and spices. Aroma is very sweet, vinous with oxidized touch such as prune and port notes. Body is a bit creamy with red fruit and quetches notes, long spicy finish with good bitterness, touch of tannins as for rich red vines and caramel, good complexity.

Staffan47 (809) - 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_ (2377) - 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.

(Bottle). Aroma and flavor is sweet with flavors of malt, figs and alcohol. Ok beer, but not much of a celebration.

ErnieBall (4) - SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2013 does not count
The taste of jamaican rum (cane sugar) takes over the overall taste to much. My expectations of this beer was fare much higher due to the many other good tasting beers that comes from Nils Oscar.
