rauchbier (3593) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2006
Bottle, DBF 2005. Hazy bronze, low off white head and low condition. Gentle mix of fruity hop and bitter coffee in the nose, pleasantly balanced in the mouth with a low but sustained hop note matched by sweet chocolate and caramel notes, lingering but muted finish with elements of hop and chocolate apparent.

OleR (4767) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2006
Bottle, batch # 240. Unclear dark brown color. Beige medium-sized lasting head with nice laces. Pleasant aromas of floral hops, fresh and sourish fruits and yeast. Taste is slight sweet and roasted with a distinct hoppy bite. Dry finish. A bit thin-bodied, but still a really enjoyable beer.

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2006
Hazy reddish brown, with a decent/deminising off-white head. Has some burnt malty aromas as well as some saltiness. Not quite balanced, but a fine choice to heavy casserole dishes.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2008 Medium brownish beige head. Deep red body, somewhat hazy. Roasty, burnt caramel pudding aroma with notes of citric, pine needle hops, and some lacquer and wood. Dry burnt chocolatey caramel pudding taste with bitter pine needle aftertaste. A bit thin-bodied. Some background sweetness as well. Dry aftertaste of burnt wood, citric pine needle hops with peppery, minty notes. Very nice. (0.5l bottle. Batch #211. I remember roughly the same aroma and taste from earlier batches. Rerated batch #342. Again pretty consistent with earlier tastings.)
