3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
35,5cl bottle. Thanks to Baggio. Pours deep amber reddish with a creamy lasting head and lacings. Nose is sweet of yeast, berries and red wine. Smooth and full bodied. Taste is sweet with a slight sour and vinous note. Lots of dark dried fruits such as plum, raisin and a little caramel and bubblegum. A vinous and warm sipper. Some syrup and sugar as it warms up. Very nice. Nearly quadruple style.

Draught, Fred’s Rivertown Alehouse, Snohomish, WA
Burgundy colour. Chocolatey, raisiny aroma. Sweet flavour with slight toffee character. Brown sugar finish. Far too sweet and tastes filtered...has a slick body rather than a full one and lacks complexity.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 9.4%. Sweet aroma, hint of vanilla. Sweet flavour, some alcohol and some brown sugar. A bit too sweet for me and not quite balanced by the alcohol. Sweet apricot.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly sour aroma, along with a sweetness. And yeast. Beautiful amber color, with reddish tone. Starts with sweet caramel, moves on to plummy tones. Finishes with toasty malt and a bit of candy sweetness. Maybe some coffee.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 355ml bottle (Systembolaget, Stockholm) - joint venture with Mirjukka - thanks!
Deep brown, fizzy head. Gluey alcohol aroma, toffee too. Pleasant carbonation, but a bit fizzy. Toffee taste too, some glue, some alcohol. Spicing is non-descript and stale. Messed up and mucky.
