Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 23, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2007 Courtesy of omhper. Pours brown with a thin ring of tan bubbles scattered about the glass. Smells of caramel, brown sugar, raisins, roses, chocolate, lots of holiday spices. Tastes of chocolate, cinnamon, some mellow bitterness, Lots of holiday flavors. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but the finish is sweet and leaves me wanting more.

Bottled. Clear, copper-colored beer with a beige, almost tan head. Cloves, roasted malt, christmas-spices and vanilla in the aroma. The flavor has much the same, with cloves, roasted malt and some vanilla. Full to medium body. A nice, christmasy Christmas beer. (070213)

larsga (7155) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2007
Medium creamy offwhite head. Deep dark brownish red body with some carbonation. Burnt, malty harmonic aroma with cinnamon notes. Deep, balanced burnt wooden taste with vanilla, smoke, and caramel notes. Very well made. Extremely drinkable, considering how unusual it is. Very good. (0.5l bottle.)

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown with a red tinge. Thin tan head. Fresh, herbal and spicy nose. Taste is medium sweet and roasty, with flavors of dark malts, dark dried fruits, Christmas spices, and mild and gentle hops. Medium body. Dry and quite salty finish. Nice all over.

KnutAlbert (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2007
Bottled. Some spices, but it is more like a porter-style dark ale. Some smoked malt in there. A fine beer.

rbesg06, bottle at delirium. browny purple with a creamy beige head. bizarre aroma - bandaids, floorboards, cherry, nutmeg, cocoa powder, finnish fish buffet. funky with some earthy cummin, coffee bean, beetroot. all over the place but somehow it works

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2007 Bottle... Clear dark ruby ale with a large, frothy, lightly tanned head. Good retention. Malty, spicy nose with notes of clove, ginger, caramel malt and sassafras. Malty, spicy, lightly vinous flavor. Decently bittered, but leans a touch on the sweet side of balance. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Spicy, lightly bitter finish... eventually dries out a bit. Kudos to marsiblursi for floating this one to me across the pond!

ekstedt (6386) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 Draught at Bishops Arms, Avenyn, Göteborg, Sweden. Dark reddish brown with a yellowish beige head. Aroma full of burnt, roasted malt, coffee, and spices, and a hint of liquorice. Silky mouthfeel, a faint sweetness that goes well with a pronounced bitterness.

Svesse (7698) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2007 (Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm) Very dark brown, almost black, colour with foamy, beige head. Roasted, spicy nose with notes of coffee (sweet), brown sugar, clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. Roasted and spicy taste with brown sugar, juniper berries, spruce needles, blueberries, hints of smoke, cinamon, cardamom and a slightly bittersweet finish. Medium to full body, rather sweet. Tasty, a bit too sweet for my taste. Suspect this cask has passed its peak, but I have a couple of bottles in the fridge, so I’ll give it a new try within short. 6/4/7/4/14=3,5 (Rerate, bottle 19 Feb 2007) Dark brown colour with reddish hints. Firm, foamy, pale brown head. Spicy, salty, rather roasted nose with notes of ryvita, brown sugar and hints of orange peel, soy sauce and even some banana. Slightly roasted, spicy taste with notes of chocolate, roasted nuts, ryvita, coffee, dark rye bread and herbs. A lot drier and less fruity than the cask version, with a distinct hoppy bitterness creeping up on you towards the end. Tasty and warming. (Spiced with nutmeg, caraway, clove, vanilla and orange peel according to the label)
