Dark brown in colour. A brown head. The aroma brings wood, burnt malt, hot spice and ash. The flavor is from tar, dark malt. Interesting...!

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2006
Aroma: slightly smoky, leathery, fresh wood (not sawdust), nutmeg, malty, odd fruityness, (half acrid background aroma: coriander leaves), chocolate, ginger, syrup, cloves and moss. The label says it’s brewed with nutmeg, caraway, cloves, vanilla & orange peel. Taking another sniff I detect: the caraway. The vanilla is subtly embedded in the malt. The orange peel is also detectable, maybe this was what I thought of as coriander leaves. Appearance: very dark, reddish brown (=black). Pale beige, slightly browntinted head that looks milky and stoutlike. Flavour: lovely bitterness accompanied by a malty, slight sweetness, well balanced, but a bit watery. Palate: good but a bit too slimy, not very carbonated (good thing), round and mellow, buttery and creamy.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2006
(Bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival) Dark. Spicy stout/porter feeling. Quite rich. Can’t quite figure out all the spices but there’s a definite "glögg"-thing going on. Not really sure if I like this.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2006

thebeertourist (5069) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2006
Bottle at Haket, Göteborg.Almost black with a khaki head. Spicy and fruity aroma. Flavours are sweet with a tart and smoky edge. Personally, I like beers with a complex personality, this one not knowing whether it wants to be a dubbel or a porter. Originality goes a long way.

Lubiere (10840) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2006
Hazy dark brown ale with a thin off white head. Nice spiced aroma, with sweet malt, ginger and cloves. In mouth, the cloves are more predominant, and the body is lighter than expected. Still an interesting gift from Joris, April 2005. Enjoyed with Capflu. Dank U.
