fiulijn (16644) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2011
Dark color, between dark amber and brown; small sized head. It has a mild aroma of caramel, paper and bark. Smooth mouthfeel; the body is correctly structured; pleasant caramel flavor, but without the elegance and strength of German beers; light smoke trace; the final shows a bit more of dark caramel. Pleasant, balanced, smooth, but not exciting.

Bottle. The aroma is malty and a little smoked and roasted and also a little caramel. The colour is amber and a little tanned head. The flavour is fruity and spicy and a littel caramell. A really nice christmas beer

330ml bottle - birthday gift from SaintMatty - thanks!
7 On pouring, tons of banana. In the glass, there’s still plenty of banana, but a pleasant dry wooly smokiness too. Was served cold, so expect it to evolve.
4 Lovely deep red, with an brief spongy orangy tan head.
7 Great rich roasty taste, a touch wooly. Some liquorice and slightly christmassy spices there too.
4 Full palate, smooth and a touch sweet, and with pleasant carbonation. Finish picks up from the roastiness of the taste, and continues with actual burntness, and a bit of barky bitterness.
14 Covers the alcohol well. Full of flavour, rich and warming. Good one. Thanks SaintMatty!

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 12, 2011
330mL at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan in Stockholm, Sweden. The pour is a hazy red with a thin, off-white head leaving scant lace. Aroma is heavy mint, olives, salt, socks, sweat, odd numbing spices, sage, and maybe raspberry (?). Older cheesy hops (?). Taste is lighter than expected, bitter, soapy, chalky, powdery. Dry, powdery palate. Not really feeling this one.

Travlr (16791) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 11, 2011
2009 bottle at The Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, Sweden. Staff recommendation, and a good one. Dark cloudy brown. Aroma of campfire and burnt toffee. Taste is like a perfect scotch. Nice stuff.

Bottled (thanks omhper!). Amber colour, small brown head. Aroma is bready malts, some smoked and roasted notes along with some spices and caramel. Flavour is fruity, caramelly, wooden, spicy and mildly herbal notes as well. As it warms up some smoked wet wooden notes start to show. Fruity and grassy bitterness along with mild smoke in the finish.
