GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, 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.

LoFi (1595) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2010
Bottle. Dark red/brown with an off-white head with lots of minimal bubbles. Light smoke aroma, with malt, vörtbröd, christmas spices and fruit. Taste: malty, smoky, although not a meaty smoke, some dried fruits, orange with cloves, sweet and fruity with some acidity and a low bitterness. Medium-bodied with quite lively carbonation. This is nice and can work well with many of the Christmas dishes.

SirLimpsalot (2364) - SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2010
Doften är trevlig men ganska diskret kryddig. Smaken bestĺr av rök, skinka (sälta) och trevlig julkryddor. Eftersmaken avslutar ölen pĺ en mycket trevligt sätt.
