Rune (7943) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2012
500ml bottle shared with Finn. Golden-brown body, beige frothy head. Earthy malts and dusty hops to the nose. Half-sweet malts in flavour with hints of herbal hops. Dark bitter endnotes. Quite alright (Tromsø, 01.05.2012).

JorisPPattyn (7875) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2007
Chestnut to Coca-Cola colour; good yellowish head. Very nice, fresh hops nose, mixed with a very obvious and remarkable lemonbalm aroma. Very hoppy taste, a bit of cigar ashes, melanoidins; wood & tannines retronsal. Smoke coming up after a while, both in nose and taste. Quite well-bodied, even some alcohol for its meagre 5.3%. A very good, very original Swedish ale, well worth searching. Thanks to IKEA traveler Stefaan

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2007
Smallish brown head. Deep red body with ongoing carbonation. Sweetish, mealy roasty caramel aroma with hop notes. Dry watery resiny burnt malt taste with smoky yeasty notes. Sharpish mouthfeel. Bitter, burnt almond aftertaste. Very nice. (0.5l bottle at Oliver Twist.)

Rastacouere (6125) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2007
A grainy, spicy, toasty nose where the blueberry jam, milk chocolate and tomato seeds form an original and hard to describe nose. Quite tight. Following in the same registry, the palate is malty, with a dose of earthy hops and wild flowers, roots toi follow up. Rather salty (celery salt) bitterness. Original flavours in a toasted malt foundatrion. A bit more residual sugars than I’d want, especially that the body does not put them to good use, feeling quite airy and paradoxally creamy yet foamy, never biting, but never full. Lager-like mouthfeel.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2008
Bottled. Dark brown, rich, malty. A nice piney and hoppy dryness. Dryness dominates in the finish. A well balanced, moreish ale.
