Strykzone (5896) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Medium brown slightly cloudy body with a nice one finger active tan head. Musty malt and hop aroma with caramel and dark fruit. Quite nice. Flavor is bitter dry hop with the malt taking a secondary role. There is a bit of anise as well.

KnutAlbert (6397) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown, fine sourness, nutty, very dry finish. Dark malt, grain, real wintery stuff, but it’s not too strong for having a few, either. This would be great with sopups and stews, maybe a bottle in the stew as well?

baggio (329) - norrtälje, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2008
500ml bottle. Dark brown/red with a nice creamy lace. Smells of licorice, herbs, cocca. Taste of coffee, citric notes, bread, nuts and metal. Quite refreshing and a nice kick of hops at the end.

pxii (12) - Stånga, Gotland, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2008
500 ml Bottle. Dark brown color with a thick head. Malty smooth taste, almost sweet taste with fruity aroma. It has a great carry that makes you feel the taste for quite a while. Spring or Autumn warmer would suit it better then Winter warmer. =)

nearbeer (4379) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 4, 2008
0.5l. Clear, dark copper with ruby tinges and a five-finger head that lasts forever. A bit of initial skunk fades to reveal a funky earthy-spiced malt and salty leather aroma that seems to have a hint of wild garlic as well! Raisin-molasses, winter-spiced caramel, spruce resin, dried wood, toasted nut, cocoa, apple, and crisp, bitter green herbs are some standouts among the medley of flavors. The medium body is smooth and finishes crisply dry. Excellent brew.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 23, 2008
2007 Bottle - Meh, light for a winter warmer, heavy for something year round, kinda in limbo. Malty and sweet, yeasty aroma, flavor is of bitter fruit and subdued coffee. Kinda metallic , average brew...

deft (84) - SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2008
50cl bottle at home. Red/brown color with medium tan head. Sweet smell, with nuts and bread. Taste is bitter and a bit hoppy and a long bitter aftertaste. I’ve had several of these and under the right conditions this one is wonderful.

mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown colour with beige head. Refreshing and a bit fruity on the nose - hops, some dried fruits and liquorice. Flavour is mostly about the hops. Also some roasted malts with some dried fruits (without the sweetness). The finish is quite dry and bitter, The aroma was superior to the flavour.

jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2008
Lots of cascade in the nose. Taste also hoppy with a citric theme along with acidic apples and hops. A bit thinner than I would have liked it to be.
