thegreenrooster (3269) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Pour is a dark red with a large white head. Aroma is full of oily hops and some roasted malts. Flavor is toffee and caramel with some earthyness and finishes bitter. After the swallow it leaves a coffee taste on the tounge. A soild beer for winter sipping.

Nice dark ruby, thin head. Fruity floral hops in the nose. Sweet buttery flavour with a lovely dry finish. Didn’t expect much, but this is excellent.

heemer77 (5106) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Deep amber body witha generous tan colored head. Black cherries, toffee and black tea are in the nose. There is also a hint of anise. The taste has notes of toasted almonds with some bread crust. There is also a little bit of toffee. The body is a little chewy with a nice roasted character in the finish. A decent winter warmer.

Rastacouere (6136) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 Bottle, Tegnérs Gömställe. Filtered orange pour wearing a quickly fading off-white head. Rather earthy malt profile bears a solid toastiness and faded milk chocolate flavors. The support hops also seem to be quickly fading away, leaving little aromas left, a faint floral appeal, yet the bitterness, nutty, leafy remains. Constantly smooth, this is from last winter, but it feels 2-3 years old at least, begun oxidation should sonn bring forward metallic notes I’m afraid and the body starts to get a bit loose.

Earthy, tea-like. Dry palate, but butterscotchy. Soft maltiness, toasty. Strawberry notes, gently herbal. Raising from 2.9 to 3.1.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2007
Nice clear dark amber with a large, creamy, lacy off-white head. Good hoppy aroma, lots of flowery hops, light caramel and toasty chocolate. Medium body, quite smooth, but the flavours are not too pronounced, light herbal hops, caramel and nuts. A solid, smooth finish rounds off a fairly faultless beer.

ekstedt (5579) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2007
Bottle. Pours reddish brown with firm and steady off-white head. Nice malty aroma, a little roasty, dried fruits, and eathy hops. A mild sweetness on the tongue which is balanced by a sturdy bitterness.

gnoff (7954) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2007
(Draught at Bishops Arms, Västra Hamngatan, Göteborg) Clear brown color, small tan to brown head. Fresh scent with a roasted touch. Hoppy bitter taste with some roasted coffee right in the beginning and then again in the aftertaste. Nice high bitterness. Medium mouthfeel.

Svesse (6234) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2006
(Bottle) Dark amber colour with ruby notes, huge off-white head. Fruity nose with toffee, caramel, some chocolate, cardamom, orange, herbs and lots of fresh hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with toffee, caramel, chocolate, spruce needles, orange, dark bread and spicy hops. Seriously hoppy finish. A bit unbalanced, but with a great hop character that makes my day.

MiP (13725) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2006
Draught, 5.3%. Very slight fruity aroma. Dark red/brown colour. Small, frothy white head. The flavour starts off roasted, turns a bit malty, then quickly bitter. Late roastedness in the aftertaste and slightly sugary.
