(500 ml bottle: Obtained 01-Mar-06 in trade with bogdi1, thanks Juha!) Dry, earthy and moderately roasty with kind of a mocha-like finish, but also balanced with a very herbal, hoppy, bitter kick that really becomes my lasting impression of this beer. The nose really emphasizes the herbal nature of this beer, with the lightly roasty aroma very much in a supporting role. Body is medium but thanks to the herbal nature, the palate is fairly clean for a dark beer. Carbonation is very light, but there’s enough zing on the palate to keep the mouthfeel lively. Cloudy, brick red body. No head on the pour because there was barely a wimper when I opened the bottle. The most I get is a slight filmy layer forming on the pour, and that fully dissipates within a few seconds. As I keep trying more of the Scandanavian beers, I’m getting a sense that herbs play a much larger part in their beer-making than in most other areas of the world. It’s different, but quite good.

pivo (2631) - GERMANY - DEC 23, 2005
Full big nose of caramell, raisins. Dark brown color, quick scumy head. Toasted malt body, sharp quick spicey end. Woody too. Watery body. An alcohol effect emerges through the glass.

Thanks a lot Santa Jonas - it is a treat every time we open one of your bottles you sent. Nice roasted malt nose. Opaque colored - nearly no head visible. Very intense licorice, nutts and moccha taste. Charcoal aftertaste - well., why not, it is a winter ale and winter is heating time ;-)

Ingevara (850) - SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2005
Redish brown. No head, low carbonation and a tremendous, deep, lingering aroma. Lots of hops. The flavor has a lot of wood and bread. Exellent bitterness. The label promises "the beginning of a tradition"! Looking forward to that.

(Bottled) Dark cola color with a very small, but quite lasting head. Interesting, spicy aroma with some sourness. Dryish and bitter, slightly acidic flavor with roasted malt and spices. Light to medium-bodied, sourish palate with quite low carbonation.
