Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget, Malmö.
<b>[thank you, myrup]</b>
Pours nutty brown with a great, off-white head - almost looking like dirty whipped cream. Fine duration and lacing. Great bready malts aroma, some pine hops and general sweetness. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is lovely ashy, some roasted notes, good pine hoppiness and dryness. Really lovely and refreshing with plenty of hops to warm.

Maria (10173) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2009
It is beautiful, dark, red-brown with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, fruit, caramel, citrus and peach. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, licorice, fruit, spruce, citrus and caramel. The finish is very long. It is a complex and interesting beer.

FatPhil (9419) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 17, 2009
500ml bottle (Systembolaget, Stockholm) - shared with Mirjukka - thanks!
Rich rusty colour, healthy beige head. Really piney aroma, hinted towards floor cleaner. Crisp carbonation, but also immediately a massive hoppy bite. Possibly a little unbalanced towards the hops, they tingle the mouth and leave it dry and resiny. However, there’s some reasonable roasted malts cowering in the background. Finish from the hops is fruity and bitter, and very nice, but the acidity in the mouth is too much of a price to pay for that, I think.

adnielsen (9285) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Bottle @ home. Pours a dark maroon body with an almost non-existent tan head. Sweet fairly dark malty aroma with hints of red licorice, cherries, and other red fruits. Low carbonated, tangy, slightly bitter, red fruity, medium malty body. Sort of sour, sweet, and brown malty finish. Not as strong of flavor as most English Strong Ale.
