blankboy (6633) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2007
Bottle (500ml) shared with and courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a cloudy deep orange-amber with an average size diminishing creamy tan head. Dry aroma of lightly roasted malt, toffee, a hint of chocolate, some nuts and herbal hops. Flavour: Dry, slightly roasty with toffee, some chocolate and a herbal bitter kick. Medium bodied. Pretty decent, I’d have it again.

jercraigs (8666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle @ Cole’s Christmas Tasting 2007. Mahogany brown body with a small beige head. Odd aroma, light fruit notes and tangy malt character. (6+) Similar fruit and malt in the flavour, light caramel notes. Average palate. Not unpleasant but fairly unremarkable.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 Re-rate. Dark amber, creamy tan head. Yeast, cellar, and coffee in aroma. Fruity flavour of dried cherries with notes of dark bread, dark chocolate and yeast. Light to medium bodied. Notes of piney hops, yeast and toffee in the slightly astringent finish. Better than last years version (2.9).

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Sampled from bottle at Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2004 (#20).
Thin head, clear dark brown body. Mild sweet aroma of chocolate, cream, flower, straw and fruit. Roasted malt flavor with fruity notes. Too sharp in the taste and not very balanced. Drinkable but nothing special.

larsniclas (6145) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2004
Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival 2004. Dark amber. Malty and spicy. Rather dry and papery with yeast.

MiP (14488) - 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.

Rastacouere (6161) - 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.

MrBeachtwig (54) - Sandared, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle. Slightly orange colour with light head. Both aroma and taste is a bit artifical, but I also sent some coffee. I expect much more body from a winter ale.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Pours a transparent copper orange with a well-lacing light tan head. Aroma of earthy, dark caramel malts with some English hops. Starts semi-sweet with an earthy grainy maltiness and some citrusy flavor hops toward a more bitter, thinner and drier finish. Seems like a pretty standard ESB.

Sammy (9685) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2008
Doesn’t look like much, laggerish light after initial foam.Somewhat cheesy aroma. The taste is somehwhat hoppy and refreshing. A natural casklike carbonation. Bit of light lemonlime aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel.
