villevav (373) - FINLAND - NOV 14, 2015
Ruby brown, clear, dense white head. The aroma is dominated by sweet, but roasted barley malt. The taste begins sweet and malty, but turns dry and bitter towards the finish. Although the body is relatively full vis-à-vis the ABV, the palate is surprisingly refreshing due to lively carbonation. Well-balanced winter beer!

Oakes (13913) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2005
Bright dark chestnut colour. Aroma is toffeeish, slightly hazelnutty, with earthy & brown sugary accents. Rich, earthy, woody, nutty body with toffeeish overtones and a slight hint of diacetyl. Toasty, sweet, "peculier" finish.

Ingevara (867) - 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.

Shag (2723) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 24, 2007
A dark brown appearance with a ruby tint. A small sized beige head is present. The aroma is quite nice with some chocolate, raisins, molasses, and caramel. The flavor is a bit sweet with some milk chocolate, plums, raisins, and licorice and a hint of nutmeg. This is a complex beer to say the least. And a good choice for #1500!

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2008
Sweetish malts and hops on aroma. Mild roasty flavours and a hint of smoke to go with nice, rounded malts although not so full-bodied. Finishes off with lovely hopping that mostly takes over the flavour but still quite delicate. Class act this is. A nice winter session ale.

guzzler67 (1597) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Mahogany appearance with a fairly large, fast fading, tannish head and decent lacing. Dark fruit, molassas, soy sauce and caramel come through in the aroma. Sweet malty taste, subtly hopped, with notes of ripe fruit, nuts and toffee. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Finish turns drier with the hops being a little more apparent.

generallee08 (764) - New York, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Its head builds up tall and foamy. It is firm and rocky, light tan color and slow fading. A small thin cap hangs on till the very last sip. On the way down the glass it leaves some nice rings of lace. The body has a deep, very dark reddish amber/old copper color with some visible carbonation. The aroma has a modest presence of spicy/herbal hops with a hint of holiday spices and something citrusy. The flavor has a solid hop presence with citrus and spicy/leafy notes. The hops are supported by a mildly sweet and dark bready maltiness. Within it are also notes of brown sugar and a touch of cinnamon. In the finish hop flavor picks up and adds dryness and bit of bitterness. The body has a medium to full feel with a slick smooth texture and active tingly carbonation.

I think this à Nice ale for dark November evenings, full of taste.. Brownish, smells nice, sort of rosted, caramels, a full bodied taste .. Overall a good beer..
