330ml brown bottle. Chestnust brown pour, quite heady - tan coloured foam. Good creamy lacing left behind. Sweet malt aroma, light toffe/brown sugar. Initally sweet on the tounge, brown sugar, light raisin, caramel. Chewy, medium body. Mild carbonation. Nice ale, a bit sweet, but quite drinkable.

skoisirius (1882) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle and tap. Another mediocre brew from Petrus. Nice sweet fruity malts aspect though. Taste a bit more like a bock almost because of the thin body.

Bottle. Brown sugar and prune aroma. Dark brown with a thin film of a head. Strong brown sugar/toffee malt and prune/raisin flavor with light astringency. Nice drinking beer.

From the bottle, pours deep ruddy brown with a cream colored head. The nose is beautiful, with raisins, brown sugar, caramel. The flavor is on the fruity side, with plum and dried fruits, along with a bit of toffee and brown sugar. Quite a creamy mouthfeel. Very nice.

nearbeer (4291) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 20, 2008
33 cl. Nearly opaque mahogany with ruby highlights and a two-finger lasting head. Aroma is earth-spiced raisin-date bread, molasses, and caramel icing. Flavor is similar to the aroma, with a finish of slight sour cherry, cumin, and brown sugar. Medium body is smooth, acidic-tingly, and finishes dryish. Excellent dessert beer.

33 cl bottle at Dalane Brygghus, Egersund, Norway. Dark brown color, moderate off-white/beige head. Aroma is sweet, with a bit yeast/sourness. Flavor is sweet malt, dark fruit, hints of yeast and hops, nice sourness. I like this one!

Bottled. Poured clear, ruddy brown with a stately cap of beige head that stuck to the glass well. The aroma was sweet as could be with candied darker fruits at the forefront.. light peppery yeast impression.. sweetness really dominated, though. The flavor had sticky darker fruits throughout, again it was hard to get beyond that.. I liked the yeast used in here, and there was a very full, rich caramelization at the core.. light spicage and plenty more sweetness on the finish.. tasty. Medium-bodied and sweet on the palate with well-used yeast.. this was almost like drinking candy.
