3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, pours a dark brown color with a tan head, nice malt notes. Starts off sweet with dark fruits and slight molasses notes, but finishes fairly dry, the body was a bit light than I imagined. Not a bad brew at all. Great lacing as well.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown, tight cappuccino head, stays for ages. Aroma starts sweet, and brown maltiness, some fruits. Hints of smokeyness which develop into burnt rubber (but not in an unpleasant way). Mellow sweet burnt maltiness in the mouth, quite perfumed in some ways, and the burntness is getting bitter at the same time. Yet it’s all incredibly well balanced. Only weakness is that it’s very sweet, but I didn’t find that to actually be negative at all. No trace of alcohol, could be cranked up a bit to make it a bit more serious and wineous.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 22 Sep 2007) Dark reddish brown colour with frothy, pale brown head. Fruity nose with red berries, dark fruit and hints of brown sugar. Malty, fairly sweet taste with dried fruit, raisins, prunes, brown sugar, caramel and a spicy, sweetish finish. A bit odd: citric notes give it a position somewhere between an oud bruin and a dubbel. Nice mixture.
