Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2008
Bottle. Huge bubbly beige head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Hazy dark amber color. Aroma of toasted malt, nutty, yeast, fruit. Over the palate came alcohol, mild pepper-spicy, caramel. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and mild alcoholic and malty smooth texture. Moderated sweet flavor with hint of bitter and acidic notes. Sweet malty and mild spicy warming alcoholic finish. Quit nice.

Courtesy of Yespr. It’s a dark, brown-golden beer with a huge, nice and creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, candy sugar and berries. The flavour has sweetness, notes of spice, berries, roasted malt, candy sugar and it ends on a sweet, dry, spicy and slightly bitter note.

Ober (2809) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2009 A dark red, almost brown colored beer, with a nice beige foamed head. The aroma has some cherry and dark fruits in it. Also some malts. The taste is spicey, a little pepper. Roasted malts, dark fruits like prune, with a touch of cherry and notes of light chocolate. A little bitternes in the back. A long staying warm feeling. A very good Grand Cru.

Turbid brown. healthy tight head. Rich malty aroma. Burnt rubber and warming liquorice. Full body. Straight from the beer sampo!

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Bottle. Pours a lovely red amber colour with a long-lasting thick cream-coloured foamy head. Looks smashing. Good aroma that brings to mind cake icing and fruit pastilles, with a dusty hint. The basis of the flavour is a rich fruitcake, malty flavour - all dried fruit and winter spices - with cinnamon and clove tinges. There is alcoholic warmth but it is not overdone. The palate is smooth and the taste lingers in the corners of your mouth. An enjoyable beer - I wish it came in bigger bottles!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2008
Bottled at Monks Café, Stockholm. Pours out in an almost cloudy brownish amber colour with a low creamy white foam. Fruity and yeasty aroma of almond paste, figs, raisins, cookies and berries. Really full-bodied with notes of figs, pepper, almond paste, dried oranges, brown sugar and cherry-skins. Long warming fruity and bit peppery finish of Seville oranges, figs, brown sugar, cayenne, raisins and mouth-frying alcohol. Tasty sipper for sure.
