small frothy offwhite head. fair lacing. fully diminishing. medium densigy thick dark reddish-brown body. aroma: moderate malt, caramel, mik chocolate, raisin, ruby pot, wood, alcohol. if: moderate sweet light bitter. ff: moderate sweet bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, chalky finish. Dulçor maltado, frutas secas, alcoólico. Vinho do porto no paladar e no aquecimento alcoólico. Forte presença alcoólica mascara um pouco o amargor. Lembra Barley Wine. Leve amargor gredoso surge na ultima metade da cerveja, já livre do álcool, mas sem agregar muito ao conjunto (estava melhor sem ele). Amargor cresce mais, ficando um pouco desagradável.140 s

50 cl systembolaget. En kraftigt smakade ale som sitter som ett smäck framför vilken fotbollsmatch som helst.

solidfunk (4493) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Oakey and a little boozy. Some caramelized malt and a bit of a basement aroma. Pours hazy mahogany without a lot of head or lacing. Some citrus peel in the flavor. Slight astringency in finish. Not super exciting. Bottle from Chevy chase.

HammerTroll (595) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 24, 2014
Dark brown color with red hue, small tan fast disappearing head. Aroma of berries, raisin, dark fruits, brown sugar, roasted malts, caramel, honey and maybe a bit oaky. Noticeable presence of alcohol. Medium to heavy sweetness, slightly bitter. Medium body, soft carbonation, creamy texture. Long sweet boozy finish.

Vells (758) - Riga, LATVIA - SEP 20, 2014
Weird one, but after a few sips gets quite good. Lovely malt background, caramel with quite intense fruitiness, berries, bit acetone, weird mix of coffee tobacco. Light sweetness wit some sourness and decent bitterness. Feels bit unbalanced, but its enjoyable anyways

chinchill (2148) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Dark red brown with a decent head. Toffee and medium malts on the nose. Rich and pleasant but not very complex malty flavor. Way better than Chocolate Old Tom.
