Sparf (239) - Östersund, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2011
2011-11-09. Color like burned sugar moving towards deep red. Fruity aroma, sweet, and leaning towards sherry. Very malty taste. Rather watery and uninteresting. Aftertaste is slightly spicy with a weak yet pleasant bitterness.

BarossaLuke (552) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 9, 2011
Quite dark amber in colour, aroma has loads of dark fruits, prunes and dates with raisins too. Very rich and slightly warming mouthfeel, but the alcohol is really in check, obviously very well brewed. A very malt driven beer, with a lot of complex flavours happening.

För att vara så alkoholstark, så mörk och så fint buteljerad är Old Tom överraskande fjunig. Den smakar ungefär så som man har anledning att förvänta sig, bara att volymen och styrkan är nedskruvad till ett skval i bakgrunden.

mile (3830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 30, 2011
Bottle. Dark amber, small to average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and caramel sweet aroma, some dark fruits and alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and sweet flavor, caramel dark fruits, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and sweet, some caramel and fruitiness, alcohol. Caramel sweet strong ale - too much alcohol in the finish.

mikkopen (1059) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 30, 2011
330 ml bottle. Clear, dark reddish brown colour, thin light beige head. Sweetish, slightly alcoholic and roasted aroma of caramel malt and dark fruits. The flavour is also sweetish, roasted malty, with dark fruits and a moderately bitter chocolaty finish. Nice.

TEJA (2469) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden. Thick lasting brown head. Deap dark burgundy red color. Huge caramell aroma and some liqurish. The caramell also dominate the taste with a small warming alcohol. Good wintervarmer but low drinkabillity.

This is one of the finest ales I have had the pleasure of tasting, and I found it on a shelf in Asda!! The rich smooth feel of this drink is a fantastic sensation, the after taste resembles marmite but only lingers for a second, considerably alcholic, perfectly balanced, this is real gem!!

ration (2138) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours black/dark copper with a nice head that disappears. Aroma strong caramel with a hint of chocolate malts. Taste slightly sweet, alcohol tastes though, but not in a bad way. Not Bad.
