Vignale (3086) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2011
Mahognyfärgad med lågt skum som bildar gardiner på glaset. Alkoholångande söt doft med mycket malt och torkad frukt. Fyllig munkänsla, en riktig malt- och melassbomb som nog behöver några år i källaren. Den blommiga humlen lyckas ändå göra sig påmind, plommonkärnor, kvitten och någon besk marmelad finns där och den peppriga efterbeskan sitter kvar en stund. Eftersmaken är ganska torr. Lite obalanserad kanske men ändå riktigt trevlig redan nu.

tkrjukoff (4291) - SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle 33 cl, Kris Wines. Pours brown black with nice ruby tones and a great tanned creamy head leaving lacing. Aroma is dark fruits, fidges, malty, alcohol, chocolate and a bit vinous. Flavor is fruity, vinous, a bit sweet, bitter, port wine and slightly phenolic. Finishes bitter, vinous with a warming alcohol touch.

NordicV (1774) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2011
Coca Cola-färgad öl med ljusbrunt skum. Doft av melass, portvin. Smaken är inte som jag minns den från ett år sedan. Mindre portvin. En bismak av läder. Felsmak? Alkoholhetta.

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget, Stockholm, Sweden. Slightly grassy with a bit of sweet caramel on the nose. Looks almost black unless you hold it up to the light, then it’s slightly red. Taste is medium sweet with medium bitterness, not all that exciting. Mouthfeel is quite carbonated and medium thickness.

aphelion1979 (172) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2011
Pours a lovely dark ruby colour with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, although not particularly strong aroma. Taste is a "knock out". Strong malt and hops, nice sticky mouth feel, sweet taste of port. Very well balanced, but very strong, and good heat from the alcohol. Massively deep and complex (almonds, port, dark cherries, chocolate, brandy, raisins). A proper winter warmer..great stuff!!

bluevegie (3070) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2011
Notice dried fruits and lovely warming alcohol, very easy to drink but be careful of the alcohol content.
