Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Cremig-malziger Geruch, deutlich alkoholisch. Süßer Malzantrunk, Alkohol ist definitiv nicht erkennbar. In den Vordergrund stellt sich ein Aroma aus vergorenen Früchten, etwas süß, weiter sehr malzig. Die Malzigkeit wird dunkler und cremiger, der Alkohol ist nun zu erahnen. Die Fruchtigkeit nimmt nun deutlich zu, das Malz zieht nach, eine herbe Note setzt ein. Hier ist das Bier sehr würzig und steigert sich immer weiter, bis es schließlich im Nachgeschmack nach und nach schwächer wird, die nun röstige Malznote bleibt als einziges konstant. Das Bier ist hier sehr würzig und stark, darauf wird man sanft vorbereitet. Überaus harmonisches, vollmundiges und leckeres Bier! Test vom 24.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,13,13,14,12,13 - 12,90

Maria (10130) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2008
Courtesy of Fonefan. It’s a dark, red mahogany color and the head is dense. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, raisin and other dried fruits. The flavour has sweetness, notes of raisin and other dried, dark fruits, candy sugar, caramel, malt and in spite of the 10% there is very little alcohol in the flavour. A pleasant beer to sip.

ekstedt (5355) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2007
Bottle (vintage 2002) from hildigöltur’s beer cellar (thanks!). Deep hazy mahogny with a minimal off-white head. Nutty, fruity, slightly roasted aroma with wooden notes. Soft mouthfeel with low carbonation. Very well balanced, the 10 % alcohol are remarkably well hidden.

Bottled. 2002. Thanks ekstedt. ’ Dark brown colour with moderate head. Tidbits, caramel and dried fruits in aroma. Rounded mouthfeel. Caramel, toast malts and tidbits with slight chocolatey edge. Medium-full body. Bit sweet, but not overly in my opinion.

Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry and Blankboy. Dark brown, small white head. Nice nutty, plum pudding aroma. Sweet nutty taste. Roast, toast, spicy - quite complex. A great sipper, thanks R.
