3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks Jeff!!!!! Ruby brown with a small skiff floating on top what is pretty good for the 12%. Sweet yet intensely sour apple candy, oak, sock like funk. What do the malts smell like..... I can’t but my finger on it. Sweet apple with a nice alcohol warming finish. Caramel, candy sugar, perfume, apples, wood, more stuff with stuff that taste like stuff. Good stuff!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Den Rock Liquor Mart. Aroma is sweet bready malt with dark fruits, wheat, esters, alcohol. Appearance is hazy dark brown, between iced tea and cola. Small, 1/2-finger width noisy, foamy, off-white head with poor retention, no lacing, no sparkle. Taste is sweet malts and fruits, strong alcohol and late toffee. Palate is full bodied with thick texture, late lively carbonation and dry finish. Overall, the strong fruity/ester sweetness is a bit cloying for me--not a knock on the beer but likely more about the whole style. Still good overall and I’m glad I tasted the gold standard for the style.

Pours dark with an aggressive head, which quite quickly settles. Strong coffee aroma and roasted malts. A hint of plumbs and some sweet honey notes in the aroma as well. Strong sweet first impression, followed by a very strong and with a more aggressive CO2 level pronounced roasted feel. Full mouth taste. An excellent body, which gives way to a slightly bitter finish through roastiness. The feeling you are left with when drinking this beer is... Being full :)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky dark brown color with creamy, beige head. Aroma is yeasty with lots of dark fruit character. You still get some of the wheat beer components like banana and clove but also the dried fruits like raisins and dates. Taste starts sweet and slightly boozy with lots of yeast esters. There is some bitterness on the finish and continues in the aftertaste but mostly it’s a sweet, syrupy beer. Body is heavy and quite smooth, with a good amount of carbonation. The alcohol level plus the intense yeast character make the beer feel a bit cloying but overall it’s a nice, complex tasting beer.

Powerful dried banana in aroma with some sweet sourness and caramel. Sweet dark dried fruits in taste with a touch of alcohol. In some aspects similar to St. Bernardus 12 and Rochefort 10 in taste. Good beer as digestive.

Licorice, rye, Christmasy boogie. Dark atmosphere. Thick body. Luscious. After careful sipping the bottom yeast is poured in and the whole shebang intensifies. Which is nice. Too strong for me. I’m weak. Still awesome.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Served in teku. Bottled in October 2012. Pours with beige and rocky head, which very quickly reduces to tiny layer. Colour is very intense, dark ruby, very clear. Delicious aroma, lots of dried fruits, raisins, cherry, vanilla, toffe, dark chocolate and hints of woodiness as well as sourness (grapes). Very pleasant and encouraging. Before taste, you feel the power of this beer, its not alcoholic but very heavy. Taste is not disappointing, full of sweet maltiness, cherry, distinct bitterness and very long finish. Its really sticky as well. Great beer, very complex and uncompromising.

Bottle to wine glass. Dark brown coke color. Small foamy head dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is sweetness malt and clove and raisins. Sweetness, yeast, raisin, alcohol with pleasant bite. Sticky but smooth. Medium carbonation that dissappears. Chunky yeast sediment in bottle. A nice change of pace.

Mestadels små bubblor, Beize skumkrona väldigt mörk siraps/amber färg. Söt doft av olika torkade bär såsom plommon, russin m.m. Söt, seg sirapsaktig smak med lite knäck & kola, även här torkade bär, enkel ton av kaffe i eftersmak.
