Marsiblursi (3001) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2012
(Bottle) Pours dark copper amber with an off-white to sand coloured head. The aroma is really fruity/estery (reminds me a bit of canned fruits) with caramelized white sugar, honey and syrup up front (reminds me a bit of canned fruits). Hops bring spices, earth, wood, flowers and oranges. Undertones of sticky fudge, wet crisp bread, plums, resins figs and vanilla as well as a hint of grapes. Light Port vinous on the nose. The flavour is medium sweet, light to medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of caramel, fruits/dried fruits, honey, spices, light wood, earth, oranges, crisp bread and a touch of grape tartness. The mouthfeel is round, super soft and robust with a light carbonation. Oranges juice, hints of dried fruits, mild spice hops, honey and caramel on the finish. Medium to full bodied.

omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2011
Bottled. Clear nut brown, small head. Wild strawberries and caramel. Mid sweet with medium-full body and rounded mouthfeel. Caramel and spicy hops, quite bitter finish. Pretty good, relaxed strong ale with some depth. Comes across a bit ordinary, considering the high price and very fancy packaging.
