Unde (329) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Amber colour with delicate head which sadly dissolves quickly. Aroma has nuts, toffee, chocolate and some wooden notes. Taste is sweet with chocolate, toffee and dark wooden flavors and syrup. Full body with quite low carbonation. For a price tag of +40 € this beer doesn’t stand its ground.

omhper (19194) - 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.

Bottle @ Really Late Ulfborg Summer Tasting, 2012. Pours clear ruby amber with a small white head. Nutty and hoppy. Quite a lot of bread. Smooth and dry. The price is stupid but the quality is fine.
