Dark reddish amber with a tiny tan head. Smoky and fruity notes. Malt, fruit and smoke. Full body with a nice balanced after taste.

Den här ölen gillade jag, kroppen är så slät och krämig att jag blir alldeles till mig. Smaken bär inslag av karamell, rostad malt, sötma och en svag ton av rökighet. Det här är helt enkelt en bra och välbalanserad sak.

330 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours vinous deep reddish brown with a very small golden brown head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and malty with caramel, biscuits, raisins, prunes, wood, banana liqueur, sweet dark bread, slightly dry grass, resin, toffee and alcohol. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter and tiny metallic with sweet dark bread, raisins, prunes, hay, charred wood, alcohol, alcohol, biscuits, christmas fruit cake, moist soil and hints of cherries in brandy. Mouthfeel is round, slightly sticky sweet, vinous, flat and medium bodied. Finish is sweet, tiny bitter and tiny sour with sweet dark bread, raisins, prunes, charred wood, alcohol, moist soil and lemon zest. They’re close to something good here. A pity it’s completely flat and slightly unbalanced.

Pyrmir (5615) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 330 ml bottle. Dark brown with orange head. Heavy malt aroma with burnt sugar, some basement notes. Full body with a kind of thick feeling to it. Taste: alcohol, plums, sour coffee. Almost no carbonization.

SirLimpsalot (3817) - SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2012
En mycket spritig doft. Smaken är ganska tung med stora (nästan lite väl stora) toner av soya. Här fins även kryddor och en smak av arrak. Ganska söt och allt för obalanserad. Kanske blir bättre med några år på nacken.

Bottle (SBWF2012)
Caramel aroma. Sweet palate, smooth, gentle carbonation. Mashy and mesy. More a schwarz than an ale. Sub-par for these guys. Lesson: don’t pretend you know what a Scotch Ale is.

Abrakarl (422) - SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2012
Disappointing head I have to say, barely half a finger. Muddy colour like swamp water. Sweet, murky almost like fudge aroma. Taste is a pleasant surprise. Sweet, similar to the aroma. Pretty good but not sure I will drink it again since there are so many good beers out there.

VsXsV (3970) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle. Almost clear brown liquid with minimal off-white head. Aroma of caramel, raw sugar, butter, dark fruit and grain. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of grain, caramel and raw sugar. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Quite allright.

Peter_L (1244) - SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 Djupt mörkt kopparfärgad. Rökig doft med inbäddad sötma och karamell. Rökigheten går igen i smaken. Lång eftersmak.

SaintMatty (6871) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle - Dark brown with red tinges and a slight haze. Dundee cake (how apt!), marzipan and almonds in the aroma. Rich taste with notes of roasted malt, fruitcake and caramel.
