Pyrmir (3189) - 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 (2058) - 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.

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 16, 2012
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 (278) - 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 (2140) - Linköping, 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 (582) - 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 (5078) - 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.

Frovigalning (2876) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2012
Sample at a tasting. Strong smell and fairly boozey with notes of cognac and plum brandy. Similar taste. This was too boozey for my taste but I have a feeling it will appeal to allot of people.

ekstedt (5316) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear deep chestnut with a tiny brief head. Sugary and caramelly malt aroma with some fudge and clear smoked aromas. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Sweet with low to medium bitterness. Without the smoed aromas I could have enjoyed this a lot.

Marduk (2445) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2012
Tap @ SBWF 2012. Hazy deep brown color. Small head. Caramel, roast, hops, malty notes in aroma. Hops, malty, mild smoky/roast, yeast, sweet, faint fruity in flavor. Medium bitter ending. I can’t say I get alcohol in taste, but certainly feel some strength running down my throat.
