delnoche (456) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - NOV 10, 2009
33cl bottle poured into a Westmalle Trappist glass. Amber brown with a small brown head. Subtle malty aroma. Sweet malty flavor, caramel, dark fruit. Bitter finish, odd flavor to it. Interesting beer but not that special.

madquacker (1052) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2009
Brown with a decent head. Raisens and fruit over a not over the top base. Nice but not spectacular.

FatPhil (9618) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 28, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2009 330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Reddy, lightly hazy, brown, with a brief head. Slightly sweet, thin and metallic aroma. Crisp carbonation, retronasals a bit alcoholic, but quite pleasantly grainy. Taste a touch yeasty, fairly richly roasted grains, some liquorice. Bitterness quite biting and potent - leaves a tingle in the mouth, exacerbated by the carbonation certainly. Long finish pleasantly grainy. Initially a bit wanting in a few dimensions, it improves as it warms, and the various components work together synergistically.

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 4, 2009
Bottled 33cl. Appearance: It pours a hazy nut brown beer with a huge, nicely remaining light beige head. Beautiful lacework. Aroma: The nose is very sweet with hints of caramel, spices (cinnamon and nutmeg), fruits (plums, peaches, raisins and banana), jam tarts, molasses, fennel, carrots and marmite. Yeasty. Flavor and palate: Sweet. Huge amounts of cinnamon, molasses, plums, carrots, fennel and marmite showing up. Yeasty. Medium to full bodied. Low bitterness. Sweet finish with lingering hints of yeast and plums. Overall impression: Very nice with sophisticated spicy, fruity components.

Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2009
330ml green bottle with a long, thin neck. Bought at Vinmonopolet a long time ago (bb.29.09.09). Medium, off-white head. Deep amber-brown body. Mild malty aroma with a discreet touch of yeast. Flavour of fruit-filled, sweet malts, slightly roasted. Not enough bitterness in the finish to counter all the sweetness. Foamy in the mouth (Tromsø, 21.02.2009).
