500ml bottle from Systembolaget, Hornstull. Dark brown / ruby with a small thin beige head that still leaves good lacing. Roasted malt aroma, licorice, cumin and bread. Rounded, mid-sweet mouthfeel. Toffee and caramel taste, sweet licorice, nutmeg and dried fruit. Sweet finish.

linusb (353) - SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2016
2012 A: Deep deep brown with a hint of red to the colour. Small white/light brown head that disappears right away. Leaves a thin lacing at the edge of the glass. N: chocolate, caramel, hint of coffee, orange peel, small hint of dates, cinnamon, tamarind T: Tobacco, coffee, some dark fruits, plum, juniper berry, O: Quite promising on the nose but disappointing taste to it... Not very properly stored though, been sitting in my refrigerator for 3 years...

Hopmaestro (986) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2015
Aroma of dried fruits, spices and darker bread. Taste is chocolates, raisins dry fruit notes, some tar and licorice. More complex than I thought. Really nice brew.

Roger60 (143) - - DEC 23, 2015
SB beställning, flaska. Grått skum. Grov arom och mer förfinad smak. Lite märkligt intryck. Torr lite återhållsam. Bättre än betyget...

inbirraveritas (1418) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 23, 2015
Bottled, 500 ml. Deep dark brown/ruby one with a small beige head on it, which diminishes completely. Nose and aroma of chocolate, dried fruits and earth, mouthfeel is slick to syrupy. Relative long, earthy, dried fruity, warming finish. Enjoyable, robust brew.

Subliminal64 (72) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2015
Smells of chocolate, stout and ale aromas. Pours a dark amber colour. No head. Taste of chocolate and mild spices. Almost a mix between a chocolate stout and ale. Almost no carbonation Overall I was not disappointed. This is exactly what I would like to sip on a cold day leading up to Christmas. Will buy again. MB The Beer Bearon
