Rune (8065) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2011
200ml draught. Shiny bright surface to amber-orange coloured body. Dark fruity smell, sweet and bitter. The flavour profile contains a fine blend of dark fruity hops and malty sweetness. Smooth and dry bitter ending with alcohol warmth. More than satisfying to my taste buds (happy drinking with other ratebeerians at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen 26.05.2011).

Hazy dark amber colour. Sweet fruity caramel alco aroma. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet with caramel and toasty malt indeed along with fruit and alcohol.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2011
Sampled from tap @Mikkeller. A near-clear dark amber beer, with a layer of beige bubbles on top. Initial aroma of alcohol-soaked dark fruits: Then a whiff of fruity/ light resinous hops, and grainy and caramelly malts. Full malty and very sweet. Caramel and fruit flavors with a sting of alcohol. Solid bitterness underneath. Quite sticky in the mouth. Alcohol heath and lingering bitterness in the finish.

phaleslu (6517) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Draft at the brewpub, split with a buddy. Pours a cloudy amber color with a tiny white head. Aroma is very fruit-forward, with notes of apples, raisins, cherries, sweet caramel malts, and plenty of brandy-like booze; there was something lactic throwing me off in the nose, though. It drops out of the flavor, fortunately, and booze leads, with caramel malts, wood, earthy hops, and sugar. Lingering bitterness and alcohol. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a boozy mouthfeel. Big and warming.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a slightly murky reddish tan with white head. Looks pretty English. Nose is doughy and lightly sweet. Strong malt notes and some English hops. It is starting to pick up some oxidation. Cardboard pokes through, as do some higher alcohols on taste. This would be interesting in a barrel, though preferably one that isn’t too wet. Not too bad.
