[4/25/15] Bottle sample at a tasting at omhper’s place in Tyresö. Thanks omhper, AndySnow and hackobock for sharing great beers! 2007 bottle. Black with a small tan head. Nice aroma of chocolate, sherry, some dark fruits, and a bit of roast and coffee. Rather dry flavor with a sweetish note, and acidic touch, roast, some coffee, a bit of chocolate, oxidation, and a bit of fruitiness. Medium-bodied. Still nice. arminjewell (9757) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Pour out of bottle, big thanks to Aaron for this gem! Dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, coffee, hints of slight celery, hints of earth, oak, touch of dark cocoa, a bit off. Taste is a mix of oak, cocoa, roast, hints of dark fruit notes into a bit of veggie, a bit of cardboard, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Tasty, but probably better a few years ago. cubs (10775) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle @ home, courtesy of a chill Swedish trader. Black appearance with a pretty decent dark brown head. Kind of dusty, cocoa powder, cookie, milky aroma. Fairly light bodied. A hint of chow mein / celery. Dusty / earthy, dark chocolate flavor. Dang, this one has likely fallen off significantly.

En besvikelse, trodde att några år på nacken skulle förgylla smakupplevelsen men fylligheten saknas och den blir en aning för lättdrucken. kermis (18400) - Amsterdam-ish, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2012
