@Gyllenbock: en svag doft men en trevlig fyllig smak med toner av torkat frukt. Kunde varit mycket mer av allt. Torr eftersmak.

medium body, Dark, at first not so impressive, but as it got warmer in the glass it developed and whoops it was gone. I really liked it, not so strong tastes, more subtle,

Uts: rødbrun, lite beige skum, lite kullsyre. Noe gjærrester og disig (proteiner?).
Duft: mørk frukt og rosiner, sødmefylt og innbydende. Maltsødme og hint av krydret humle.
Smak: føles ganske fyldig i munnen, søt og tydelig alkohol, nellik og solid bitterhet i ettersmaken. Litt dårlig balansert. Albertsen (76) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2013
No smell at all(som sweetness). Red, brown color. Incredible. What a turnaround. Beautiful sweetness, mild bitterness. Vørterøl? Refreshing. Good. Mild. Great.

Aroma is yeast, malts and mint. The flavor is juniper berries, fruit, malts and a mix of tart and tangy in the finish. daje (4436) - NORWAY - JAN 14, 2013

Bottle at Haandverkerstuene, winter 2011.
Dark amber body, offwhite head. Flowery aroma with malt, roasty malt taste with caramel, vinegar and hops. Bitter finish, hidden by lasting sweetness.
Bottle traded with Yngwar. It pours hazy reddish amber with a medium bubbly of white head. The aroma is ripe fruit, light yeast, caramel, malt and some brown sugar. The flavour is ripe dark fruit, dark berries, yeast, light cheese, caramel and malt. Nice. Ernest (7696) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is cloudy dark amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (cookie), with notes of eucalyptus, juniper, rosemary, Listerine, etc.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Rather off-putting medicinal nose...too much spice and not enough beer. Slightly better in the mouth, where it’s fairly balanced and creamy. thewolf (12597) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2012
