COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

The beer has light malty and yeasty aroma mixed with a hint of grape or raisin. The light brown almost off white head has a very fizzy apperance the lacing follows the beer about 2 inches above the beer and stays in the glass well after the beer is finished. The body is fairly clear with a brown amber slightly red color. I would describe the flovor of this beer as light to moderate, with moderate sweet and acidic components through out with a short almost acidic finish. The beer has avery light and watery mouth feel. Overall a good well blanced beer that I wouldn’t turn away but not seek out.

At Three cellars tasting. Caramel Brown color with caramel/sweet aroma. Had somewhat of a dry finish. Not too bad, on line with the Tremens I had 10 minutes earlier.

Pretty dissapointing for me. Thin mouthfeel. Pretty harsh one dimensional flavours. Pity as Tremens is one of my all time favourites

ekstedt (7007) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2008
Draught at Delirium Café, Göteborg, Sweden. Dark copper with a medium beige head. Sweet, spicy and perfumy malt aroma with oranges, chocolate, clove and coriander. Medium bodied and smooth with soft carbonation. Too sweet with low bitterness.

Beautiful appearance!Dark reddish color with an excellent head. The aroma is complex-spicey of caramell, fruits and roasted malt. The flavour is perfect: raisins, coffe and caramell with hint of chocolate, good balanced carbonation. The aftertaste is smooth like a swiss chocolate. Really good, the pink elephants have knocked out me.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - FEB 28, 2008
Ma che sorpresa che sorpresa; che la stappo e annuso il collo della bottiglia e mi arriva una botta pazzesca di albicocca/pesca fresca spiazzante mista a zuccherosi (canna) toni o caramello però di una dolcezza proprio stramba che quando la verso non so bene cosa aspettarmi. Ma il colore spacca il banco dello stanco: c’è un scuro nero con schiuma beige mooolto chiara e decisamente abbondante e persistente e l’aroma è lo stesso ma più smorzato e bilanciato dall’alcool. Nel sapore è un sentore veloce, subito subentra un qualcosa di scuro, quasi caffè comunque abbastanza tostato, che si confonde con il piccante dell’alcool in una frizzantezza forse esagerata sostenuta da un corpo importante ma non troppo mapposo. Oi, è buona. Manco parente della sua versione diurna. Bravi bravi

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2009 The alcohol content is 8.5 %. Lot of dark fruits in the aroma. Medium body with very intense fruity and spicy, almost wine-like taste. Excellent!
