Bottle from Systembolaget, cellared for about a year. Pours dark copper brown with a faint beige head. Aroma and taste of dates, figs, light nuttiness. Dried plum, clean dark caramel. Smooth and creamy texture. Pretty nice overall with a slight tint of booze. mikeyo1 (827) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle @ home. Cellared for two years. Dark copper to brown color with medium head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with red fruits, intense caramel, dark syrup, herbs, spices, raisins, plums and milk chocolate. Taste has sweet red fruits, dark syrup, deep caramel, plums, wood, milk chocolate. Body is medium to big. High carbonation, a bit sticky. Finish is drier and smooth with lingering port wine like fruitiness. Nicely balanced. coachd (836) - Missouri, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Chocolatey aroma with plum and booze. Amber color with lots of sediment in the pour. Sweeter than most quads with rich dark fruit flavor, plum and oak. Slight booze burn aftertaste. Good smooth palate. This was really good. Hopmaestro (1653) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2017
Aroma is massive from dark fruits such as plums, figs and raisins. Sweet malty and some nuts as well. Taste is sweet, dark toffee, raisins and a touch of yeast. Light brandy notes and also a touch of warming alcohol. I had one of these earlier this year, and let me tell you, it gets better with some rest time in the stash. Andgun87 (44) - - FEB 3, 2017
Matured 1 and a half year on bottle which was probably a little too long. A great fruity aroma lingers in the background and gives a hint of what may have been. The taste is also flawed by the aging, with notes of old paper.

För att vara en Brown Ale är den helt ok. Tror nog att jag hade lagrat den för länge, 1 år och 3 månader. Kändes platt och smakerna var för svaga. Lite besviken.

Dark amber color boozy head. Big aromas estery bubble gum, caramel, slight perfume ester, slight alcohol. Flavors medium alcohol, caramel, bread, slight bubble gum. Medium sweet. Not to complex but decent. Not a memorable abt. Gluepot (640) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2017
Big, complex and well crafted. A dense off-white head on a mahogany body. The nose is sumptuous, featuring sweet caramel malt, spice, citrus and tropical fruit, and a fruity tartness. The taste is predictably complex and layered. Dense Caramel and toffee tasting malts, dark fruit, candied fruit, plums, classic spices and a solid element of Belgian yeast (with a slight bubblegum note) add to the blend. Sweet but tart, dense and slick, this is another DDC classic. Carlisle (745) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle. Pours cloudy ruby-brown with light beige head and lacing. Nose of plums and dried cherries. Cherry skins with some apple and plum notes. Bready malt and caramel follows. Sweetness gives way to a semi-dry note in the finish.

Flaska. Nougatfärgad med ett medelstort smutsvitt skum. Dofter av marsipan, karamell, läder och frukt. Samma återkommer i smaken tillsammans med en värmande alkohol och lätt av vanilj. Rund och len munkänsla. Mycket bra!
