rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2005
Bottle sampled oct’05.
Cloudy rosehip red, with small white head.
Strong, dry, dark chocolate aroma, some grassy hops, and fruity sweetness.
Very dry, dark chocolate returns in flavor, together with sweet malts and hay. Alcohol and malts dominate aftertaste.
Bubbly, slightly acidic palate.
Very nice altogether. anders37 (26878) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2006

500 ml. brown bottle. Part of a vertical tasting held for my close friends.
Still awesome! 6 years old, and just hitting it’s stride. Tasty beer. Deep copper color, white head. Mostly malts in the flavors of this year’s batch, some hops in the background. It still needs a little aging though. KnutAlbert (6771) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2010
Bottle from the Fuller’s shop.
Vinous. Malty aroma with some caramel.
Toffee, grain and cereals, round and smooth.The sweetne4ss of the beer and the alcohol combine to make a round and full aroma. Some sharp hops in the tail.

Small offwhite head. Hazy amber body. Caramelly (very!) musty earthy aroma with old books notes. Dry-sweetish wooden caramelly taste with old books and linoleum notes. Mild rounded, smooth mouthfeel. Fullish body. Dry wooden old blanket and paper aftertaste with sugary sherry mint notes. Some sharpish hops in aftertaste. Absolutely outstanding! (0.5l bottle, shared by KnutAlbert.) OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle shared by KnutAlbert. Low, mostly lasting white head. Body is unclear, reddish-brown colored. Aroma is quite vinous with a distinct scent of grainy caramel, almost like an american Barley Wine. Taste has a strong malt body, caramelly, soft and rounded. Floral and minty tones, and hint of vanilla, mild pepper, wood and Cherry. A gentle bitterness in the backbone. Warming alcohol and smooth in the mouth. Near full-bodied. Dry, rounded, faint fruity ending. Great beer. Pinball (12262) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2011
