Rune (11653) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2006
500ml bottle (no.44710) bought at an Alko store in Tampere, Finland in Oct.06. Should be the right ale to enjoy at the end of 2006. Pours a very beautiful deep, copper brown coloured body with brilliant clarity under a dense, off-white foam blanketing the glass. Rather poor in aroma, but rich in taste. Earthy malt freshness to the nose. Very well-balanced flavours of dark fruits offset by vanilla sweetness and a nice hoppy bitter end. Gentle mouthfeel, but perhaps a bit intense carbonation (31.12.2006).

Hansen (8524) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2006
Very big differance between aroma and flavor. Aroma is a bit "thin", small hints of laqurice and medicine. Flavor is big, lots of fine laqurice, heavy complex bitterness, and long, long, long finish. Oily texture.

johndoughty (5176) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2006
Bronze and clear. Slightly fruity witj no carbonation and left no lacing. Very mellow, just like drinking a well rounded Sherry.The alchohol doesn’t take over as it often does with beers of this strength. A lovely Christmas gift to myself!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2006
Bottled. Pale reddish amber clear body with a low sticky white foam. medium sweet aroma of caramel, cherries, figs, licorice and alcohol. Cramel, toasted bread, figs, raisins and alcohol in the flavour. The alcohol shines through a bit too much in the finish with notes of almond, orange-peel and mild spices. This one really has potential,
