Bottle from 2003 thanks to kramer17801 for this one. Pours a dark amber color with a small off-white head. Roasted malty dark fruit aroma with some weak hints of hops. Sweet malty bitter dark fruit flavor with hints of caramel and hops. Warming finish with lots of caramel and dark fruit, also some alcoholic hints. Very nice one.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2006
Bottled (2005, thanks kenb!). Nut brown colour with particles floating around, mediumsized creamy beige head. Aroma is about the same as Fred but has some very sweet (s sweet it’s hard to tell if it’s sour) stuff included. Flavour is alcohol, sweet caramel, yeast, lots of hops and honey. Somehow, pouring the yeast into this one seems to be a mistake, as the yeast gives very strong flavour. Alcohol does it’s "warming" in this one. Somehow, though "only" 10% Fred seemed much smoother to the flavours. And no, it is not bad even though I write some "negative" things in the rating.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2010 2008 bottle. Aroma of cinnamon and caramel. Dark amber. Tastes very much like a good scotch ale, however you describe one of those. Balanced malt and caramel.

Cloudy brown beer, thick pale tan head. The head has a lovely creamy bitter toffee flavour. The beer is rich and sumptuos. Sweet malt with a blooming aniseedy alcohol. Semi dry finish. Very tasty barleywine.
