UPDATED: DEC 8, 2013 Bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown with little beige foam around the edges. A christmas spice aroma. Lots of orange peel as well as rye malts and sweet rye bread, tones of gingerbread. Taste is filled with christmas spices as well. Sweet rye malts and bread. Surprisingly dry and hoppy finish and aftertaste with tones of juniper as well. Palate is rather light with some carbonation. Fortunately not watery.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - SEP 1, 2011
500ml bottle, from GMCC2181. Rating #104. Hazy dark brown and very dense with a dirty white head. Real nice aroma, light, faded hops, rich sweet malts, dark fruits and berries, I could smell this one all day. Flavor is pretty sharp, light oxidation, plums and maybe a little apricot, pretty nice beer. (1885)

esp0r (2867) - NORWAY - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours brown with a small beige head with big bubbles. Smells of herbs, caramel, hints of roast and malts. Taste is moderate sweet, a strange mouthfeel made by some bitter herbs that tastes of green leaves and soil and bitter malts that i don’t like. This is not what i’m looking for in a beer

pushkinwow (2781) - Ottawa, CANADA - AUG 12, 2012
500ml bottle from tiong (Matias). Quite red mahogany with a generous biege/brown head that unlike some others both appears and has staying power (unlike your first time). A very bready malt, almost chewy and wet, caramel with some toffee; low carbonation, quite sweet with a moderate to mild body, lots of caramel with a slight bitterness hop on the finish. A little too much sweetness for me though.
