muzzlehatch (4904) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Dec 2004, Swedish dregs, Alts etc tasting w/MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere #15. Bottle. Dark hazelnut color, fairly clear...bit of decaying head...malty, lightly spicy nose features caramel and juniper...spicy/woody flavors with a touch of late cinnamon, lovely thick malt, perhaps a touch too much carbonation but quite nice overall.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2008
500 ml bottle. Big coarse, lightly tanned head. Lasting with fine lacework. Brilliant dark ruby-brown body. Inviting malty and fruity aroma. Suggestions of mild spices and chocolate. Chocolate-ish malt flavor, fruits and spices and a nice rounded sweetness, balanced by a gentle hopbitterness. Medium body. Feels soft and smooth in the mouth. Malty, mild bitter ending. I like this a lot.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2004
(Bottled) Dark reddish brown color with small head. Aromatic and flowery hopped, even wineous aroma. Flowery, quite hoppy, woody and reasonably malty flavor with some spiciness. Quite smooth but bitter, medium-bodied, soft-carbonated palate. A very nice, hoppy and tasty ale. Like Postiljon with added spiciness for christmas.

_angst_ (4654) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2011
2x 500 ml bottles courtesy of Roland. 2010 and 2011 vintage. Consumed on December 26. --- 2011: Pours amber with a small off-white head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is subtle with some caramel, toffee and sweet fruits. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter with toffee, caramel, figs, dates and some cloves. Finish is slightly sweet and slightly bitter. 7,3,7,3,15. --- 2010: Looks the same as this years vintage. Smell is much more developed with toffee, caramel and a chocolate character that I can’t find in the newer vintage. Taste is toffee and cocoa with hints of oxidation. There’s also some dates, caramel but I can’t find the cloves I found in the 2011. Finish is sweet with some chocolate fudge. 8,3,6,3,15. --- Quite interesting that there was such a prominent difference.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2004
Sweet, nutty malt aroma. Dark brown body with generous off-white head that recedes to nice cover. Sweet, malty, nutty, woody, earthy, caramel flavour with some herbal hops. Very complex. Smooth body and soft carbonation. Medium-light body works to advantage in this one. Very good, flirts with excellence. Bottle enjoyed with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere. Thanks, Per.

stouby (4538) - Holbæk, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2005
Bottle, at home. I bought this beer because of Rick Gordon - thanks! Redbrown with a large light creamy beige head, good lacings, mostly diminishing. Aroma moderate to heavy malty and hoppy (caramel, vanilla, licorice). Flavor moderate to heavy sweet and bitter, long duration, well balanced. Medium body, oily, soft carbonated.

Palme (4337) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2012
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew & friends. Pours a clear deep ruby-brown body with a small bubbly quite sidesticking head. It’s a bit dusty with cardboard, dark malts, wort and a hint of chocolate. It’s average - quite comfortable carbonated and has a nice oily texture. Tastes alright, light cocoa powder, cold coffee, some licorice-like tones, a mild bitterness all the way. Ends light mouthdrying with a hint of chocolate and some acidity. Nice enough. 13.04.2012

Bottle 50 cl. Pours clear ruby dark brown with a huge tanned head leaving lacing. Aroma is fruity, malty, toasted and a bit soapy. Flavor is malty, acidy, roasted, fruity and bitter. A bit watery thin body. Finishes bitter malty.
