Bottle - January 2007, thanks to Omhper for sharing!. Pours a deep, clear, red-copper with a finger wide slight head, that diminishes to a small head that accompanies all my pint leaving some lacing behind each sip. Aroma is nice, some caramel and sherry with some red fruits. Tastes fruity, strong caramel, bittersweet, some cider, spices, woody and a subtle vinous vein. Aftertaste is bittersweet and firm, some earthy hops. Chewy mouthfeel. Maybe a bit oxidized but it really fits it. A comforting and solid winter brew. tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2007

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. Cuso (8950) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 24, 2014
