thewolf (12274) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Aakjaers, Esbjerg.
Pours clear red amber with a fine, medium, frothy off-white head. Good duration, and fine lacing. Rather spicy and earthy aroma with a sweetish toffee touch. Fine, frothy creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sadly a bit metallic, lots of sweet caramel thickness. Light citric bitter. If the metallic notes weren’t there, this would be really great. Still, with that slight off-flavour, it’s very nice.

Bottle shared courtesy of egajdzis (thanks!). Best before date of Nov. ’05. Poured a darker mahogany color with a smaller sized tan head. Kinda of a musty and earthy aroma with leather coming out as it wamed up. Tastes of spices, light caramel, and earthy. Light alcohol in the finish.

330 ml bottle. BB 26/12/14. From saveur-biere.com.
My advent calender door number 15 gave me this one. It’s dark mahogany coloured with a big light tan head. Sweet dark fruits, spices and dry maltiness. Very nice. The flavour is also quite yummy with dark fruits, some sweetness, spices, dry woody malt and mild alcohol.

DocLock (10215) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy deep coppery pour with aroma of caramel malt, fruit, some vinous notes, plus some funky cabernet notes. Tastes fruity, with caramel malt, vinous, nutty, and some cognac notes. The hops and spice appeared at mid-palate, and blended well with the flavor.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2007
33 cl. bottle. Almost mahogany with a weak head. The aroma is malty, very malty and sweet. The flavour is sweet, very sweet and it has notes of a lot of malt and nuts. IMO this is to sticky sweet, partly because it seems it doesn’t have anything else to offer, so I miss a bit of complexity and bitterness.
