0.33l bottle. Dark nut brown body with a nice fading, off-white head. Aromas are yeasty, caramel and and prunes. Its sweetish, definitely some dark caramel, also a nice alcohol sting that combined with the lively carbonation gives a little kick. Yeah, I like this. Nice and mildly bitter lasting finish. djoeye (4806) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2014

0.33L bottle from bestillingsutvalget, Vinmonopolet. Two fingers of fully diminishing beige head. Body is brownish red with good clarity. Modest aroma of nutty malts and dusty hops, along with a vague smell of caramel, dark bread and raisins. Lightly sweet, toasted, medium strong malt body. Some dark dried fruits. Sparesly hopped. Notes of higher alcohols. Light astringent mouthfeel. A certain acidulous fruitiness in a short ending. Drinks ok, but a bit unrefined. sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2012

Bottled. Pours hazy, deep amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of slightly roasted caramel, raisins and berry notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry. Medium bodied oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice winter ale.

(Bottled) Almost clear, dark copper-brown with a smallish, quickly descending head. Strong aroma of raisins and plums with caramely maltiness and burned sugar. Flavor is caramely and dark-fruity with raisins and lightly roasted, but mostly syrupy maltiness. Low bitterness. Quite full-bodied with low and soft CO2. A very smooth and warming brew with lots in common with Belgian dubbels and quads. It’s missing the crucial yeast part, though, but definitely worth a try. 6237 Lowenbrau (4525) - Asturias, SPAIN - JAN 31, 2013

Bottle shared with esp0r. Hazy deep red with a thin beige head. Aroma of forest fruits, nuts and caramel. Taste is roasty malt with berries and spices, of course the raisins are easy to spot.
Good body, great by the fire in the winter SirLimpsalot (4375) - SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2012
Ganska diskret något söt doft. Stor maltsmak och mycket råsocker, små russintoner.
