Mikon kanssa Pyrkadulla. Not exactly my cup of beer, quite nice ale still, sweet and malty in a drinkable way.

nihtila (3430) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
24.1.2014. Kuohui pullosta ulos! Tuoksussa karamellista mallasta, rusinaa ja pihkaa. Maku on melko makea, kyps hedelm, rusinaa, hentoa yrttisyytt. Makeutta on hieman liikaa, mik tuntuu varsinkin jlkimaussa.

caesar (6972) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from Biernavigatie, BB Summer 2016, large sample. Cloudy brown color, short frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, spicy yeast, raisin, slight fruity. The raisins make it smell like an aged belgian dark, although its not aged at all, seeing the BB date. Slight sweet in taste, lots of raisin again. Aroma is a bit more complex, but flavor is all about raisins. Interesting stuff, though a bit one-dimensional.

Cimbasso (886) - - AUG 24, 2015
Pours a hazy tawny brown with a white head. Toffee and raisin taste with a very full mouthfeel. Great, complex flavours with an aftertaste reminiscent of a dark rum. This is an excellent winter ale. Thanks to Holmen 1 for the bottle!

Holmen2 (3450) - NORWAY - NOV 25, 2015
From bottle at Clarion Energy Hotel with KL and ES. Muddy brown. Beige head. Aroma of prunes, dates, roasted nuts, dark syrup and brittle. Taste of medium dark malt, prunes, dates, rasins, dark caramel, honey and brittle, balanced with medium bitterness. A hint of herbs in aftertaste. Still not too sweet, and with good drinkability.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 Great version - sweetness of dried fruit and caramel with a dry bready backbone. I thought the booze was well masked,not raw at all. Something like a barley wine but a bit more mellow. Lots of dried raisin in there.

Rask0lnikov (1079) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 7, 2016
Hazy copper colour. No head almost at all. Caramel, raisins in the aroma. Caramel, raisins at first. Hints of dark fruits and bread in the middle. Sweet finish. Rather medium bodied, sticky, low carbonated drinkable winter beer. But would not have two glasses in the row because of the sweetness. Otherwise, nicely balanced and neutral.
