75 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu
Sweetish and somewhat light aroma has raisins, licorice, berries and some roastiness. Dryish palate. Flavour has licorice, some brown sugar, spices and raisins. Some signs of alcohol that do not disturb. Palate becomes sticky after one small glass. Good.

3.6
tiong (7754) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2011
750ml bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki

Pours black with a tiny foamy head. Aroma has notes of burned malts, spices and berries. Taste is quite malty with notes of licorice, berries and spices. Mouthfeel is smooth and oily. Finishes dry and short. Okay, but not best of the series.

3.7
lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2011
750 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu, Helsinki.
Pours a black colour with a slightly tanned head. Aroma of sweet roasted malts, wood and strong licorice. Flavour of roasted malts, strong licorice, plums, light diminished hops and wood. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a warming, roasty and licorice like finish. Very well balanced.

2.2
Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Sweet aroma of Christmas spices and pumpkin peter. No head. Sweet, but really flat and thin. Kind of lame, the abv is definitely hidden.

3.4
Bov (13354) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 25, 2011
courtesy of Jespr - dark black coloured with a little dark beige foam left; notes of Madeira/Portwine, roasted chocolatey and licorice aroma; low carbonation and very sweet; late and low bitterness; sugary notes in the finish with lingering hints of black chocolate and licorice

zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2011
(beer tasting @ Monty’s Krown - Rochester, NY: bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Thanks to David for this one. Murky copper color with a thin tan head. Spice and chocolate in the aroma with some light yeast notes. Dark malts and lots of spice still in the flavor for the age. Smooth caramel and light spice linger on near the middle and into the finish. Nice and warming aftertaste.

Slightly Imperial Stout in texture. Rich mix of malt, chocolate, subtle coffee and fruit. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Complex. Nice.

3.9
NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Bottle purchased early ’08. Poured a dark ruby, virtually flat, opaque. The aroma is lightly spiced with hints of nutmeg and ripe dark fruit. The flavor is very malty and smooth. Oily slick mouthfeel, smooth finish.

3.8
Camons (13520) - Hasselager, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2010
Bottle @ Falling Rock, Denver, Co. Pours dark ebony with a small light brown head. Have a light olie surface after head fades. Nose is chocolate, port, brown sugar, anise, oak, dark fruit. Taste is very complex with all elements from aroma, cherries, blackberries, light booze. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Very nice, but a sipper, think it would be lovely with some sweet deserts. 031210
