Smell of licorice, oil, caramel. Colour very dark brown, with a faint of red. Medium brown, creamy head. As cold, aroma of nuts, liqueur, some coffee and slightly burning sensation of high alcohol content. Long aftertaste. Sweet.

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2011
Bottle from systembolaget, Christmas beer tasting. Helsingborg, November 2011.
Big aromas of chocolate, nuts, pears, dark sugar and Belgian yeast. Slightly vinous with a soft refined sweetness. Smooth body with a lot of flavour. Loads of toffee, chocolate and spices shines through in the taste. Very balanced. More flavours of pears, syrup, nuts and esters emerge as the beer warms up. Great Christmas beer!

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2011
draft at Blue Monk, darker pour. Aromas of chocolate with some light dark fruits. Pretty intense at almost 11%, chocolate, light dark cherry. Not overly complex but pretty tasty

Finn (6824) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2011
Flaske 0,33l fra Alko Muonio. Kosedrigg hjemme 4 Des 11. Kullsort. Hyt lysebrunt kremaktig & luftig skum som fester seg til glasset. Varer lenge. Topp utseende! Deilig aroma av lakris med undertoner av rstet malt. Flyelsmyk munnflelse. Smaken er sammensatt. Frst st frukt. S kommer syrlighet med kaffe og s lakris. Alkoholen merkes ikke. Forbausende lett-drikkelig. Litt skummelt.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 3, 2011
On tap @ Local Republic (Lville, GA). Pours deep reddish/brown/black with tan head and good lacing. Chocolate, spices, hint of coffee, roasted malts, dark fruit on the nose. Complex taste off dark fruit and coffee dominate for me, but chocolate and some spice with a known booziness. Very nice.
