50 cL bottle from Beers of Europe into a pint glass. Dark brown with a good creamy head. Largely hoppy aroma, aromatic. Well balanced, dry and nicely hopped, a very good ale. BillHick420 (471) - NORWAY - DEC 31, 2011
Pours dark/black of white head. Nose of spruce hops. Refreshing aromas of dark coffee and chocolate, with a citrusy hoppy aroma, that I can’t quite describe, but makes it quite balanced. Very good, balanced and refreshing. JanLaursen (3226) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle: Hazy reddish brown beer with a frothy quickly diminishing beige head, Good lacing. Intense hard roasted malty aroma with notes of nuts, burned caramel, molasses and dried fruits. Taste is bittersweet and hard roasted with a sugary texture, full body and wonderfully integrated notes of licorice and grapefruits, probably coming from the hops. Lingering dry, medium bitter finish. Superb. jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 29, 2011

16.9 oz bottle. Clear purple brown with a smooth beige head. Nose is butterscotch and fig fading to dusty coffee. Chewy, fluffy with a prickly buzz. Taste is toffee, some burnt sugar, black grape and earthy hops. Evolves as it warms; quite nice. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 8, 2011
Bottle at Galbraiths Alehouse (Auckland, NZ), courtesy of Dave. All about the malt palate and complexity. Roasty and nutty at first, and then a touch of sweetness, spice and tartness in the finish. Seems wrong that it is only 7.5%, as has flavour you would expect from something a lot bigger. cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2011
