In bottle. Pours a dark golden amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of treacle, candy sugar, caramel, musty yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lingering candy sugar and alcohol. Mildly bitter. Not bad.

Unde (1152) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Amber colour with delicate head which sadly dissolves quickly. Aroma has nuts, toffee, chocolate and some wooden notes. Taste is sweet with chocolate, toffee and dark wooden flavors and syrup. Full body with quite low carbonation. For a price tag of +40 € this beer doesn’t stand its ground.

omhper (25723) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2011
Bottled. Clear nut brown, small head. Wild strawberries and caramel. Mid sweet with medium-full body and rounded mouthfeel. Caramel and spicy hops, quite bitter finish. Pretty good, relaxed strong ale with some depth. Comes across a bit ordinary, considering the high price and very fancy packaging.

Dedollewaitor (16382) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle @ Really Late Ulfborg Summer Tasting, 2012. Pours clear ruby amber with a small white head. Nutty and hoppy. Quite a lot of bread. Smooth and dry. The price is stupid but the quality is fine.

Cerveza de color ámbar con una pequeña cabeza de color blanca. Aroma a fruta madura, malta, caramelo, lúpulo, especias, alcohol, algo de madera, bastante complejo. Sabor un poco dulce, lúpulos picantes, alcohol, fruta, madera, con un final amargo y seco, es bastante buena.

Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2012
(Bottle) Pours dark copper amber with an off-white to sand coloured head. The aroma is really fruity/estery (reminds me a bit of canned fruits) with caramelized white sugar, honey and syrup up front (reminds me a bit of canned fruits). Hops bring spices, earth, wood, flowers and oranges. Undertones of sticky fudge, wet crisp bread, plums, resins figs and vanilla as well as a hint of grapes. Light Port vinous on the nose. The flavour is medium sweet, light to medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of caramel, fruits/dried fruits, honey, spices, light wood, earth, oranges, crisp bread and a touch of grape tartness. The mouthfeel is round, super soft and robust with a light carbonation. Oranges juice, hints of dried fruits, mild spice hops, honey and caramel on the finish. Medium to full bodied.
