SaintMatty (7612) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle - Dark brown with red tinges and a slight haze. Dundee cake (how apt!), marzipan and almonds in the aroma. Rich taste with notes of roasted malt, fruitcake and caramel. olsvammel (7313) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2012
Sample at a tasting. Strong smell and fairly boozey with notes of cognac and plum brandy. Similar taste. This was too boozey for my taste but I have a feeling it will appeal to allot of people. ekstedt (7013) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear deep chestnut with a tiny brief head. Sugary and caramelly malt aroma with some fudge and clear smoked aromas. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Sweet with low to medium bitterness. Without the smoed aromas I could have enjoyed this a lot. Marduk (8628) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2012
Tap @ SBWF 2012. Hazy deep brown color. Small head. Caramel, roast, hops, malty notes in aroma. Hops, malty, mild smoky/roast, yeast, sweet, faint fruity in flavor. Medium bitter ending. I can’t say I get alcohol in taste, but certainly feel some strength running down my throat. Nisse666 (8153) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2012
