UPDATED: DEC 4, 2006 Third tasting, December -06. Dark brown color with a tan foam. Coffee andchocolate tones. Medium to full body with a nice dry aftertaste. Have tasted some bottles with a lot of acidity and sourness. They must have large quality variations at the moment !

[Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival] Clear dark brown. Acidic nose. Sour and roasty with tart lingonberry flavour. Medium bodied with clean mouthfeel. Similar to an Oud bruin. Interesting.

blankboy (7865) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2006
Bottle at Volo. Pours a very dark ruby-brown, almost black, with an average size foamy tan head -- looks nice. Aroma of dark fruit, lots of caramel malt, some chocolate, spices and hops -- smells great! Flavour’s quite malty and a little boozy with some dark fruit, chcocolate and a good amount of hops. It’s only 6.5%, I’m not sure why this tastes so boozy to me? Medium to full bodied. Very nice, a pleasant sipper and perfect for those cold winter nights.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a warm, reddish mahogany with a small, off-white head. Plums and prunes in the aroma - very delicate. Medium body - the alcohol is surprisingly well hidden - it just appears warming. Notes of roasted malt, dried fruit and perhaps some wood. Discreet bitterness. Extremely characterful and flavourful beer. 010806

leaparsons (10859) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2006
Bottle. Very dark brown in colour. Aromas are sweet mollasses with earthy sweet roast malts. Herbal with spices and light chocolate. Some chocolate. Flavours are initially light, smooth, chocolate malts. Also has ovaltine. Sweet and mellow winter fruit. Quite viscous and syrupy. Earthy roast malts with molassess and toffee. Lightly bitter dark chocolate on the finish. Pretty good.

sysadm (25) - Århus N, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2006
Very nice bottle and brown color. Definitely not my kind of beer. Its taste is too bitter. I will not be drinking this beer again. Has a taste and smell of Whiskey.

2.8
thewolf (12932) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2006
Very dark brown colour with very limited head. Aroma is mostly burnt malts. Flavour continues this trend with a very burnt feeling, some nuttines but sadly it’s quite poor in body and the taste is a bit too short.

3.3
RichardGretton (4861) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2006
Bottle. Black beer no head. The aroma is rich coffee and the flavour is coffee, lighlty bitter but generally rich. Overall a disappointing beer.
