KnutAlbert (6740) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2006
Hight marks for this ruby ale, bought at the Jerusalem Tavern to take away. Toasted malt with coffee, perfume and fruitiness from the hops. I love this!

Lubiere (13183) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2006
Clear red copper to brown ale with a thin moka head. Sweet caramel with smooth vinous aroma, light vanilla and woody notes. Sweet chocolate in mouth, and vanilla with sour lactic notes, like burned coffee. Smooth old ale.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2006
Hardly any head on this very dark body. Heavy, stout, malty, bitter with hints of chocolate. Good for the winter (it bears its name well), with meat or food that is designed to warm on a winter evening.

Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2005
Very dark, nearly black. No head at all. Low carbonation. A little malt, a little bitterness a lot of chocolate. It works with heavy food or on its own by the fire.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2005
50 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Dark reddish black colour with nearly no head. Aroma of roastedness and hints of chocolate. Very nice smooth flavour of roastedness, spice and bitterness, a great tasty winter beer.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 13, 2005
Pint poured from cask at Jerusalem Tavern in Farrington, London. A clear blackish brown with no head. Not a strong aroma, slight maltiness. Quite smooth, easily slides through my mouth. Found the taste a bit tangy and sweet, with chocolate undertones.

DuffMan (9740) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 12, 2005
Fantastic beer! Low carbonation, so no real head (more like a film). Pours black, and when held up to the light it is deep sapphire red. Chocolate, coffee, and earthy aromas. Rich palate with a heavy mouthfeel, flavours of bitter chocolate, coffee, charred malt, stewed plums and figs. Loved it!

rickgordon (3858) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2005
Bottled. Very dark brown with a tint of red. Malty nose, with notes of dark fruits and diacetyl. Fat, malty, butterscotchy mouthfeel with notes of licorice. Long flavour, papery bitterness. The last bottle I got last year was infected. Great that this one wasnt.
