yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2010
Bottle. A clear, reddish brown beer with a small beige head. The aroma has some spices, with dried fruits, roasted notes, caramel and a little sourish note. It’s too sourish in the mouth, with caramel, some spiced notes and a touch of bitterness. Medium to full body. Dried fruits, some roasted malts and spiced in the finish. Far from impressive, actually nothing more than half-good. 101105

FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2010
500ml bottle (Utobeer, London)
Deep red, brief head. Sweet chocolat cakey aroma, plenty of treacly sweetness. Sweet smooth palate, carbonation pleasant. Big bold sweet taste packed with roasted malts, and with a really burnt bitter bite. Definitely a spicy bent, but not in an overpowering or gimmicky way. Alcohol well covered. Finish pleasantly bitter, not just hoppy, but also burnt.

imdownthepub (14554) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle conditioned, 500ml, from York Beer & Wine. Clouded red brown with slight head. To be fair, it was a bit of a wreckage this one. Fruity, spiced, nutty with some roastiness but a bit of a miss match with flavours at angles to the body of the beer. Having said that its quite drinkable and full.

thewolf (12597) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2009
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Pours deep brown with a nice, small, creamy, yellowish head. Very sweet aroma with milky caramel, some grass, light nutty. Low carbonation, lovely oily mouthfeel. Flavour is slightly harsh actually. A little metallic. Some viniousness. Otherwise heavy on the caramel, nuttiness, lightly roasted notes and quite a heavy hoppy bitterness in the finish. A tad weird but fairly drinkable.

3.3
Pinball (12152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2009
clear amber, smooth white head. faint aroma, hops, caramel a little bitterness. flavor is malty sweet, toffee, honey, flowery sweetness,
