UPDATED: NOV 5, 2007 Fad. Desværre var denne øl skidt sat sammen. ingen balance imellem krydderier og maltbase, hvilket gjorde at det var en prøvelse at drikke den. Desværre, for jeg har ellers masser af sympati for bryggeriet, men de er nok bedst til de mere velhumlet øl.

#31 [Blind tasting @ Papsoe, Courtesy of Storm] Large thick beige head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Dark mahogany colour. Light malty and spicy notes. Hint of caramel and fruit. Sour feel in the sniff. Over the palate, light roasted malt. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light alcoholic texture. Moderated sweet flavour with light acidic. Spicy like almost bitter finish that lingers which ends in a liquorish feel. 4 / 6 / 7 / 3 / 14 = 3.4

Draught at Ølbaren.
Hazy dark brown look with a huge lightbrown creamy head. Aroma isnt too intence, different spices are detected along with roasted malts. Flavor is sweet at first, but only for a little bit, since bitterness from roasted malts takes over. Again lots of spices like cloves. Leaves a fairly bitter aftertaste, and a pepper lige spiceyness.
