3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, from Hviids Vin & Tobak, Aabenraa. Pours a nice clear amber with a thin film head. Weak hoppy aroma backed up by a bread-like maltyness. Flavour is very well-balanced between a caramel backbone and a good dose of English and American hops. Finishes slightly peppery bitter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml, aged 2.5yrs. Chestnut with beige head. Big, full, malty bitter with a sweetish malt body, quite winey, full of fleshy fruit flavours. There is a warming alcohol note going on adding some depth to the beer along with a toffee caramel silkiness. It lacks bite on the finish, the aging has hidden any individual hop notes, but all in all a pretty decent beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper red with a huge, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of caramel and aroma hops. The mouth feel is rather oily. The flavour is malty with notes of aroma hops, caramel, light sweetness, nuts and the finish has a delicious, almost barley wine like vinousity with a light bitterness. A really nice one.

500ml bottle (Alko, Helsinki)
Sweet caramel malty aroma. Tingly carbonation. Bananaey taste, but also some sweaty horse-blanket and biting hops. Brown mushrooms too. A bit dead, and leaves me uninspired.

Bottle: Clear, copper coloured, bigger, very stable off-white head; moderate to solid sweetish spicy-fruity nose (dried fruits with a touch of cinnamon); dryish moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, quite soft; lemony-orangey aromas in the bitter-sweet dark-malty finish. A goody.....
