3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark brown with a small pale head. Aroma of cognac, raisins and other dark fruit. Taste is quite sweet - raisins, chocolate and only the subtlest hint of bitterness in the aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smallish brown head. Just barely translucent clear deep dark red
body with light carbonation. Fruity toffeeish soy sauce aroma
with bubblegum, chocolate and alcohol notes. Dry-sweetish fruity
toffeeish bubblegum taste with soy sauce notes. Mid-bodied. Mild,
slightly hot mouthfeel. Dry herbal licorice and chocolate
aftertaste with soy sauce and fruity bubblegum notes. Decent,
but not very interesting. (0.5l bottle, Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, dark reddish brown beer with a very small head. Dried fruits like prunes and raisins on the nose, some alcohol and roasted malts as well. The alcohol barely detectable. The aroma has some bitterness and coffee hints to support the dried fruits and warming alcohol, it’s smooth, full-bodied and warming, finishing with a little too less flavor but sufficient warmth. A really nice one, but it lacks a bit on complexity. 110513

Love the bottle art. As soon as i saw it, i just had to try it. Very nice beer also. It’s not really unique, but it is balanced.

Pours almost black with lasting very fine light brown head.
Nose is yeasty spicey with, brown sugar, cinamon, and coffee.
