3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Denmark, pours a deep, nearly flat brown with light sour plum notes plus pear drops and toffee on the nose. Palate has a slight tartness, plus treacle, forest berries, a dry bitterness, a touch of earthy wood, and a little spice and coffee. The mouthfeel is interestingly syrupy-sweet yet dry-bitter. Really doesn’t drink its strength, until you start to notice the warmth spreading to your head!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Almost black colored pour. Large tan head that slowly falls away. Plenty of lacing left behind. Chocolate, raisin, and sugar aroma. Slight bit of earthy yeastiness as well. Taste is awesome. Big raisin, prune, some chocolate and vanilla. Sweet, almost barleywine like. Hint of alcohol, but it is really well hidden. This is way better than I thought it would be.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a small head.
Nose shows caramelised banana, chocolate, soft alcohol, rose-like perfume and raisins. Pretty full on.
Lots of alcohol shows upon tasting, along with heads of sweet brown sugar and golden syrup. Long lasting finish with plenty of candi sugar. Not amazingly complex for the style.
Moderately low carbonation could be higher.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good solid old skool interpretation. Spice and stinky soy / vegemite drive the flavours. There’s a little milk chocolate and minerals to finish. Hides the 10% abv very well and this is quite quaffable for a quad.
