2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice head, dark brown color with a red hue. The aroma is malty and sweet, almost like a "hvidtøl". The flavour also is malty, sweet and the finish has a light bitterness. IMO this one lacks complexity - it’s too one-dimensional.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours dark amber with an off-white bubbly head, fades quickly. Nose of hops, soap suds, some malt and some oakwood smoke. Flavour is slightly malty sweet, floral, then some hoppiness, touch of sour fruit and then some smoky peat. Sweetness continues in the mouth for a long time. Peat taste and smokiness lasts right through to the finish. Finish is slightly too hoppy, but good, little heavy for a bitter. Straightfoward.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Off white head and dark amber of color. An aroma with sweet malt and toffee. The flavor is sweet and malty, not much hops in it. A sweet bitter of my opinion.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Reddish-amber coloured, big fluffy off-white head, slowly collapsing; sweet nose: roasted malt, toasted malt, molasses or liquorice wtih some fruitiness; sweet flavour, light to medium bodied; sweetish-malty finish with traces of liquorice again. Not bad, but a bit too much on the sweet side.......
