Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours lovely amber chestnut with a small, staying, frothy, off-white head. Heavy caramel aroma, light smokey, some roasted chestnuts, vinious. Low carbonation, fine light oily texture. Flavour has sweetness, rather powerful vinious, caramel malty, light fruity and a good smoke note. Some peity oak in the finish. Perhaps a bit too harsh in alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is ruddy brownish amber with a thin dense skin of a tan head...smell is boozey and sweet up front with some strong notes of wood...vanilla, molasses, prunes...taste is sweet and one sided with prunes and booze...some hints of char or bitter wood too...quick finish...thin bodied...far from offensive and easily drinkable, but boring.
