3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a can, presumably straight from a barrel @ EBF 2008. Hint of cherry in the aroma, just a touch of spicyness. Oak, red berries and various nondescript spices (cardemom?) in the flavor. The comnplexity is there, but this beer is too spicy for my liking.

++Cask at European Beer Festival, Copenhagen. ++ Clear orange-brown. Aroma of hay and toffee. Solidly malty with clean but chewy mouthfeel. Fairly relaxed (by EBF standards) with a vague touch of herbal spices and fair amounts of caramel. Growing late bitterness.

50 cl bottle. Muddy dark brown colour with a nice white head. Oxidation in the aroma along with spices, orange, smoke and raisins. Flavour of smoke, munich, spices and orange peel. A very nice Christmasbeer, with the good danish christmas spices, its pretty cool with the smoke in it. The alcoholc a well hidden. Cheers

Beautiful dark amber with a huge, golden head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel and light fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of citrus, malt, caramel, fruit, oranges, clove and the finish is slightly dry with a moderate citrus bitterness with a very light touch of smoke.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2007 bottle, 7.5%. Grassy hop aroma. Hazy grey/brown colour. Very small head. The flavour is mildly smoked. OK maltiness, not sweet, but good. I cannot taste the spices as such, perhaps they just add to the malty notes. The mouthfeel is a little thin. Gets more smoked after a while, quite nicely so. Well-balanced.
