3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
66 cl. bottle poured in to a trappist glass. 2013 "Vintage". Dark amber colour with a small, dense off-white head, that fades to a thin cap. Sweet aroma with caramel malts, toasted, nuts, Christmas-like spices: Cinnamon, hints of cardamom and licorice, some overripe fruits. Taste is sweet. Medium body, creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes sweet with toasted caramel malts, spices and fruits. One of Carlsbergs better offering. Perhaps I should buy a 2013 Vintage and drink it next Christmas?

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Vintage 2006 bottle 8.3% abv. Could easly misidentiy this one for being a belgian abbey ale or similar. Aroma reminds me of the brown Corsendonk, Taste is sweet but balanced with plum and dark fruits. If you have this beer, store it in the cellar and let it ripen for some years.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 2010-vintage. Mørk-amber farve med hvitt skum. Maltfylt aroma, med noen mørke toner. Smaken er overraskende "svart", med lakris fra anisen, litt over middels fylde og overraskende god stemning i forhold til forventningene. Hint av røyk.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice, fruity odour in the beginning, but it disappears quite fast (maybe because of the drinking glass). Taste is fruity too, and sweet - maybe a bit too sweet. Appearence is dark brown with a thick head that stays for long.
