3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark copper-red, transparent beer with a foamy head and lots of bubbles sticking to the glass. Coffee pure chocolate smell with hints of malt and cardamom, very nice. The palate is a bit disappointing as I don’t get the richness in the smell back there. Taste is watery, bitter-sour. Well balanced. Nice ale!

Bottle @ London. Thanks to Sønder. Pours deep dark amber with a small creamy bubbly white head and lacings. Nose and taste is fruit and buiscuit, and a thick layer of caramel malt and floral hops. As the beer warms the yeast becomes more dominating. Very smooth . Dry end.

Bottle. Pours a dirty medium brown with reddish tint on the edges. Nice slighly rockie head. Fades slowly leaving a little lacing. Wonderul sweet aromas of malt. Slightly toasted and just a little nutty. Flavours show plenty of sweet malt once again with some toast, nuts and also some caramel. Hops come in near the finish to give a nicely bitter end. Balance seems to be about perfect. Really enjoyed this one,

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ Fish’n’beer, Cph.
Hazy amber, fine, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has caramel, some doughy malts, flowery hops, light liqourice. Medium, prickly carbonation, fair mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit bland, some caramel, light hoppiness. Flowery, piney and slightly medicinal. Long, lingering bitterness, though. And a fine, slight nuttiness appears that takes it above average.
