3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Murky brown color with almost no head. Nose of earth and dead leaves with some slight floral notes. Taste of leaves, a little grass, caramel and grain. Acidic bitter finish with some hints of citrus. Balance is odd. By no means a terrible beer, but something seems a bit off. Can’t quite put a finger on it...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle best before 01 01 11. Malty nose, dark with toffee and faint nuts, caramel with crystal malt, a little chocolate, Goldings and Fuggles for balance. Amber pour, clear with light streaks of brown, a short white head. Taste is dry and lightly fruity, lightly sharp, low bitterness but a lasting cracker aftertaste. Medium body a bit heavier than I’d like. Some mild character coming through, but in the end, I think I’d prefer their Golden Seahawk.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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,
