Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a deep redish brown with a great almost white medium creamy head. Aroma is mild with caramel dominating, but a little underwhelming. Very nice creamy smoth mouthfeel. Flavour is nice with a good degree of toffee, caramel and a little peity oakiness. Lovely balance.

bhensonb (11074) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of sweetish dark fruit backed by some chocolate. Dark mahogany color with an off-white head that quickly collapsed. Thin to medium body with moderate carbonation. The flavor is dark toasted malt with a medicinal tinge. Coarse chocolate notes and enough bitter to be noticeable. The finish is relatively dry, maybe a bit earthy, and the chocolate and bitter persist. It’s really very drinkable. Brilliant, even.
