3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is dark brown/ amber with a modest off white head. Aromas are slightly spicy on the nose, with a hint of berries. This brew is subdued in a negative way, for me. The spice note is there, the dark fruits are there but in a mediocre form; bubblegum is present, for whatever reason. The malt side is present; caramel, I guess. Eh.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Høkeren, Cph.
Lovely, very deep red with a fine, staying, creamy, beige head. Fine duration. Lovely spicy aroma among good dark chocolate. Raisins, cinnamon, cloves, flowers, red berries. Lowish carbonation, fairly light but good dry mouthfeel. Flavour is fairly malty, good chocolate base. Mildly roasted, some rye character, good dryness from the spices. Especially cinnamon and cloves dominate.
