Hm, the chermens had better keep an eye out and step up to recognise this serious threat to one of their classic brews reputation of quality. Poured with a very nice light tan thick foamy frothy head that lasts and lots of lace. Color is a very lovely clear dark cherry wood. Nose is malt fruit yeast and a bit roast. Flavor is like flavor and more of it. Body is excellent: soft round, but not too & with excellent carbonation. Finish is very good- not too sweet but plenty of flavor and character to keep this beer commanding my interest. Finish is of short to medium length. Outstanding beer and a session, no question.

Is that really Zues on the bottle? Looks way to happy to be a greek god. Anyhoot. Pours a thick dark dark amber & prune color with a 2 finger off white head. Nice aroma of cocoa, caramel, biscuity and has nice undertones of chocolate. Very smooth. I like, I like. ok hear it goes...cocoa, hints of melted caramel notes of chocolate but a little boozy. Lots of flavors pop out in the after taste. Nice body. fairly medium all around. Easily drunk by all.

75cl bottle courtesy of argo0. Hazy amber beer with a lasting head. Rich malty caramel and cherry aroma. Smooth malty flavors of vanilla, caramel, and molasses, with some fruity yeast flavors, but a relatively clean profile. Creamy full body. This was really nice stuff; great balance and mouthfeel with an interesting yeasty component that doesn’t seem very typical for the style.

The sweet and malty smell is pleasing and continues to the palate. It is unique in the hops flavor - maybe the premiant hops, but rich ale flavor of sweet malts as well.

Hazy reddish-brown. Chocolate, nuts, toast and some brown sugar on the nose. Smooth, molassesy palate. Light orange and lime. Complex, interesting brew.

Rune (11341) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2008
Served at the right drinking temperature at EBF, Copenhagen 08. Russet body colour, tiny beige head. Sweet smell of malty nuttiness. Toffee in flavour with roastiness and welcoming hints of tart fruits. Smooth, vinous in the mouth. Pleasant, but in small amounts at the time (14.09.2008).

badgerben (4886) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2009
Dark red color with a medium head. Solid aorma of sweet grains and Munich malt. After warming up a bit, the flavors really stand out. Lots of sweet grain, rich Munich malt flavor, light caramel and a pinch of chocolate. Moderate Noble, floral hop. Quite nice.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of cascading foamy light brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a slightly hazy typically carbonated dark orange brown colored body. The mild aroma was brown malt. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild hops mildly vinous and brown malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.
