3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Rated on 05.03.2010
Aroma is sweet with somewhat ripe fruits, sugary notes and caramel. Flavour is really sweet with fruits, shitloads of caramel and some sugary notes. Too sweet and too boozy, just like Bommen & Granaten. A good way to get a diabetes.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle #504 I think; courtesy of Ungstrup - huge thanks!) Pours a dark amber, clear with small floaties and no head. Aroma is surprisingly refined with notes of cognac, oak, rye bread and maybe a tinge of oxydation. Pretty flat, oily texture with a full body and quite a sweet, warming finish. Taste generally follows the nose, is characterised by sweetness with plenty of aroma notes. Smooth and with the alcohol very well masked.

Hazy red-amber beer. Aged malt nose. No head, low carbonation. Semi dry palate, a little soft. Rich sweet malt, fruity. A nice low key blend of orange and cranberry and generic fruits. Very light vanilla wood, subtle brandy and provides a brief warm note. Nice liquer beer!

In bottle. Pours an amber colour with very low carbonation and a few large bubbles lacing the rim. Very sweet caramel and barley aromas with alcohol, cognac and oak notes. Similar flavours with upfront sweet barley and treacle. Oily mouth-feel. OK.
