pilsnerrogge (2451) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2011
75 cl. bottle:
First of all: be careful when you open this one; the pressure in the bottle might turn the cork into a deadly missile. Second: it’s a real gusher; I left the bottle standing the kitchen sink for several minutes while the foam just kept coming.
Colour is dark brown, the head is large. Malty aroma with notes of dark, bitter chocolate and alcohol. Flavour is more malt and dark chocolate with a little bit of marzipan. Alcohol bitter finish.

Body is medium to full, malty and sweet flavor, fruitiness and roasted malt, faint licorice and hoppyness, alcohol. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, fruity, alcohol, faint hoppyness.

Maria (10123) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2011
It’s dark mahogany-red with a huge, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, candy-sugar, fruit and citrus. Sadly the mouth-feel is very fizzy. The flavour is sweet with notes of roasted malt, spicy yeast, citrus (preserved peel), candy-sugar, preserved fruits, raisin and the finish is dry and slightly bitter/harsh. The fizzy mouth-feel is a draw-back.
