Sigmund (5463) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2013
330 ml stubby bottle, from Voldby Kødmandsgård. ABV is 11.5%. Dark brown colour, large to moderate tan head. Pleasant aroma of brown malts, brown kandij sugar, molasses and caramel, dark dried fruits, a hint of oak. The flavour is sweet and sugary (maybe too much), with the same notes as in the aroma. Minimal hops. Smooth to drink, the alcohol is well hidden.

Whoeeey! This thing is strong. Its deceptive as the strong dark fruit flavor masks the alcohol content. One and done.

PeatyPete (446) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2013
Dark brown with onstabile foam. Taste is average sweet and lacks some depth. Starts good but taste doesn’t adress itself farther. Aftertaste appears in de front of the mouth.
