3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft - Dark red amber body, VERY creamy beige head; Very fruity spicy nose, deep but not really fitting (to a beer); Soft texture and carbonation, slightly sweet and juniper harsh; Juniper aroma in finish mixed with some malty sweetness. Strange and not at all my kind of beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Plan B, Copenhagen, 3 Aug 2007) Dark amber colour with frothy beige head. Malty, spicy nose with lots of spices, liquorice and something bittersweet (sweet gale, sloe, juniper?). Malty, spicy taste with dark fruit, liquorice and ... sweet gale? Rather sweet. The spices get a bit overpowering, but i can’t help liking it. Strange but nice.

A special beer. really spicy, lot of herbs. Reminds you almost of Christmas glögg or mulled wine. Somehow bittersweet and sour at the same time. Nice dark amber colour.

Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2007, 2007-05-11, 5-3-6-3-11=28
Amber color with red hue. Herbal aroma (mint…). Medum body, maybe some malt, honey, but nothing special.
Draught at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen, 2007-03-16, 6-3-6-3-13=31
Dark amber to mahogany color; poor head. Light herbal aroma, similar to heather. Medium malty body, some sweetness, caramel, herbs and traces of liquorice. Quite high ending bitterness. Not bad, balanced, but I don’t see the interest in herbal Ales.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Complex nose with notes of berries and fruit along with a whiff of cracked grains. Lovely deep auburn color and low head. Syrupy sweetness is balanced by a nutty middle and then a dry woody end. Some hops, but subdued and well blended. There is a light whiff of alcohol in the nose after the swallow, though not strong or overpowering. Well done. Thanks for this, Eric!

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: fresh aroma with hints of caramel, honey and a dash of boiled vegetables. Amber colour with lots of carbonation and average head. Complex - and slightly uneven - flavour with caramel malt, spices and some sourness to compliment the restrained hops bitterness. Mouth feel is slightly dry with a long lasting aftertaste. A good beer.
