3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2008 2008-02-08, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Dark red mahogany color; creamy head. The aroma is alcoholic, with light caramel. It has a medium body strength, not to be confused with the alcohol, that immediately gets in the mouth; there is some caramel and mild chocolate flavor, with traces of vegetables. Wrong and extremely alcoholic; a "malty malt liquor". I won’t spend more words, as this beer doesn’t deserve much.
2008-01-28, draught at Cockney Pub, Århus, 6-4-7-3-13=33
Hazy dark amber color; creamy head; sticky lace. It has a very mild aroma, of malt, and something similar to a Malt Liquor. It’s full bodied, with a strong malt and caramel flavor, unfortunately for me corrected by a too strong sweet liquorice in the beginning; the liquorice then disappears a bit, and some sweet nutty trace comes in. It’s quite bitter and the final is long, with the malt too and the alcohol gently warms the mouth. Quite good, but the liquorice is not my liking.

On tap at EBF 08. It’s not really their best style. It’s a hoppy sweet barley wine. Bit musty. Not my favourite from this outstanding brewery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 Bottle. It’s a clear, dark reddish copper beer topped by a small, dense, beige head. The aroma is heavy on the malty side, and a bit subdued on the hops. Raisins, ripe blue plums, beef-stock, caramel, pine cones and fortified wine. Full-bodied and warming, with a suitable co2 level. The alcohol is quite evident in the mouth as well, giving a rather pleasant burn. Flavors of sweetness, caramel, a tiny roasted note, raisins, some hoppy bitterness and alcohol fills the mouth. The finish is of the lasting kind, warming and sweet, maybe needing just a little more bitterness. A well crafted beer, but I can’t help feeling that my total score on the beer is a bit too high. But I enjoyed it very much. 090825
