4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow... in one word. This one surprised me. Pours a gorgeous deep brown with a quickly dissipating head. The aroma is rich caramel with a toasted nutty smell. This is what I would expect from an oaked stout. The taste is complex with a nice bitter with a good hint of alcohol warmth. The body is much thicker than I expected. Chewy. There is some carbonation but not much. The finish is a pleasant bitter followed up by a nice reminder of the ABV. Let me repeat my opening ... wow. I bought this as an "extra" in a craft pack. I think that I will be finding a 6 of this shortly.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slikket bajer, dog i en svært kedelig flaske. Ikke imponeret over designet. Duften en smule røget, lidt a la brunt værtshus og læder møbler balsameret med nikotin. Smager let af malt og kaffe, samt jeg tror der er nok sukker i til at de er sponsoreret af Dansukker. Udemærket.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Thanks Martin! Pours a deep clear brown with a white head. Aroma of roasted malts and hops, more than Im used to for the style. A bit of vanilla and coffee on the nose. Taste is coffee, quite bitter, a bit of vanilla. I will never love this style, despite of the heavier use of hops in this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium beige head. Clear deep brown body with carbonation. Syrupy
toasted sugar aroma with caramelly roasted chocolatey notes, vaguely
perfumy. Dryish cocoa and vanilla taste with caramelly perfumy notes.
Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry caramelly mineraly perfumy
aftertaste with resiny notes. It’s nice, drinkable, but a bit odd and
strange. (0.355l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)

Bottle from Harvest Market
Kind of surprised I haven’t rated this before.
Crystal clear dark brown color with a stingy off white head. big chocolate caramel and molasses with some aged earthy hops to counter. May not be the freshest bottle, but still tastes pretty damn good.
