4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From bottle into chalice. One if my top 5 beers, fresh, hands down. This one is 11 months aged. A: brown sugar, alcohol, and carmel malt. Gorgeous brown, amber hue, with frothy, slightly khaki head. And nice lacing! T: sweet carmel front, robust brown sugar middle, and mostly sweet back, almost barley wine-like. P: fairly bubbly, super smooth finish. Better fresh, but great aged! Would be a 4.9, if not 5.0 fresh!

Bottle @ DØE. Appearance: Pours clear golden with short lived white soapy head and lacing. aroma/taste notes: bread, a bit of caramel, anis and orange. palette: medium aroma, average carbonation, thin to medium body, average to notable caramel sweetness, low to medium bitterness, medium duration and a watery texture. Overall: a bit thin and not quite fond of the spice mix in this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hmm, quite different but I don’t think it works! Pours dark copper w/ a tan head that leaves little lacing. The aroma is rather soft w/ some subtle hints of caramel. The flavor resembles ice tea. There is no hop presence whatsoever & it doesn’t really feel like a beer at all. I’m no expert on the style but this isn’t my cup of tea. Lol

Flaske: Ovenpå bjældeklang var dette klart et skridt op, men stadig forholdsvis ligegyldig og bare drikbar. Ikke nogen stor oplevelse men i det mindste smagte den ikke som at slikke på et stålrør.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark ambergolden body with a off-white head which falls like snow. An aroma of dried fruit and malt. A good note of fruit, vanilla and spices. The heavy alcohol makes the beer strong and vinous (madeira-like). OK to a good heavy Christmasdinner.

Labeled as Winter. Pours amber with a fizzy off white head. Aromas of caramel malts, spice, and a touch of spice. Flavor is light dark fruit, bubbly carbonation, spice, and a warming finish. Decent

From Michaels Mad og Vin in Hørning. This beer was very nice but a little too much cristmas-style for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear darkish copper brown and ruby with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit and malt with notes of caramel and spices. Sweet, fruity flavour with notes of malt, touches of flowers, notes of hops. Sparse metallic notes. Slightly vinous and fruity finish. OK. Rather Christmas-like for a Biere de Garde, though.
