3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @Konttori. Dark brown color, small steady beige-cream head. Aroma of plums, date, also kind of musty dark maltyness. Medium to full bodied. Plums, dates in the flavor, some alcohol. It has W12 feeling but lacks depth and has less alcohol. Candy sugar sweetness. I like brewing gang more than this beer.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet.
Very dark brown, fluffy head. Stable/barnyard aroma. Packed with flavour, but the figs are ruling. More like a private joke. Bittersweet.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a deep, near-black, red-hued brown body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is a strange complex of red berries, meaty tones (!), caramel malts, herbs and hints of raisins and sweet estery yeast notes. Taste is sweet candi sugars, raisins, rose water, hibiscus, caramel, sweet yeast tones and hints of bitter herbs. Dry aftertaste with some bitter-herbal hop notes. Medium to full body, medium to high carbonation. A very strange creation and not really my thing, but I’m sure the merry crew of Danish Ratebeerians had a great time brewing it! :-)
