4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One big, red, flavourfull mouthfull of beer. Richer than the duke of Westminster, and with a good alcohol kick to remind you this is a strong ale. A cracking beer for the price, highly recommended in winter...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost no head retention. Dark golden/amber colour. Red wine and butterscotch aroma. Full bodied, dark fruits, slightly oxidised and lots of caramell. Plus a bit of alcohol taste. Bitter aftertaste with raisins and figs.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(on bottle)Didenīt like the harsh and sweet taste at first, but it soon turned into a perfect winterwarmer. Very sweet sent of fermentet strawberries and a depp, golden brown color. soft, allmost tasteless at first, but then the finish hits you and the drink changes totally. Ver full malty mouth after a long wait of 20 seconds and a real kick of alcohol, makes the tones of wood and cognag really come to the surface. Meditationbeer indeed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer is strong, but borring. The flavor and aroma is filled with roasted malt and hops, which makes it bitter.

Amber to copper body, almost no head. Malty nose with a weird aroma. Good malty flavor with some bitterness to back it up. Not to keen about this beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from bottle at Danish Beer Festival 2004 (#38).
Clear amber beer with an ok head. Aroma is sweet and alcoholic. Spices and dark malt - reminds me of a barley wine. Flavor has a fine sweetness without beeing too sweet. Spicy and hoppy and quite dry with a little alcohol present. Nice and tasty.
