MiP (13997) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle, 5.3%. Sweetish and malty aroma. Clear brown colour. Big stable light brown head. The flavour is spicy and herbal, teaish, sweetish with a mild bitterness to (almost) balance. After more sips, the herbs fade away but the bitterness and maltiness stay resulting in a more balanced beer than I though to begin with.

Bamsen78 (3942) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy coppr brown with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, with notes of hops and barrel and touches of spices. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with rough but sweetish malty notes and bready touches. Subtle hints of dried fruit. Rough aftertaste with hints of diacethylene. Not bad but not very inspiring, either.

blogmeabeer (23) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2014
Light brown with pale head. A bit thin on the nose, hints of syrup and hazel nuts. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat as it should be. Nutty malt with caramel and a lingering light bitterness. This is a decent beer. I wich it would pack a bit more punch and umfph.

Lukasmh (331) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear amber with frothy off-white head. Aroma is slight toffee, caramel, bit malty. Taste is bit harsh like the finish. Sweet, malty, toasty and bit watery body. Some Christmas spices too. Boozy though the low abv.

konungen (125) - - NOV 28, 2014
Brun klar öl med smutsvitt skum. Doftar malt / karamell, frukt och sött. Smaken är väldigt söt, maltig, anar lite frukt och alkohol. Lite för lite styrka i förhållande till sötma i min smak. Flaska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Cooper color. Pours medium-big white head. But it doesnt last too long. Some lacing on glass. Aroma of orange, dates and chocolate. In flavor there are orange/tobacco/nuts/caramel notes with some peperness in aftertaste. Sweet with bitter finish. Overall: good beer, classic english hops profile.
