Bottle. Fairly clear and copper with small head that dissipates to about 1/2 cover. Aroma of honey and wet cardboard. Sweet taste with some hops in the finish. Definite honey taste in the sweetness. Decent carbonation. The 8.5% alcohol is well hidden. Not bad but not worth $7.

(500ml bottle #3174 thanks to blutt59) Bright orange. Smell matches the appearance with lots of orange. Taste has more malt, graham cracker. A good bit of alcohol, could probably use some more age to tone down the alcohol.

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie, caramel), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers). Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Par for the course.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Wonderful look, amber color with a thick creamy head. As Iíve been used to in these recent years, the aroma is mostly disappointing: vegetables, cabbage, dust, alcohol and just light caramel. Strong body, with oily mouthfeel; average caramel flavor; the final is oily and nutty. Correct bitterness. This beer ainít get any better in a few years.

A big olí bottle from the finish of Copenhagen í10: raisiny aroma. An I tense tobacco and date flavour. Too boozy I reckon. Pushing the limits of delicious.
