3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Clear, amber coloured, small, a bit creamy layer; robust hoppy nose, mixed with a distinctive touch of toasted malt; solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium-bodied; lingering aromatic-bitter finish, balanced by a good amount of dark or toasted malt. A very pleasant, well rounded Ale.... Danke, Jonas!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(33cl bottle, 6.5% abv) Slightly hazy, reddish brown colour with a beautiful, light-beige foamy head. Slightly sweet and roasted dark malty aroma with caramel, spicy phenols and piney hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Moderately roasted malty taste with notes of caramel, liquorice and subtle fruity accents; dry, slightly roasty, moderately bitter finish with a light resiny hoppy touch. Nice, easy going dark Ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark burgundy red-foxy colour; virtually no head. American hops nose, rich, dry hopsacks, grapey, green sultana’s, and fleetingly, some Thai herb. Rich, faint sweetness, malts, but watered down texture, very markedly. Bit of chocolate, tobacco (retronasal), and of course again a good dose of US hops. Grapey, not vinous, also bit of cardboard; warming up some sweat. MF is the Achilles heel of this beer. The thinness (for a 7% ABV beer!) is so marked it is embarrassing. Aftertaste has slightly burning component. Nowhere bad. It is interesting as it has some characteristics of a session beer, and some of a Big’un. Thanks for the switch, Jeppe.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Picked this bottle up in Esbjerg, Denmark, Sept’ 08, consumed 08-01-09. Impressed that this Danish brewery had chosen to name a beer after me, very decent of them. Pours reddy brown in colour with a white head, Quite chocolatey, plenty of cocoa, pushy malts, even a little barley sugar. Touch sweet and caramely at times but not without its merits.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Me like! Well, it was 2 month too old, but it had a real pleasent malty aroma and flavor. The aroma was kind-a sweetish, flavor finishing bitter, perhaps astringent. Long finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours deep amber with a good lasting white head. Good hoppy nose with pine and fresh fruit. Flavour is quite hoppy for a GB beer and I sense caramel and pine. Good brew.
