yespr (31625) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2010
1 L bottle, courtesy of Papsoe. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is wooden and dark malty. Light fruity accent. Smooth caramelish and roasted to dark breadish malt flavoured. Interesting with rather aromatic US hops to counterbalance the dense malt flavours. Gives a citric twist, yet also towards dominant in the flavour profile. Dry and citric into a dry finish.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2010 Upon reconsideration, this beer really is everything I remembered the first time...glad to have a couple extra of these! (1 Quart 1.8 fluid oz.) Murky brown with orange hue. Under light looks just like caramel. Head is melted coffee ice cream. Under certain lights, the murky brown almost hints at purple (wild looking). Aroma is burnt semi-sweet chocolate, espresso, boozy, fruit esters (berry). Flavor starts sweet syrupy and fades to bitter dark chocolate with hints of caramel and fruit sweet berry. Finish is bitter dry biting beautiful long lasting.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
MIBRomeo (2564) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Heavily carbonated appearance w/ a deep red color almost brown when not held to the light and a thick small bubbled tan head that quickly dissipates. Nice aroma sweet toffees w/ a bit of dandelion and grassy hops. Nice palate well coated and smooth. Flavor is lots of light toffee and a good amount of bitterness for an ESB finishes grassy. Pretty simple but pretty good.
