martin00sr (239) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 18, 2014
Bottle, almost seven years past bb-date. Thanks MiP. Pours very dark brown, almost no head. Malty, sherry-like aroma. Deep, aromatic malt taste, prunes perhaps. Smooth, very low carb, finish is a little sticky. Very good!

Renobob (453) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 26, 2014
Bue à la pression. Belle couleur foncée, fine mousse blanche sur le dessus. Arômes de malts, de grains torréfiés. Au palais, on sent un peu de sucre, du caramel et des notes de fruits rouges. Parfaitement équilibrée, on ne sent presque pas son taux d’alcool. Un délice danois !

Kita (871) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, courtesy of CanCrusher. Clear dark brown color with small, fully diminishing frothy light brown head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, dark fruits, herbs and mild medicine notes. Taste starts with sweet caramel malt, mollasses and burnt sugar, follows by mild fruitiness, then warming alcohol dominates, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium to full body, oily texture and lively carbonation in palate. Super strong, gets more vinous characteristics when being warmed for 15 or more minutes...

On tap at the wharf. Pours a dark brown with a fast disappearing head. Aroma of tortilla and malts. Flavour is malty and smooth with a hint of tortilla. Body is medium. Finish is almost thick and sweet.

McTapps (3030) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle from MiP - with many thanks. Almost six years aged but still really great. Deep dark, very light hazy, brown / almost black in colour with low creamy head and smooth body. Nose of spicy, intense malt. Taste of some lovely sherry or portwein, cask-aged, intense malt, roasted dark nuts, torf, light whiskey and dark cream. Very easy and nice to drink, just so beautiful smooth bodied. Enjoyed it a lot.

MichaelAwesome (3030) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle from MiP (thank you) and shared with McTapps. Aged and classy. Loads of dark chocolate, sherry and some vino aromas. Easy to drink and classy enough to enjoy it on a cold evening. Wonderful aromas with a warm taste. Classy.
