Flaske. farven er mørk rødbrun med næsten ingen skumkrone. Aromaen er sødlige kirsebær og sirup, medens smagen er mørk tørret frugt karamel og farin. Vinder ved at lagres i 5 år.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
25cl from tap@Fiskafeen in Hancock glass@approx 5 degrees C (too cold) Pours clear dark brown with powerful small beige head with hardly any retention. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel malt and dark fruit. Taste dominated by roasted malt, dark dried fruit and alcohol. Aftertaste mainly also dominated by the roasted malt. Medium body and carbonation. Quite well balanced classic dark beer and the dark fruit is quite interesting - especially on a winters day. Could have done with more liveliness, but it may just have been the rinse aid making the glass detrimental to the beer. Will try again from bottle - it is good enough to deserve that.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Flimsy foam, very bubbly and lively beer. Smells nice to fruit and hard roasted malt. The taste is soft, round and full-bodied. It starts with a distinctly good malt sweetness, which increases in a warming alcohol strength to round of a good and very well balanced hop bitterness. The fruit is a bit nondescript but very present. Without doubt a great tribute to the king of beers, Gambrinus, after which the beer is named.

En rigtig god dansk dobblet bockpå 9,2 % Det bliver lavet i et gærkar fra 60’erne, og øllen kan fint tåle at lagres.
En fyldig smag, som måske kommer at de masse "ting" der er i øllen, fx råfrugt.
