Bought a bottle at the supermarket. The beer has a dark brown and a copper color and nice cream colored head, CO2 level is perfect. Aroma of hops, malts and some dark fruits. The taste is full with tones of herbs and some roasted malts. It’s sweet with a light bitter. The finish begins sweet and ends with a light bitter. A nice Bok, but there are better ones.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A dark brown beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma is rich and malty, bread, ryebread roastiness and syrup. Taste is sweet and malty, syrup, bread, some rich and cooked fruits, dates, hint of roastiness. Medium+ bodied, quite smooth to drink. Sweet and malty, I think too sweet, still rich in nuancees with strenght of malts.

Personal contribution @ ‘The Adam Jackson Tasting’. Awesome – 30 cl. bottle sampled. Reddish brown with little off-white head. Smell is very sweet, very sweet, molasses, very sticky caramel, medicine,… this is still sort of ok. Taste is however that with sweet herbalness, medicines, sweet stiky caramel, cough syrup, odd metal off-flavours, fake, way too much, some bitter herbs, gingerbread,… Sticky, less carb. It is a bit like licking a tree after taking cough medicine. In a bad way so… yeah.
