brnandersen (3273) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 23, 2013
Sample from 50 cl. bottle. B.B. 2008. Dark amber colour with a small, off-white head. Sweet aroma with licorice, caramel and roasted malts - the orange peel and other spices are gone due to age. Taste is sweet. Medium body. Finishes sweet with licorice. Not worth saving for years.

Pours a clear and dark reddish brown beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is plastic, phenolic, spices and orangepeel. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall this beer could be infected.
