3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Tea-like color with very small unsteady head. Aroma of dry-fruits, whisky-like. Carboniztion is low. Taste is very mild, lightly sweetened. Strong character of the beer (6,8%) doesn’t play the main role. Finish is short and dry.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copenhagen 17/1 2015. 33 cl bottle from Netto. Pours reddish light brown with quickly settling white head. Sweetish but spicy aroma. Actually notes of rum and alcohol. Medium to low carbonation provides silky mouthfeel. Taste is rather sweet and complex with notes of alcohol and rum. A rather weird mix of beer and avec.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
6.8% version. Dark wood colour with a small white head leaving tendrils of lacing. Medium body, slightly oily and a nice bit of carbonation - I think the suggestions of it being watery are a bit harsh. Aroma of spice and brown bread. Tastes of malt, rum and banana. Nice.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown, the head fades to a rim ring. Smells great. Smells like rum, spice, molasses, raisins, all kinds of rich stuff. The flavor is really good; it has all of that sweet stuff from the aroma, but it’s subtler than I thought it was going to be. And there’s a warm malt. The finish is crisp. I really like this beer.
