2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2011 0.75 bottle. Aroma of coffee and different kind of fruits, noticeable blackcurrant scent. Hazy light brown liquid with small, creamy head of great retention. Mostly bitter taste with a solid doze of saltiness and a bit of umami. Medium body and a slightly sticky texture with rather soft carbonation. Medium length, bitter and very dry finish. Too salty in my view, it lacks the balance between different ingredients what makes it slightly irritant for the tongue.

Served from bottle which been in my fridge for 5 weeks. Very surprising aroma with odours of different kinds of fruits and berries. Head disappears fast, sweet taste with none of the fruits smelled, kind of medium..

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,75 l. bottle from the supermarket labeled as Jacobsen Abbey Ale but the beer is the same. Poured in to a trappist glass. Dark red-brown colour. Initially huge, but quickly diminishing head. Vineous aroma with chocolate and marcipan. Chocolate and caramel in a vineous taste with hints of banana. Same goes wwith the finish. Medium- to fullbodied, alcohol stays hidden. A decent beer for a bargain.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
660 ml bottle. BB 11.01.2011. From København, Denmark.
Clear mahogany colour with small off-white head.
Slightly artifical aroma of caramel, toffee, chocolate and sweet fruits.
Flavour is unfortunately letting us down. This could be christmas edition of Carlsberg Lager. Sugar sweetness, some Dunkel notes but unfortunately that’s it. Some alcohol sweetness but otherwise alcohol is quite well hidden. But much else on the positive side.
