Plovmand (6301) - Helsinge, - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours brown with a creamy beige head. The aroma is ripe fruit, toasted caramel and brown sugary like. The flavour is toasted malt, caramel, light citrus, light spice and English licorice. Toasted and light roasted finish.

50cl bottle Caramel and chocolate aroma, very roasty. Foam only lasts for about a minute, it’s completely gone afterwards without any lacing whatsoever. Long lasting bitterness, medium body. Malty, with a very subtle hint of hops. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it to a friend, but it’s not a bad brew.

500ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga)
Good call, Marduk - I’ve had this many times, I can’t believe I’ve not rated it (then again, I’ve had the cask version anyway). Sweet caramelly aroma, stinky rotten malts. Turns around in the mouth though. Lovely retronasals, chocolatey malts, sweetish caramel. Some huskiness follows in the taste alongside some really deep roast, almost a dry burntness. Palate is simple, a bit sugary, a little fizzy. Finish has slightly thin drying hops, a bit eaerty and herbal. Reminds me of the real ale I once knew, but this is nowhere near, it’s fizzy and messy.

Marduk (2472) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 5, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear dark brown color. Medium size, thick yellow head, stays. Dark fruits, dried plums, sweet, sweet, faint caramel in aroma. Raisins, woody, some herbal aspects, tobacco leaf (in a nice way), smoky roasted malts in taste. Dry herbal bitterness in aftertaste. Spicy notes too. I like it.

Tayeth (188) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 27, 2014
Sehr angenehmes malziges Aroma, süßlich, etwas sirupartig. Der Geschmack ist dann relativ unauffällig, malzig, gut. Insgesamt solide, aber nichts außergewöhnliches.

Säuerlich-röstiges Aroma. Beim Geschmack zuerst röstig, zum Ende sehr bitter, dazwischen aber nur Wasser.

ThirstyBird (1455) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2014
Pours a brown color with orange highlights and a tan head. The smell is roasted malt, fruit, some caramel and earthiness. The taste is as it smells with a dry slightly bitter aftertaste. The body is light/medium and the carbonation is nice and crisp. Pretty nice stuff.
