petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2008
Strange brew.. Aroma of prunes, banana and cloves. The flavour is fat with prunes and alcohol dominating. The aftertaste is quite spicy and the palate is rather light, considering the strenght. OK

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2011 Bottle at Kolding Ølmesse. Pours a slightly murky brown body with a nice beige head. Caramel, fruityness and a pleasant hoppyness in the aroma. Caramel, sweetness, a little roasted maltyness and a nice bitterness in the flavor, finishing caramel-sweet and slightly alcoholic. Full, effervescent, sweetish and warming mouthfeel. Sure a beer one could drink more often. Rating: 6-4-7-4-14-3.5. 080229

Bottle, as Briels Geuzenbier. Unclear, brown body with a small, off-white head. Ginger, caramel, heather, cardamom and alcohol on the nose. It’s warming on the palate, full-bodied and sort of sticky. Caramel, roasted malts, nuts and spices in the flavor. Some alcohol flavor too, especially in the rather sweet finish. There’s also a touch of licorice. A quite nice one, I like that the spicyness isn’t dominating. 110621
