3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, reddish amber colour with a firm medium-sized tanned foamy head. Moderately piney and slightly citric hoppy aroma with notes of dark malt, caramel and liquorice. Bitter and moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Dark malt character with caramel, liquorice, accompanied by piney and mildly fruity hops; present dark malty sweetness towards the moderately fruity and bitter hoppy finish with warming alcoholic notes. Not the best ASA, but nevertheless a pleasant Ale. 20.X.12

Tasting glass draft @ AC/CB. People at the stand described this one as a Barley Wine. Dark ruby brown, small creamy brown head. Very strange brew, smell is paint thinner, chemical, malty, brown sugar, sweet. Taste of paint thinner, caramel, sticky brown sugar, boozy, plastic, toffee,… Thick pain thinner body, malty. Odd beer, enjoyable somewhat but quite strange never the less but far from best in style.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fris aroma met weinig karakter. Zeepachtige schuimkraag die lang blijft. Mooi mistig donker bier, met een bittere binnenkomst. Bitterheid blijft mooi in balans. Lichte zoete fruitige smaak met bitterheid als boventoon.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Pours clear and Longhorn-orange with a small, creamy, white head. Dates and honey are the aromatic highlights here. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and modest carbonation. This brew is bitter and also offers a lot of honey flavor without the usual, accompanying sweetness. Finishes bitter. Interesting. Bottle shipped from Denmark by Plovmand!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On keg at Jopenkerk Haarlem - Very dark body pour with a small ring of white foam. Aroma of plums, raisins, brown sugar, a hint of molasses as well. Taste is sweet, lots of brown sugar, molasses, just a hint of roasted malt which is quite welcome. Very nice mild alcohol presence that gives just enough of a warming palate. Very tasty and best of the night.
