3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaske. Ikke så megen duft, men stor smag. Ekstrem sød men ikke hvinende. Derimod en fin balance til den megen alkohol som gør at denne kun detekteres til sidst i en slurk. Yderst delikat. Men dog for en dimensionel til at komme over 4.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2009 Dark brown colour. Sweetness comes through in the aroma and taste. Quite malty and sugary sweet flavour. Technically it is very good. Texture is thick, syrupy and unctuous. Overall something more than a strong sense of sweetness is expected from this beer but it doesn’t deliver.

A rich fruity beer with some caramel and dark fruit flavors, looks great with its cloudy appearance. This is a real winner.
