3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy mahogny, lacing offwhite head. Spicy caramel aroma with some nuttiness. Good nutty flavours, medium bitterness. A fruity bock ( the blueberries is a good addition) that may not rock your world, but is still highly drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught Hazy amber: small yellow head. Sweet cake and spicy wood, some resin. Starting very good with resin, then tumbles down to rosewater. First impression is heaven, at the end it is just dead. Sickly palate, way too many restsugars, not even fruity. Weird. Then again, with such a name...

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, bought @ Christian X, Tønder.
Pours a muddy red with a small, creamy, off-white head - more bubbly round the edges - fine duration. Light fruity aroma, caramel and raisins. High carbonation, a bit light. Flavour is malty, light roasted, some clear dried fruits - mostly raisins. Fine, hoppy finish. Good, but still a bit blah.
