3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle at home, bought in the wine shop in hillerød close to kalinka. (skjold burne?) clear dark amber with a sizeable offwhite thick nice looking head.
mid "beery" aroma, sligthly metallic, but probably hops making it that way.
flavor is caramle, faint roasted stuff, brown sugar, malts. faint flowery hops. even though it is a little on the sweet side, it is very drinkable, it never gets cloying. i didn’t get the blueberries but after reading it has blueberies i do taste some dark fruits. nice brew, not extreme, but drinkable and tasty. Good for non-beer-geeks i guess.

Bottle.50cl. Fine and sweet bock, but the hops taste like they is a bit old, never the less is like it, dark beer with a dark and deep taste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Reminds me of something Harboe could have brewed. Dark golden colour and a bit unclear. Has an off-white head, mostly diminihing. Aroma has notes of sweet, cheap malt. Sweet flavor too. Way too expensive.

0.5 l bottle. Hazy reddish brown color with creamy head. Sweet, toffeish and caramelly aroma with a hint of glue. Sweetish, toffeish, toasty, berryish and warming flavor. OK bock.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle that was picked up in Denmark, Sept 08. Pours hazy amber in colour with a white head, some yeastiness on nose and in mouth and also a little banana. Little soft in mouth, sweetness a bit pushy at times, its decent but not great.

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.

100ml from tap at EBF 08. Patchwork on the surface of an amber-copper body. Sweet fruity smell. Ditto taste, just a little more spicy. Light bitterness in the palate. Clean tasting (Copenhagen, 14.09.2008).

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...
