2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml bottle, best before November 2007, drank in June 2007.
I chose this beer (from my stash) because I had some Chilli Edam cheese my wife had bought for my Belgian beer night and I wouldn’t let her serve it because it would have ruined the tastebuds of everyone. I wanted to eat the cheese with a beer that would complement each other. My review is for the beer before I started eating the chilli cheese, although I enjoyed it more washing down the biscuits and cheese.
Poured into my Gordon’s Finest Gold thistle glass, it looks great.
Dark with an off white head.
The aroma is of sweet malts, the taste is weak and thin, so too the mouthfeel.
I thought this might be disappointing, I wasn’t mistaken, it will help wash down the chilli cheese.

Pour is mahogany brown, with a small slightly frothy tan head.
Aroma of slight roasted malts, slight hay, weak chocolate, slight hoppy notes. The Taste is rather bitter. Average body, with a fizzy carb. - should’ve done this tick in Danish;) (daaayuum)

Beautiful bottle with styly label. Almost black body. Modest bubbly head. Aroma of bread (dominant), syrup, herbs. The body is light to medium. Biterness comes up aling with finish & defines the aftertaste. Not bad. I personally rather like sweeter dark beers.
