3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with a redish hue and a dense tan head. Dried fruity sweet aroma, distinct caramel malt too. Sweet raisin and plum flavour with a solid caramel malt sweetness. Toffee and mild fruit notes lingering into the finish. Alcohol can be sensed, but mainly through adding viscosity to the beer and not in the flavour. Holds a warming finish though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle 33 cl) 7,5% ABV in my version. Deep reddish brown with a smallish off-white head. Very malty, full body. Smooth and sweetish but never cloying - there’s enough hops to add balance. Notes of dried fruit - and plenty of it. This almost reminds me of dark Belgian trappists. Yummy. 120101

Bottled. Dark brown colour, brown small head. Aroma is alcohol, sweet malts and caramel. Flavour is sweet caramellish malts along with plum and alcohol. Wellbalanced, and the alcohol shows mostly like a warming touch in the finish.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2007 Bottle at Københavnske Øldage 2007, 2007-05-11, 7-4-7-4-15=37
Mahogany color. Late evidence of caramel and malt aroma. Full malty body, powerful, a lot of caramel, some sweetness. Very good.
Bottle, 2006-01-10, 6-4-7-3-13=33
Dark brown color, thin creamy head. Strong aroma, mature, of caramel, and a hint of very ripe apples. Quite thick body in the beginning, malty, sweet, with loads of caramel, but also a bit metallic at the end, and underhopped. Average (too much unbalanced and without complexity).
