3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ Aakjaers, Esbjerg.
Pours clear red amber with a fine, medium, frothy off-white head. Good duration, and fine lacing. Rather spicy and earthy aroma with a sweetish toffee touch. Fine, frothy creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sadly a bit metallic, lots of sweet caramel thickness. Light citric bitter. If the metallic notes weren’t there, this would be really great. Still, with that slight off-flavour, it’s very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle (Dec 07) from Monument in Concord, CA. Spicey, roasted caramel aroma. Dark amber color that didn’t last long, and neither did the white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is caramel, almost hinting of cola. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Rather mild, but there is enough bitter to balance the malt. A very calm and relaxing experience. Good stuff.
