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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki, Belgian Beer Weeks 2007). For all the malt-lovers out there. Rich ruddy brown colour, and a taste to match. Sweet caramel malts are dominant, but with enough nuttiness and spiciness to make it quite interesting and not 1-dimensional. Did I mention huge amounts of malt?

Bottled, 330ml from Carrefour, Coquelles, France. Amber with white head. This proved to be quite a sweetish, caramel beer, toffee but with a yeasty spiciness and light lemonade note. Pleasant and easy drinking, quite decent.

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.
