4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
@ GJBF 2007. Another suprise at the festival. Aroma of berries, sweet malts, toasted, some alcohol and light floral. Flavor was outstanding. Fruity, spices, berries, sugary malts, cherries, light bitterness, and an alcohol finish. Dry, syrupy body. Really outstanding. refreshing.

Dark body an sweet taste. Strong, very filling, makes you feel good. I would recommend too many of them at one time, though. It can be pretty intoxicating.

Very nice strong ale. Very dark colour, and very sweety taste. After a while you can feel the gummy sweetness all around. Very good beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Flaske. Velafbalanceret øl, hvor alkoholen ikke får overtaget. En god del sødme, men det er svært at komme uden om i den type øl. Alt i alt ikke ringe.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Some sweet caramel and chocolate are my first impressions of the aroma and also on the first sip. Palate is full bodied, sweet, and warming. Mouthfeel is very round and smooth, yet remains quite assertive.
