3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Brown color. Melon, butter and flowers in the aroma. Sweet flavor, buttery with pineapple and ripe melons. Malty, but also flowery hops, especially coming up in the aftertaste. Characterful and quite good, actually.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Bottled at Sir Club. Amber with a small white head. Aroma of malt, mostly caramel and bready notes. Quite sweet malty flavour, with some alcohol. A few years ago, I wrote that it might improve with age. Now, it has improved simply by becoming a.much better beer....

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at KØ09. Sherry aroma, seems a little oxidized. Clear dark brown colour. No head. Peppery flavour, very caramelly and extremely sweet. Way too sweet, and not balanced enough by the alcohol which is actually quite strong.
