3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the zwergs. Amber brown. Butterscotch vanilla, burnt caramel, some darker fruity notes, towards raisins. Full bodied, with sweet cola flavours. Interesting. Isn’t as dark musty as many, but really cola- like sweet. Overripe musty fruits. I’m not really a fan of the style, but nice clean flavourful stuff.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) pours a murky ruby-brown colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of red grapes, caramel and powdered sugar, slightly meaty, with a hint of cola and raisins. flavour is very sweet, raisins, caramel and sweet spices are dominant, with some notes of herbal hops and powdered sugar. medium to heavy-bodied with soft carbonation. much too sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep brown hazy body with a bronze taint and a big, off-white head that vanishes rather quickly. Nose is sweet, buttery caramel, malt extract, toffee and that unmistakable "Midtfyn aroma". Pretty nice, though. Taste is very, very sweet and laden with expressive, massive tones of caramel - the home-made version where you take butter, sugar and a bit of cream and simmer it in a pan until it’s brown liquid ("knekk" in Norwegian). Some raisins and booze lurk underneath the surface too, along with traces of wood and the toffee version of caramel. This is too sweet for me, but could make as a nice dessert-like sipper I guess.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Red amber body and bubbly instable head. Pleasant herbal hops over amber malts. Sort of English ale with Eastern European appeal. Interesting but unexpected. Very sweet, but not quite the aromatics to justify these. Warming alcohol overpowers too. Unbalanced. (50cl bottle from SpeciaalBierPakket)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Aroma has caramel malts, raisin, some bread/rye and toffee. Hazy, red-brown coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is sweet, bit vinous, quite malty (caramel/toffee, raisin). Good body. okay beer.
