2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration. It pours a more or less black body, without head. The aroma has lemongrass and lots of lime, but where’s the roasted malts and coffee gone? There’s some roasted malts in the flavor, but most of all it’s the lime playing. It’s full-bodied, sweetish and nicely carbonated, finishing with even more lime. Well, certainly not my cup of tea, a waste to ruin a perfectly good beer by adding all this lime flavor. 1205115

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 11.05.2012, tap @ CBC:
Krydra parfymert lukt med preg av mørk malt, humle, balsam, julelrydder, sitrusskal, gras, parfyme. Parfymert krydra smak av mørk malt, humle, parfyme, ingefær, kardemomme, kakao, balsam, askebeger. God bitterhet som set godt, uttørrande munnfølelse. Merkelig.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tap at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012.
This beer was an abomination.
Pours black with a fine tan head. Huge nose of orange peel and pine needles - quite reminiscent of Pine-Sol, as endorsed by that kindly African American woman on TV. There’s also lemon frozen ice in the aroma. The flavor is absolutely awful: tons of lemon, burnt malts, toilet cleaner, more Pine-Sol (not that I’ve tasted Pine-Sol...) and pine needles, and roasted malts. It’s syrupy, it’s medicinal. It’s revolting. The malts are too burned. Full bodied and flat. Fuck! It’s oily and faintly roasty on the finish. It looks OK and smells...interesting...but the rest of this beer is just awful. It’s basically undrinkable. To think that somebody tasted this and said, "Yep, that’s ready to sell!" is a scary notion.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours a pitch black beer with a beige head. The aroma is malt, roasted, citrus, citrus peel and notes of perfume. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall a good beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap at CBC, May 2012. It pours very dark brown, with a thin tan head. The nose is dominated by citrus peel, floral, potpourri, parma violets and soap. The taste is what expect toilet cleaner to be like, soap, intense citrus peel, parma violets, spice, underlying sweet caramel, milk chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and medicinal notes. Full body, moderate carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Unbalanced and challenging to drink.
