3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty murky brown with some red. Lasting light beige head. Touch of butterscotch. Dried fruit and some cherry. Dry and light bodied. Some bread crust and plum. A little acidic but more in a fruity way and some caramel richness as well. An interesting strong dark ale. Hard to really figure out and nothing to really latch in to. Not bad, but I can think of a lot of easy substitutes that I would rather go for.

On draft at Mikkeller, pours dark with brown head and nice lacing. Raisins and dark fruit in aroma. Sweet bread in flavor and a long lasting rather bitter finish

(draft @ The Old Toad Mikkeller Beer Dinner) Dark caramel color with a thin tan head. Big malt aroma with a ton of spice and yeast. Caramel flavors and malt abound with a big helping of candy sugar and yeast near the middle. Nice and spicy at the finish. Utterly fantastic.

Let this bottle chill for about 20 minutes. An unbelievable combination of cholate, tar, toffee, and other sweet stuff. The beer compliments the good sweet stuff with nice strong alcohol burn. I would suggest this beer to be drank when your at home an\d pissed of at your girlfriend.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brownish pour. Minimal head.
Smells like autumn leaves, rain, yeast and bread.
Taste is leafy with herbs, dark bread, cocoa and a bit of raisins.
I have tried this a few times but I haven´t got a very strong impression of it.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a corked and caged 750ml bottle. This beer has aromas of carmel and bread and dough with hints of banana. The appearance is beautiful, with a deep red color with a small offwhite head that quickly disappears. The taste is very complex with cocoa, caramel, toffee, dough, raisin notes all coming through at very stages. The finish is long and lovely. This is a keeper.

Pours a dirty brown body with thin head, especially for the style. Aroma of dark fruit, caramel, vanilla. Pretty spot on for style, however, slightly undercarbonated, which detracts. Not as good as many in the style. The ABV is well hidden. Not worth the extra $$$, as I can get better within the style at a cheaper price point.
