For me this one seemed like it was going to be great and then fell down. Pours mahogany with a bit of a small tan head. The aroma has buttermilk biscuits, dense semi-sweet toffee, vanilla and cream - very nice. It has a medium body that is on the sharp side. The taste begins with thick alcoholic malt, some acidity and lots of burn ~ this was nothing like the aroma. The finish has more burn and is on the medicinal side.

hazy dark amber, fine beige head,
sweet fruity aroma with light earthy hops,
rich malt flavor, lots of ripe fruit character, warming, light bitterness adds balance but allows the fruit to steal the show,

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2007 Fad. Manglede lige det sidste for at blive rigtig god. Diskret smag af alkohol men ellers en rigtig god abt.
Edit: Ved nærmere eftertanke får den et par ekstra point for at være yderst drikbar. Min ven der ikke kan lide øl fandt den udemærket.

Sample at WLV with Mikkel. Cloudy, dark brown with small beige head. Aroma is a lot of alc but nice dark and red fruits with some molasses as well. Flavor is fruity, dry, alcy but pretty pleasing. Medium body and a little hot. Really nice.

(thanks to yespr and mpls. crew for sharing) Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma of raisin, grape, and some yeast. Taste is quite sweet and fruity, with some yeast on the finish, fairly thick.

Poured in the presence of the Man himself! Translucent copper with a short off-white head. The aroma picked up deep caramel and dark fruity sugars with some prickly, leafy hoppage.. came off as dry and very well-presented. The flavor found toasty caramel and sweet darker fruit sugars again with moderate floral hoppage that stuck through the finish.. nice yeasty esters throughout. Medium-bodied with nice balance between the sweet notes, yeast, and bitterness.. warm, quite dry, and almost grainy at the back-end and finish.
