Tap @ Ørsted Ølbar, Cph.
Pours clear deep red with a small, creamy, white head. Fine lacing. Aroma is quite hoppy, sweet, Nelson Sauvin?, coriander, light cinnamon and fresh-cut grass. Some yeasty notes of dried fruits as well. Medium carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is quite weird, malty sweet, quite a lot of fresh hoppiness and light spiciness. Some chocolate, yeast, sap, pine. Weird and unbalanced, but still kinda attractive.

(Bottle, 0.75 l, from Alko Arkadia) Poured deep red with brown notes and clear. Medium sized, whizzy and lightly tan coloured head. Aroma was dominated by hops but also clear notes of spices and dark fruits were present. Body was full with quite fizzy carbonation. Tasted of malts, spices, hops, bitterness, salty liquorice and dark fruits. Sweet, spicy and bitter aftertaste. The hoppiness (or was it the spices uses) surprised.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl bottle. Very dark brown, small tanned head with tigh lace. Very strong spruce needles on the nose, little dark syrupy malts, hint of chocolate toffee. Flavor has loads of resiny hops, sweet darker maltiness, licorice, alcohol warmth, pine lingers on in the slightly hollow mentholey finish, apparent candi sugar in there too. Nearly full bodied, soft strong carbonation, a bit sticky palate. Very pleasant, that foresty needle theme fits with the season.
