madsberg (9628) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2012
Bottled. Dark reddish Brown coloured. Dense light Brown head. Aroma. Caramel, sweetness, Brown sugar, Spice, plums, prunes, light alcohol. Flavour. Sweetness, coriander, light vanilla, roast, caramel, ripe fruits. Definite portwine character. Medium to full bodied. Ends sweet anf fruity with a light Spicy touch. Delicious, but The reel question is. Is it really necessary with all these Indian Spices in a Danish beer?. Why not use the traditional danish Spices like liqourice, orangepeel, cloves and cinnamon.

FatPhil (8552) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 28, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2014 750ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Pungent hoppy aroma, very raw - seems like it might appreciate some ageing, lots of orange peel. Quite different in the taste, this one is ready to drink now, unlike previous SLHs I’ve had young, despite the clues the aroma gave. Nice rich roasty body. Smooth palate, nice carbonation. Mellow roasty finish. Look forward to trying one with a little bit of age on it too. 6-12 months would be good, I guess.
Rerate: 750ml bottle - 15 months aged.(7+:5:7+:4:14=3.7++)
Beautiful aroma, sweet, very gently spiced belgian strong dubbel to almost porter roast. Lovely black, small tan head. Spicey estery retronasals, great roast nice and toasty. Nice little burnt finish, and some nice biting noble hops. Mellow rich roast finish, fills out very nicely

VsXsV (1883) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Opaque dark brown liquid with medium to big, firm light tan head. Very good head retention and nice lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, pumpernickel, chocolate, licorice, raw sugar, bitter orange peel, some light spices and fruity belgo yeast esters. Taste is quite dry and light to medium bitter with a nice, bready maltiness notes of chocolate, orange and light spices. Full bodied with a pleasantly soft carbonation. Good stuff. Not boozy at all like last year’s vintage and also well balanced.
