Christian (11278) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2013 Bottle at Cafe Biografen. Dark brown with a lasting light brown head. Malty aroma with caramel and licorice notes, spice and fruit, a little alcohol and a touch of green apples. Sweetish malty flavour with fruit, molasses, caramel, spice and alcohol. 3.6.

On tap several times at Christian Firtal and Carlsens Kvarter: No sign of the green apple notes. Very subdued alcohol. More chocolate character. Much better. Another bottle in February 2013 was still problematic

Medium carbonation, lovely creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has a bit of a vinious bite, but also wonderful cocoa and Nutella. Piney, light roasted bitterness. A touch of yeast. Nice.

madsberg (10459) - 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.

from Erzbierschof - black beer with a rather poor beige foam left; aroma of black chocolate with some coriander on top of it; pretty sweet; full-bodied; a light earthy tartness, residual sweetness with hints of candi sugar and chocolate; some lingering sharpness - not really convincing
