12th January 2013
Very hazy brown beer, big pale tan-cream coloured head. Nose of slightly oxidised caramel malt. Palate is comparatively light and crisp. Rich malt with a little caramel. Nice Port Wine red and black fruits. Dried fruits and a touch of brandy. Finishes semi dry. A rich and heady brew, this has aged well.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Mikkeller Bar, May 2012. (the bottle cost 200 DKK)
Dark brown with a small head. The aroma was rather heavy and complex with a lot of malt, fruit, some plums and dust. The taste was vinous and sweet with toffee, dried fruit, yeast, malt and notes of alcohol. A very nice beer that I never though that I would try.
