Crafted by the master brewer of ’Old Speckled Hen’, this strong fine ale combines a distinctive malty taste with a satisfying smooth raisin finish. Brewed with a blend of 5x this is a delicious dark amber ale.

.3l on tap @ Harry’s Pours clear amber with low head. Aroma is nuts, alcohol, caramel, bready. Hops and roasted aromas. Flavor is mostly same. Really nice! Well balanced.

An interesting offering. There weren’t any off-flavors but the combination of soft tannin, toffee and raisins just don’t go together as well as you’d think. Maybe a smoother nitro pour would be more ideal here.

Aniela (4207) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2013
Deep amber beer with a small white head. Caramell and malty aroma. Dark fudge, fruity, malty sweet flvour with some bitter notes. Too sweet for me :-(

Cask at The Wharf, Aalborg, Denmark
Red amber color with small creamy head, nice lace. The aroma is very mild, malt and sugar. Soft and round mouthfeel; it has caramel flavor and correct bitterness, with light nutty/herbaceous touch and unfortunately some metallic feeling too.
Waste of the good 5X.

Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen. An amber beer with a fluffy beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and butterscotch. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, butterscotch, and spices, leading to a smooth finish.

Noticeably strong real ale but probably is its only defining characteristic.

Liberty Bounds Spoons. Clear amber beer. No real head. Smooth palate, no carbonation. A tad dry. Mild toffee caramel. Trace of estery pear. Some hop noticeable only by the bitterness it delivers in the semi dry finsh. Dull.
