Small beige head. Clear deep red body with carbonation. Earthy toffee and wild berry aroma with butterscotch and toasted grain notes. Sweet roasty butterscotch taste with fruity spicy notes. Full-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Sweet roasty earthy peppery aftertaste with fruity chocolate notes. Wow. Amazingly rich and flavourful, yet soft and easy to drink.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from bursprak. Many thanks! Dark amber colour, almost no foam. Soft carbonation. Aroma of raisins, sherry and caramel. Also light tart notes. Could be good but it’s unfortunately very watery.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Plovmand, thanks! Alcohol soaked raisins, coconut, vanilla, light chocolate, nuts and almonds. Like a nice liquor, the alcohol doesn’t come across offensive. Light astringent finish with a dash of coffee. The flavour depth, however, does not match that of the aroma and with time the beer becomes rather dull., almost watery given the style. Not bad but I expected more.

BBD: Jan 2019.
In short: Some dry dark ale.
Pours dark copper with little tan head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Caramel, malty, raisins, liquorice aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, slightly oily texture. Taste is quite sweet, plums, raisins, liquorice, little buttery notes. Lacks more diacetils and maybe has a bit more carbonation than expected for a scotch ale. It becomes some dry with ripe fruit flavours, like some other scandinavian fruity sour ales (i’m thinking of Rhodette or maybe Tornerose).Quite peculiar brew.
