3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 Bottle, 75cl corked, Ørbæk edition. It’s an unclear one, dark amber in color and topped by a big, dense, off-white head. The aroma is roasted, with caramel and licorice. Perhaps a spiced hint, but the alcohol level is well hidden. It’s warming and full bodied, nicely carbonated, and with flavors of sweetness, licorice, some roasted malt and a spiced touch. Sweet finish. Although a bit warming on the palate, it’s a fine beer, not overly complex, but tasteful and pleasant. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. 121130
Bottle, 33cl, Stensbogaard edition. An almost clear one, dark amber in color and with a small, beige head. The aroma is lightly roasted, with a little caramel and some notes of dms. Some sweetness in the flavor, with roasted malts and caramel. Quite full-bodied and lighlty warming on the palate, soft carbonation. Some bitterness towards the end. Think I prefer the Ørbæk batch. 140118
