Brown 0,5L btl 7,5% pours a tiny head on the dark brown body, some lacings.
Scents of chocolate malts, caramel malts, fruity sweet scents overall.
Very smooth gentle creamy chocolate taste, creamy malts.
Good body. Smooth carbonation. Fine on palate.
Finishes slightly flourish, the chocolate malts still dominate this beer, lingering with fruity notes,
Overall a decent beer for afterdinners, cozy times and so on.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany, big off-white head with excellent retention and lacing. Nose is a whole lotta malt, some caramel, faint smokiness. Mouth is medium bodied, subtly semisweet, malt forward, plenty of caramel, dates, some roast, toasted pumpernickel, molasses, faint smoky flavor like in the nose. ABV is nicely hidden, and this is a pretty straightforward brew. Skål!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, leaves, juniper, alcohol, some grapefruit, weird. Flavour is medium-sweet, caramel/toffee without the sweetness, a little salty, leafy hops, alcohol, something else I can’t put my finger on, a little herbal. Bitter finish. Medium-bodied, a little sticky. Not convinced.

Aroma is sweet and quite vinous with milk chocolate, raisins, dates, hazelnut, vanilla, coffe and light roast notes. some red berries and some well integrated alcahol. Taste has more booze, a bit sticking. Flavor is sweet with dark chocolate, coffee, red berries, nuts, earthiness and some burnt roastiness. Finishes drier and somewhat tart.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark red brown, small offwhite head. Spicy, nutty, malty aroma. Taste the same with clearly present alcohol which slowly moves into the background as the beer heats up a little. Still a little rough, though. Well balanced bitterness. Lively carb, creamy mouthfeel.
