3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 5.7% ABV. Pours deep brown with a small beige head that quickly collapses into a thin coating on the border of the glass, and finally disappears completey. Some lacing. The aroma has caramel, dark dried fruits, spices (cinnamon maybe?), malts, brown cane sugar. The taste is sweet and balanced by a hint of bitterness and acidity. The palate is very smooth. Very drinkable and typical Christmas beer.

Odense Late Summer Post-Munkekonge Whale Spotting Night. Hazy chestnut colour, with a thick and lasting off-white head. Malty aroma of nuts and chocolate, with dried fruit, and a little leather/smoke. Sweet and thick with malty and fruity flavour. Pretty decent beer, but too sweet for me

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a watery coffee, somewhat flat. Tastes sweetly malts, bit chocolate, laid down fruits and with some bitterness. But this was also quite watery, which took away from the overall impression.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.4l bottle. Looks quite good in the glass with a nice big dark brown head that’s leaving some good lacings on top of a really deep dark brown, almost black colored body. On the nose I get a good amount of coffee grit and yeasty notes. Almost nutty yeasty and it also has some good roasted tones all the way. Not much sweetness (as promised on the bottle, at least not on the aroma). It’s also quite low on the sweetness in the taste. Again it feels quite coffee infused this. Dark near roasted malty flavors with both cardboard and dry chocolate. A bit thin and weak on the mouthfeel while the carbonation is gentle a somewhat soft. Not what I was expecting or hoping for to be honest, but it’s definitely not bad tasting in any way. 27.11.2013
