330ml bottle picked up at Magasin Du Nord. Dense, beige head covering a clear, red-brown coloured body. Spotty lacing to the glassware. Dried fruity aroma, some alcohol vapour and notes of sweet malts. Caramel malts, dried fruits, and golden syrup creating a marmalade-like taste profile. Dry, mid-sweet ending. Subdued alcohol. Has got its moments of interests (hotel room, Copenhagen 23.03.2013).

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Unclear reddish brown beer with a nearly flat small tan head. Caramel, toffee, herbs, roast, yeast, lightly fruity in the nose. The taste is medium sweet with a medium bitter finish that seems to come from juniper, not from the hops. Notes of juniper, licorice, tree. Bold, oily. Low carbonation. A little boring, too sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. A slightly hazy one, amber in color and with a small, off-white head. Dried apricots, prunes, caramel and a faint note of alcohol and cellar on the nose. Dark malt extract too. The flavor is sweet and malty, caramel and spices chime in. Not to forget juniper. Full-bodied, lacking a bit on carbonation I think. A quite interesting beer, although a bit ordinary. Ordinary but unusual that is. Maybe it needs some food to show its potensial. 101210
