Muddy light copper beer with a big and firm tan head leaving some lace. Heavy malty aroma with a green apple note. Sweet and malty flavour covered by a very dominating alcohol. Way too sweet, way to alcoholic.

TheDog (577) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2008 Bottle 25 cl. Hazy orange colour with a thin off white head. Spicy and sweet aroma and taste of sweet roasted malts, brown sugar and honey. It´s allmost vinous and very rich of taste. A bit too sweet for me but I like the way they´ve hidden the 12% alcohol. Nice prize: dkr. 12,- in Fakta so overall impression must be 12 :-)
