COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in a limited amount for the Copenhagen Beer Festival (Københavnske Øldage 07). It's a sweetish beer with lots of body, it's smooth and pleasant and the alcohol is only just noticeable.

Cloudy dark chocolate coloured beer. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Rich sweet malt that has traces of ginger and sweet fruit. The alcohol is noticeable but not unpleasantly so, the aniseed provides counterbalance to the sweet malt. Warming afterglow. Tasty beer.

A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris O’s Pre GBBF Tasting
Murky brown with a thin tan head. Lots of caramel and dark fruit with all the sweetness carried pretty well by some pleasant roast and bitterness. Thick and chewy and very enjoyable. Good stuff.
