Sweet nose with caramel, malt and some sugar. Taste is also quite sweet, dark caramel follows from nose, mild bitterness. Not too much carbonisation, surprisingly. Good to drink.

TorbenJensen (1457) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2015
The beer has a nice sustained and light brown foam. The strong scent of caramel from the hard-roasted malt. In the flavoring mixes are also a little fruit, as best I can recognize as orange. Furthermore, a light touch of hop. Taste is first marked by sweet caramel malt, then it becomes slightly fruity in flavor before it all ends in a very light taste of dark chocolate and a pleasant light hop bitterness persistent and very tasteful. Although the terms of taste is very far from other bock beer styles it nevertheless has a great richness that makes it very suitable to enjoy to food or simply as an aperitif.
