3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Skjold Burne, Aarhus.
Deep brown to black with a medium, fairly creamy, beige head. Aroma has heavy vanilla caramel sweetness, almost like Werthers Echte. Rye bread, oak, sweet toffee. Lowish carbonation, fat and quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour has surprisingly little toffee - there is some, but fairly subdued. Heavy oak at first, roasted malts,lots of vanilla, milky chocolate, dry and roasted. Very nice, even if the aroma is a bit much. And the original was better.
