3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Denmark souvenier. Almost black, hint of red, smooth white head. Aroma is licorice, some alcohol, roasty. Taste is licorice, roasty, medium body, little stale. Easy going stout, quite tasty somehow.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a deep brown body with a ruby red taint and a small off-white head. Nose is heavy salt-ish licorice tones bordering on salmiac, with hints of caramel and herbs in the back. Weird, and not too good. Taste is definitely better; sweet licorice, tobacco, grains, caramel and hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Not the best integration of flavors, and it seems a bit lackluster, but nevertheless pretty decent. Full to medium body and thinly carbonated with leaves it a bit flat and one-dimensional. Not very impressive from Skovlyst.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Cuso, thanks. Aroma is herbal, liquorice, light coffee, very light hops. Taste is mostly liquorice, light milk chocolate, light roasted. Unusual, but I liked it. Dark brown colour, brown head. My first sweet stout, it was not what I expected, but nevertheless a tasty and drinkable beer. Alcohol hidden well.

Bottle from rosenbergh, many thanks. Shared with Gurthnar. Dark brown color with medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, licorice. Taste, roasted sweet malt, coffee, licorice, dried fruits. Very light bitterness in finish. Little bit more on sweet side, but definitely highly drinkable beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with airy light tan head. Dark aroma of malt and caramel, slightly distorted by a mildly metallic finish. Bittersweet, roasty flavour of malt and spice. Richly carbonated. Not bad for the type, but not anything really extraordinary.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Browmn with a very nice red shine, creamy cappucino lace. Strong licorice and herb aroma. Fairly sweet sugary entry, caramel, fennel, in general strong spices - kongen af danmarks dråber. Slightly lightbodied, mellow mouthfeel, dry finish. Loved the aroma, flavourwise it seems a little muddled - pushing some of that sweetness into the back would help I think.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours very dark with reddish tint. Aroma is very liquorice with some saltyness. Taste is also liquorice, but with a lot of sweetness and maybe caramel. Medium body. If you like liquourice this is definitely one to try. It does however seem like a lot of ingredients for just that one taste. Decent beer.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark back with half to one finger head off white head which disappear quite quickly (in snifter). Aroma sweet with a metallic hint, not too interesting. Tastes awesome, dark roasted malts with coffee, caramel and liquorice, very drinkable full bodied stout.
