COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark, spicy and wholesome bottom fermented luxury beer. Besides pilsener malt, dark malts have also been used, which gives a richer, but also slightly heavier caramel character. Honey has been added.

Foffern (1298) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2012
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. The colour is very deep reddish brown with a medium beige compact and coffee-like head. Wonderful sweet aromas of chocolate, sweet malt, dades, some roast, little bit of lactose and ice coffee. Very nice flavours as well with some of the same things; chocolate, dried fruit and caramel. Has a slick mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. A surprisingly balanced and good dunkel.

Countbeer (4739) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2013
Bottled as Knuthenborg Bryg Dark: Thanks to Papsø: Served in a Chouffe glass: Dark brown pour. Medium sozed beige to light brown ish foamy head on top of a deep dark hazy brown colored beer. Aromas of liquorice, toast, toasted malts, leaves, autumnal herbs, some soap and some chalk. Flavours of liquorice, raisin, flowers, toast, some dried prunes, bitter, sweet tar, brown sugars, cream, autumnal herbs, rye, hint of older leaves, bread, yeast and a sprinkle of some spices. Overall a sweet raisiny and liquorice flavour. Aftertaste is a smooth mix of raisin, toast, creamy autumnal herbs, liquorice and bread. Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller body and a creamy light oiky texture. For 5.5% this is thick, quite strong and filled with toast, raisin and especially liquorice. Nice beer. I like it.

NosirIwont (2006) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2005
Draft @ the brewpub. Pours a deep brown colour with a thick off-white/beige head. Sweet aroma with an acidic touch - a lot like yoghurt (strawberry or raspberry, I believe). Weird! Spicy notes as well. Flavour is sweet and malty with a bitter finish. Fruity notes and faint notes of chocolate. That yoghurt-thing is in the flavour as well, although faint.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2006
On draught at the brewpub, August 2005. Rich, dark brown colour - somewhere between a Dunkel and a Schwarzbier. Big fluffy, off-white head. The aroma is dominated by malty elements - caramel, toffee and a dollop of butterscotch (but not too instrusive). More caramel in the flavour but there’s a touch of hoppy bite too, producing a clean and fresh tasting beer. Pretty decent.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2012
0.5 L bottle from Kræs&Kram, Nordby, Samsø. Very dark, reddish brown body with good clarity. A layer tan fish-eyes on top. Rounded, dark caramel-scented malts to the nose. Notes of sweet bakery and raisins. Clean, medium full malt body. On the sweet side, yet with a certain freshness. Nice dark caramel flavor, some dark dried fruits, and a discreet peppery bitterness. Well- bodied. Smooth and juicy in the mouth. Rounded malt finish. Very likeable.

Amber, creamy beige head. Smell of caramel, fruity malts, dark fruits and raisins, complex spices and yeast. Medium sweet, dark fruits and dried fruts, also some nuts. Moderate bitter finish. Quite complex and interesting. Probably the best i tried of Søgaard during my stay in Aalborg
