3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin head; ’flat white’ coffee like in texture. Dirty caramel brown in colour. Malty nose, firm, a touch bitter, nice chocolate lift. Powerful palate, dark malts, slightly stewed. Heat is apparent but in check, and balance is ok. Quite a meal of beer given the malt driven and alcohol. Nice fizz levels throughout. Good but IMHO not a 100 pointer.

Dark brown with a bit of larger sediment floating around. Sweet caramel aroma. Lots of good dark malty flavours without the alcohol being too overwhelming although it does have a nice warming effect.

Put off cracking the cap on this for a month my loss. The aroma scared me(in a good way) in that it jumped out at me with malt, vanilla, and alcohol. Rolling golden pour that was as inviting as the aroma. An off white to tan head and a slightly cloudy body that when held to the light is a lite amber. The intial flavor of this beer is slightly sweet and fruity with alcohol. It finishes with a slightly bitterness with an alcohol kicker. This beer is light and creamy in the mouth with lively carbonation. I can’t say anything bad about this beer. EXCELLENT!

A special brew. Big, hearty, earthy aromas predominate. Sweet, candi sugars can be noticed in the background inviting one to dive in to its thick, brown, moussy head and rich, textured darkness. Lingering aftertaste leaves you wishing the bottle would never end.

This beer introduces itself with a hearty aroma of wheat, yeast, malt, and caramel. It is a sediment filled brown solution with a thick light brown head that is slow to fade. When it does fade it leaves heavy lacing. This is a thick beer that fills the mouth with a robust wheat and yeast taste. The taste fades leaving a biscuity taste lingering in the throat.

Really splendid beer. Cloudy brown with limited head. Very sophisticated taste with hints of caramel, wood, vanilla, citrus. Wonderful palate that feels great in your mouth.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown color with a thin bubbly white head. Aroma was very much like authentic vanilla bean rum. Strong notes of vanilla, with an alcohol presence, citrus notes follow up the nose. The flavor was warming with notes of dark fruits, citrus, apple, vanilla bean, and light caramelized oak. Mouthfeel was highly carbonated and fizzy. Very nice.

Købt i Superbrugsen for 35 kr. (70 cl. flaske). Øllen er rød-brun med flot brunt skum
Øllen er tung, men alligevel meget fyldig og rund. Eftersmagen varer længe, og er god.
Alcohollen dominerer dog en del.
Er en del bedre end Abt 8’eren
Øl, som skal drikkes i små mængder.
