3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy, nutty brown with a tall, creamy, off-white head leaving a pretty lacework. Vinous, port-like aroma with notes of dried fruit. Quite a full and rich body with lightly sweet, dark malt accents. Touches of yeast and a lot of dried fruit. Never gets overly sweet. Quite a complex brew. 081206

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very small and surprisingly low white head. Beer too cold maybe. Hazy dark brown body. Dry and spciy barley malt aroma (promising). Quite sweet actually, flavor interesting though with raisins, plums, caramel and maybe juniper berries. Alcohol percentage well hidden. Liquorice - sorry no, mates.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2007 Raised numbers at 2007 re-rating. Muddy red brown with a big off-white head. Malt and yeast aroma with caramel and a hint of spice, cinnamon and vanilla. Complex spicy-fruity flavour, sweet but with a licorice-y dryness. Too fizzy for my taste, but if it’s designed for the Danish market, that might be a clever move. Less fizzy in 2007?
