Cask; Seasonal - Winter. Also available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles.
A deep ruby red strong ale with an excellent balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. A classic example of a ’winter warmer’; high in alcohol and rich in taste.

Chocolate and coffee malty aroma, roasted. Smooth. Black coloured with a lasting, thin, brown head. Taste is quite sweet, spicy, chocolate/toffee and coffee malty, heavily roasted, some licorice. Bit hoppy. Thick and sticky. Moderate bitter finish. Okay brew.

madsberg (10595) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2004
Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Spices, malt and some chocolate notes in the aroma. Flavour is as good as the aroma. Loads of malts, chocolate and some hoppy notes. Is warming. Ends on a bitter note. Very pleasant brew, that goes well with a game of dart.

muddy dark rum appearance with large bubbles. OK drink and hops and spices,burnt toffee, sweetish molasses, oily coffee but kind of doesn’t work all together. A typical UK beer brought in by LCBO - their committee of 13 preference. A weak porter?

I think most people that had this beer will agree with me that it is very special. While I’ve had it without knowing of what style it was, I’ve had the time of my life trying to identify it. Porter? Stout? It has coffee and alcohol. A beautiful dark and ruby color. The head was next to none. Still it had a very complex taste, unlike many I have tasted. I must agree with Bark that this beer lacked a nice finish.

Bottle. The colour is very dark wine red (almost black). The foam is compact, pale beige and finger thick.

The smell is sweet, spicy with notes of coffee, cocoa, cinnamon, wort and a touch of smoked, burned malt.

The carbonation is soft and pleasant.

The taste could be divided into three stages: First, a very smooth sweet taste with some sour bitterness emerges. Then, a flavour of coffee and alcohol develops with a soft, sweet malty note. The finishing taste is reminds of a port wine with some dark chocolate. The aftertaste is a bit flat with some smoked notes.

I found this brew somewhat confusing and artificial. It seemed to lack that little extra body to give it a full palette.
