thewolf (11557) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Bottle, from Citti, Flensburg. Pours a clear redish brown with a BIG beige bubbly head - filling up most of my tulip glass. Aroma has dark dried fruits, and a little toffee. Quite low in carbonation compared to the giant head. Flavour is surprisingly roasted with an undertone of raisins and plums. There is a definite dark bitterness to the end - perhaps a little chocolate even.

madsberg (10805) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 4, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Unclear. Way too much head, even though you pour the beer gentle. Yeast, fruit (apple) and sirup in the aroma. Vague fruity, alcaholdense and malty flavour. Alcahol is too dominant for my likings. Very vague aftertaste. Alcahol is dominant again. Not a beer I'll drink again.

clear dark reddish colour, fine creamy head, nice lace, peachy and malty aroma, smooth, sweet and heavy, dry fruity finish - lacks of balance

Bottle. Pours a brown color with a small head of very big bubbles. Nose is pure malt and maybe dried fruits. Flavor profile is nutty, malty, sweet. Not bad. Not amazing either.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 22, 2008
Courtesy of Fonefan. Red-brown with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is sweet and malty with notes of candy sugar and light fruit. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt, candy sugar and a light citrussy bitterness. Ordinary IMO.
