3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle, pours a burnt amber with a red hue in the light and a thin head, the aroma is of candy sugar with dark fruit and plum, the flavor is of dark fruit on the front end with a little bit of alcohol burn in the finish, nothing out of this world but still enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Reddish brown beer with a strong brownish head. The aroma is roasted and malty, and the flavour is quite deeply spiced with a gingerness about it and a bitter roasted and malty finish. Overall a reasonable strongly malty and spiced beer.

Flaske: Orange brun klar øl med en stor skumkrone. Meget karbonering. Fin duft af malt og en smule frugt. Smagen er frisk grundet den store karbon ering men stadig en stor maltsødme. Udmærket øl.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nose has toffee, malts, alcohol and a touch of vanilla. Flavors are very complex. I get fruits (pears and oranges), spicey bread, some licorice. A background of brown sugars, some vanilla, alcohol, and yes even a little coconut. It has a full body and finishes slighty bitter and dry. I think this is a great beer and should get a second chance if it was rated poorly. It is very interesting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep chestnut pour, with a medium sized off-white head. Tons of raisin in this, with candy sugar, dried dark fruit, clove, nutmeg, and light cinnamon. The alcohol comes through slightly and is warming. Like spiced raisin bread. Decent.
