3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
black with ruby reflexes, small but long-lasting tanned foam; dark berries, floral, some chocolate or coffee; medium sweetness, lightly bitter, noticable alcohol; full body, thick feel, average carbonation, long dry finish;
Overall: there are better quadruples (alcohol a little bit too noticable) but still, it’s a very good beer

Rating #607, bottle from Toft Vin Islands Brygge
A redbrown beer with only a small head. Aroma is berries and wood, chocolate, liqourice, though a bit tart and alcoholic as well. Flavor of berries, especially elderberries and blackcurrant, thereupon some chocolate and a bit yeast. A notch of alcohol and medium bitter finish. Thick and creamy palate.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Dark chocolate pour with a thick mid-tan head. Nose is out of this world; some dark berries, cherry and blackcurrant, some toffee and treacle, caramel and raisins. Freshly spun sugar. I could plop my nose in the glass all day, but I’m desperate to see if it lives up to it in the taste... wham! It does, sort of - quite a thick drink, and those dark berries give it a sort of vinous quality but that 11% ABV makes itself know quite early on. A mild alcohol burn and a whack of alcohol tastes somewhat overpowers this and takes away from the malty warm profile it would otherwise have. I think this could benefit greatly from ageing. Delicious, if a little overbearing.
