COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Retro Half n´Half er rødlig-sort i farven og har et cremefarvet skum. Duften præges af blide ristenuancer. Mild, sødmefuld og ikke uden en vis krop ligger denne inspirerede øl godt i munden. Smagen karakteriseres af ristet brød, en anelse karamel og balancerende humle.
Velegnet til røde bøffer og kødretter, men kan også sagtens nydes uden for måltidet.

Nevalainen (596) - FINLAND - NOV 7, 2015
Dark brown color with tiny beige head. Aroma is roasty and caramel. Taste is sweetish with roasty flauvour. The body is not as strong as in stout, but is well balanced, so I am not missing any more taste in it. Good experience, like Svaneke beers almost always are.

djoeye (3639) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2016
Aroma; roasted malts, chocolate, leafy mild hops, attic, meadow floral scents of faint spices. Look; dark brown body with red edge, cream-beige head. Taste; chocolate, roasted malts, grassy soft hops, malted candies, fresh dark prunes, nut - leading to a roasted malty finish with a hop twist. Feel; dry’ish, ok body. Overall; I enjoyed all 50cls...I recommend Svaneke to keep the recipe for this beer unchanged from 2016 and after. [50cl.btl 5%abv BB.29.09.16 B@Kvickly Middelfart Fyn(island) Denmark]

MiP (15264) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle, 5.0%. Mild roasted aroma, rye bread, hint of hvidtøl. Almost clear dark brown colour. Good stable light brown head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma, roasted with good rye bread notes. Slightly sweet, but not sugary or anything like that. Subtle, but with enough flavour. Well-balanced.

PapaVillum (857) - Valby, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2014
50 cl, flaske, 5,0 %, købt i Kvickly i Spinderiet i Valby, 1. februar 2014. Sort ufiltreret øl med flot 1 1/2 cm moccafarvet skumkrone på toppen. En duft af ristet malt og morgenmadsprodukt. Chokolade. Lidt kaffe samt citrus. Smagen er stout-agtig og tør. Rimelig god balance mellem sødme og bitterhed, men et lidt vandet slutindtryk. Og knastør slutning. God mundfølelse med let tilpasset kulsyreindhold, som giver en lidt cremet fornemmelse. Iøvrigt et flot etiket-design. Dét, jeg særligt imponeres over med denne øl, er, at den indeholder så meget smag trods den forholdsvis lave alkoholprocent. Godt håndværk! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

darkseduction (714) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - OCT 15, 2014
Flasche 50cl. Tief dunkel, undurchsichtig. Fast schon handfeste Röst- und Schokoladenaromen, kräftig ohne Brenzligkeit. Sorgsame Auswahl der Malze, Hopfen dezent im Hintergrund, hat gegen die Röstaromen sowieso keine Chance. Sehr lecker.

KoNrRiI (1215) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2012
0.5 bottle. Aroma composed mostly of malty scents, roasty and nutty with obvious tones of caramel. Very dark brown, completely impervious liquid and a nice, brownish creamy head. Taste is very nicely balanced, bittersweet resembling soft, warm, dark bread. Medium body, softly carbonated what highlights the fine creamy texture. Finish is medium long and slightly more bitter than the taste, but not to a fault. Overall a nice beer, looking conspicuous with this black and white label but still I’m kind of surprised how good it is mostly due to the Kvickly logo I didn’t expect much of it.
