3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske: Ravfarvet øl med kæmpe skumhoved, Maltet duft og tung maltet smag med en god del alkohol, som dog alligevel ikke er ubehagelig. Bestemt ikke min ynglings øltype, men solidt lavet af et godt bryggeri.

A clear amber/copper colored beer, with a thick light beige head. The aroma of caramel malt, fruits like citrus and sweets. The taste of caramel toffee, sweet fruits and straw. It’s a little bitter. The aftertaste is dry, sweet with some bitter.

500 ml bottle. Clear copper color, virtually no head. Somewhat sweet, fruity flavor with notes of hops, sawdust and tea. Medium-full body, low carbonation. Not my favorite.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. My first shot at this brewery, I think -- exciting!
Hazy copper, with a light beige head with rather short retension.
Sweetish, fruity, slightly alcoholic aroma, with a whisper of hops, molasses, and something vaguely nutty.
Alcohol rather prominent in flavor, albeit in a fairly sweet, fruity kind of way. Caramel malts, some bitter hops, and perhaps a hint of dark cherries. Alcohol and hops linger in bitter aftertaste. Somehow, though, it leaves me wishing for more. The fruitiness never quite reaches particularly enjoyable levels, and is, in the end, overshadowed by the alcohol.
Medium body, moderate carbonation, clean palate.
Bit of a disappointment, frankly.
