COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Den gamle brygmester har brugt en ældre metode med opvarmede lavasten til sin sidste overgærede øl. Stenene sænkes ned i urt, og der dannes et karamellag omkring stenene, som så anbringes i lagertanken. Karamellen frigøres til øllet under den lange kolde eftergæring, og metoden giver, sammen med en eksplosion af humlenuancer, en ganske særlig aromatisk karakteristika til øllet.

tfredvik (941) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2011
Black it is! Upon the black body rests a small, light brown head, at least for a couple of minutes. The remnants that are left at the rim lace the glass pretty well. Burnt notes in the aroma, along with coffee, caramel and a pronounced and delightful element of elderberries. Initial light sweetness and light bitterness, with a long-lasting medium bitter finish. Flavours are mainly brown sugar, elderberries and coffee, while the burnt aroma gives rise to a lighter roasted flavour. Medium body, oily texture, very soft carbonation.
[33 cl bottle, from SuperBrugsen Søholm, Brønshøj, Copenhagen]

Shakesbeere (212) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2011
50cL bottle. Pours a dark brown caramel with a tan head. Aroma is hoppy with hints of roasted chocolate. Taste has a significant hop background with hints of caramelized malts and roasted chocolate in the foreground. Finish is roasted and hoppy. The bitter background reminds me of a pale ale or IPA. A good beer, but not mind-blowing.
