4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A rich Aroma of chocolate, caramel, and malt. Pours a rich brown color. This was a lightly sweet, creamy, milky, chocolate, caramel, malty, vanilla, gingerbread, and shortbread cookies all rolled into one. It has a clean rich finish, with a nice full body on your tongue. This was an exceptional beer to drink.

I thought this was a solid Scottish ale. Not much nose.. Hints of smoke and peat. Flavors are all malts with a bit of a watery finish. Nice chewy mouthfeel with dark fruit and peat.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Appearance is a very dark copper color, almost brown, with a big, fluffy tan head. Aroma is lots of sweet malts and a hint of chocolate. Taste pretty well follows the nose. It’s a tad more watery than I expected, but still good. I like it.

Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends in Copenhagen. Very malty and sweet with caramel, candy, caramelized sugar and some dried fruit. It reminds me a bit about GD Hibernation. Yet another great beer from FFF.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’ve had this brew many times. Finally getting around to a review. Thanks to Dave for bringing a bottle over. The beer is dark amber with burgundy highlights. Aromas of toffee, brown sugar, yeast. Brown breads and malt with yeast and a touch of hops in the finish. Alcohol presence is moderate. Medium carbonation with a growing sweetness. This is alright.
