2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
I would call this a dessert beer. Dark brown, nice head. Sugary sweet with dried fruit, especially raisins. Some licorice. Tastes like mincemeat pie in a bottle. Not for everyone, and not for me.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
It’s almost black and the head is huge. The aroma is sweetish with notes of fruit and cinnamon. The flavour is very sweet in a candy sugar way followed by notes of fruit and cinnamon. The finish has a harsh note of lemon peel, that grows stronger and stronger. I’m not fond of this one, IMO it’s out of balance.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2007 Brun řl fĺet pĺ arbejdet og derhjemme.
Řllen er for sřd - ellers en varm klosterbry. Let kryderet. Dette er nćrmest en juleřl.
Mange nuancer i smagen og i duften.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a clear, dark, reddish brown with a creamy, beige head. Very spicy aroma - almost like Undrrberg or Fernet Branca. Full-bodied with very sweet notes of brown sugar and roasted malt. Some licorice and then again these very spicy accents that I rather associate with a digestive alcohol. Dry, lightly bitter and rather alcoholic finish. 240906
