2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Reddish amber brown, much stronger caramel/toffee aroma than the amber lager. The taste is a too sweet burnt caramel candy taste. Cloying & artificial seeming. It is like a turbo charged version of their amber but unfortunately not in a good way.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Vesterbro Bryghus, Copenhagen. Pours red-brown with a fine, filmy cream head. Nose holds some caramel, sweet berries, dark sugars. Medium sweet flavor with a kind of nice, ripe berry character; it’s not the dusty malt-cocoa brown ale to which I am accustomed. A bit of caramel sweetness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Actually dries out a touch to finish, with more toasty malts, ripe semi-dark fruits, light dry caramel. Very, very one-dimensional, but nice enough. It does have the faintest hints of cocoa.
