[On tap at Carlsens with Bo.] Not that bad and quite refreshing although its 7 %. Good malt dose and some dusty flavor added with weak fruits, caramel and low carbonation. Ok brew from Assens!

Rune (7777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2010
Draught, house Christmas beer, 6.8% ABV, at Carlsens Kvarter where it really was chilled down a bit too far. Clear and deep mahogany coloured body. Bare naked surface, fragile lacing. Plain dark malty smell. Dark caramel malts along with a modest touch of candy sweetness. Typical for the style and partly enjoyable (Odense, 10.11.2010).

yespr (30755) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 30, 2008
Handbottle thanks to faeroeviking/Christian. Pours slight murky brown (my pour did) with a mild redish glare. Almost no head. Sweet aroma, slight unfinished molasses and some strange earthy note. Flavour follows this closely with mild fruity notes but it is sticking sweet and some strange earthy flavour in addition. Sweet finish.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2008
(Hand bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of faroeviking/ChristianScheffel. Pours a dark brown with a tint of red. Tiny, tiny off-white head - probably due to the low carbonation from the handbottling. Aroma of sweet, roasted malt - but unfortunately also a fusty touch. Medium body with sweet, roasted malts and some notes of brown sugar. And again an earthy, moldy feel. The finish is mainly sweet, with only a vague hint of hops. Afraid this wasn’t completely clean. 301107

Christian (11027) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2007
Dark brown with a lasting off-white head. Caramel, brown sugar and molasses dominate the aroma. Very sweet malty flavour with some molasses.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 20, 2007
Hand bottled. Thanks Christian. Clear deep dark brown colour. Quite sweet malty aroma with dark fruits. The flavour is also quite sweet with caramel, roasted malt and dark fruits. Sweet roasty finish. Too sweet for my taste buds.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2007
Tap @ Carlsens. Pours a very deep mahogany with a very nice and good-looking creamy off white head. It even has good retention! Sweet aroma with caramel and a weak dose of dried fruits. Okay mouthfeel. Initial impression of flavours is metallic, lots of it. But as the beer warms up, it gets better. Lightly sweet and a bit sugary cloying with caramel and a light roast peeping through. Very pretty beer, but that metallic edge should have been prevented.
