3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ home. Profumo di cearali tostati, e di caffè. Schiuma color caffelatte e birra dal colore rosso pieno, quasi violaceo. La caronatazione è medio bassa, il gusto è amaricato in stile Bitter inglese, molto caratteristico, e tornano sentori di caffè e cioccolato. la descivono come fruttato, ma io non ho avvertito granchè quesi sentori. é decisamente più bitter che altro. corpo quasi pieno, discretamente pastoso

Dark ruby brown. Not getting anything from the aroma. Sweet at first then very dry and slightly bitter. Finish has more sweetness to it. Satisfying pub beer but not much else.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copenhagen 10/5 2016. 50 cl bottle from Føtex. Little (hob-)goblin sporting an axe on the label. Pours clear reddish brown with off-white head. Settles as paper thin patches of foam. Very moderate lacing. Aroma of caramel and honey which have been kept in the jar for too long. Soft carbonation and watery palate. Taste is nicely balanced between caramel sweetness and distinct bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter and finish is semidry. Fine little goblin.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bb03/2017 (BL2). Clear ruby-copper, off-white thick soapy head. Smells of caramelised beets, old rose petals in their broth, vegetable soup. Flavour splits down the middle of those aromas: sweetish caramels with a metallic vegetal hint and a green-vegetal hop bitterness, then thin chocolate powder (Nesquick in water instead of milk), slowly gaining character near the coda, gaining earthy accents of tobacco, dry maple syrup, forest mulch. Corn sweet and slick in mouthfeel, retronasal banana.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served in a snifter. Pours clean deep ruby-brown with a dissipating head. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice and some bread. The taste is a lovely combination of roasted malts, licorice, a hint of chocolate. Nicely balanced beer with a short slightly bitter finish. Medium smooth body with medium carbonation. Will have it again and again and again!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I expected more from this beer and was disappointed as I am an ale lover. Middle of the road at a premium price.
