thewolf (11827) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 21, 2016
Bottle, bought@LIVA, Kolding. Pours clear deep chestnut with a medium, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has nice sweet malts, caramel, floral hops, light apple. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, caramel, a bit of licorice, herbal and floral hops. A bit too sweet for its own good, but nicely warming in the end.

Served in a snifter from a bottle. Clear dark amber colour with medium head. Aroma of caramel, dark malts, dry fruits, butterscotch and bread. Taste is nicely balanced, bitter-sweet, with malty, caramel and nutty notes. Alcohol is virtually unnoticeable. Long, pleasant, slightly dry finish. Great stuff!!!

Night_Cap (50) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2016 Bottle 500ml. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a clear copper with a foamy, off-white head that is mostly lasting. Aroma is sweet and malty with earthy hops, toffee, vanilla bean, brown sugar, muscatels and marmalade . Flavour is very smooth and sweet with a light earthy hop bitterness, chestnuts, caramel, biscuits, brown sugar, dried currants and dried peaches. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, a chewy texture and a good length finish. Well hidden alcohol content. Finishes a little ’thin’ but tasty all the same.
