Our Glass from the bottle at By the Bottle in Vancouver, WA--Poured a deep chestnut amber body with a medium whitish head. Nutty, sweet, hoppy, citrus nose. Malty, chalky, mildly tangy fruity flavors. Fullbodied and earthy in the finish. Very nice beer!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at John Bull, Aalborg. It pours a clear, dark amber body and a small, dense, off-white to beige head. The aroma is weak and caramel scented, with some roasted, coffee aromas. Full body, slightly over-carbonated. Medium dry. The flavor has coffee, dark chocolate, some dried fruits and a bitter touch. Bitter finish. Pleasant, tasteful and interesting. Would like to have more of this one. 101204

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle poured a reddish-brown color with a small off-white head and some fine lacing. Aroma is mostly toasted malts. Taste is a pleasant malty sweetness with a mild hoppy bitter finish. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated. This is a nice representation of the style and was an enjoyable tasting experience.

500 ml bottle. A malty beer. Some fruit notes, caramel. The body is thick and sweet. This beer did not hold my interest.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Deep amber colour, slight burgundy hue. Nice lacy white that clung to the glass to the finish. Big malty aroma, sweet malty taste with good bitter depth and structure. Sharp on the palate and refreshing for such a strong ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice dark brown with no head. Flavor is hoppy and tangy and is not well balanced. The maltiness in the aroma does not come through in the flavor. Low carbonation. I did have to give extra points for the great label.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Translucent or clearish amber wiht a thin white head, medium bubbles. The nose has some hints of bitter and alcohol and wheat hops whatever in the nose. THe taste is strong bitter right off. Later bitter as well. It just hangs out in there. Not that bad but just a tad bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, labeled as "Our Glass", shared with blankboy and Hogtown Harry, courtesy of Harry. Musty tea, cinnamon, herbal, rootbeer and malt aroma. Dark brown/orange, very still and flat looking. Very sweet musty malt taste. Tea like. A little thin. A grower, it became a little more like a weak Scotch Ale. Some bitterness and alcohol, but not a ton. Ok, didn’t like it as much as my drinking companions.
