3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned, aged 3.3 yrs, 500 ml. The beer matures to a dark amber with lasting white head, a pleasant pop when opening the bottle. Smooth, strong beer with heavy yeast nose. Clear and warming with vanilla undertones and a port, sherry body. the hops have lost their edge, blending in to the body. But all is not perfect! What is this fishy, cod liver oil note i get left with? never expected that. Overall a very good beer though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ Irma, Industriens Hus, Cph.
Pours hazy golden amber with a fine, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of malts, some toffee and good flowery hops. Medium carbonation, fine, lightly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is wonderful. Lots of toffee, a bit of burnt caramel, good, dryish flowery bitterness. A touch of metal perhaps, but the beer is maybe just served a tad too cold. Long, lingering aftertaste with a heacy hops presence. This is really enjoyable.
