DraftDodger (4140) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2020 Silkeborg 19/7 2020. 65 cl bottle from Kvickly, Østergade, Middelfart. Print on the bottle with bleeding heart pierced by an arrow and a lot of small flying hearts.
Pours dark cola brown with a big, light beige head. Stable. Settles as lumpy, uneven layer of foam unable to cover the surface of the beer. Substantial lacing.
Aroma is intense with a strong sweet, malty odor and a candy-like quality. Roasted. Caramel, hard candy, sugar. Burnt.
Light carbonation. Medium thick, soft, oily, almost flat texture.
Flavor is intense with a strong sweetness followed by a moderate bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet with a sourish undercurrent. Semi-dry roasted finish.
Very intense, sweet and roasted but avoids being cloying. Probably not my first choice for a Valentine’s date, but a fine brew.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2019 Bottle from the brewery - in a parling lot in kingman - amber color, white head. this has all you would want from a red ale. fresh and crisp, medium sweetness, berries and red malts. perfectly put together. so moreish. Cristobal37 (2126) - Tustin, California, USA - APR 3, 2019
UPDATED: APR 3, 2019 Cask at the brewery. Pours cherry brown, good head. Aroma is cherry, woody, caramel. Dry, low co2 cause of the cask. Very malty and caramel, some cherry wood. Would try it bottled cause the lack of co2 is not the best. Really nice, rich amber ale. colui72 (2297) - HONG KONG - MAR 4, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2019 Pours reddish copper, a firm off-white head and great lacing. Aroma of ripe fruits, resin, piney hops and a note of citrus. Tastes quite sweet, brown malts, caramel, ripe dates, raisins, chocolate and a good balance of hops with some bitter and citrus notes. Light body, nice carbonation for a great smooth mouth feel, quite dry finish. Overall a great ale, not usually my style, which I consider often quite dull, but I'm loving this one, a grateful surprise.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2019 Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, light pine for the hops, light dough for the yeast, and faint notes of pineapple and dried fruits in the background. Head is small to average sized, frothy, light beige, with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy rusty - brown. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery, with a lively carbonation and a lightly dry finish. Excellent Amber Ale, with some nice hoppy aspects. ZacM612 (1203) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2018

From a 650ml bottle on 3/6/2018 (shared with Butz). Pours a deep amber with a small head. The aroma is malty, with some caramel and toffee. Quite malty in the mouth - more caramel and toffee, nuts and toast. Features a moderate bitterness with some dark chocolate in the mix. Fullish bodied with moderate carbonation. A very solid and tasty malty brew.
