Bottle. on ØJ-dag. @ YNWA, KoldingEyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Pours a deep red with lots of bubbles in the liquid. Head is creamy, off white and stays for quite some time. Sweet aroma, light strawberries and a roasted spicyness. Full, lively and still a bit oily mouthfeel. Flavour is dominated by slightly burned caramel, apples, chocolate, strawberries, toffee, cinnamon, coriander and cardemum. The spices never ’take over’, lying perfactly balanced in the back. Lightly dry and spicy sweet aftertaste.
750 ml bottle. Pours brown with some sediment and a durable, tan head. Aroma is crayon-ish and grape with some burnt caramel. Flavor is some chocolate with dried fruits and even more fresh vinous grape. This is as close to a wine as any beer I’ve tasted. I’m sure this beer would be fantastic in 10 years and after just one, although not boozy tasting, I’m getting a buzz from just a few sips.

The beer poured a clear dark chestnut color with a small off-white head. The aroma was fruity and yeasty with a mlaty sweetness. The aroma was full. The flavor was malty and estery with a dry finish. Lightly spiced. Medium bodied. There was a hint of tartness in the flavor. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 13/20
The aroma is sweet and yeasty with some chocolate. The appearance is brown with a large head. The flavor is like the aroma with plenty of alcohol for a 9%. The palate is thin. Overall it’s pretty good but not that impressive. Palidor19 (3188) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Gives a real spicy punch. A true peppery overtones that makes this a great winter warmer. Toffee and caramel like. Enjoy stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours brown wih a red hue and a small beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, spices, and alcohol. The flavor is fruit, bread, caramel, and alchol is present. Good body, good brew.
