Session weight, generally smooth drinking. Good malting. I really enjoyed the aroma - some hints of vanilla over peat, lots of yeastiness. Moderate to slightly heavy bittering, roasty. Good bottle and label, dark woody beer with a nice thin ale head. Finishes with some assertiveness in the acidity department. The two prominent flaws that the beer had was its trailing acidity and the thinnish mouth, but I certainly wouldn’t turn down another.

Malty aroma, maybe roasted. Taste is similar, maybe a watered down wildcat with a hint of heather. bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - DEC 7, 2005
some friends brought this over from scotland for me. poured deep brown with a tan-mushroom head. malty wet nose with roasted nut essence. mouth continues the same malted toffee flavors not particulary sweet but non impressive on the palate. needs more substance and less water. scotty (1223) - SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2005
Good lookin’ beer, good tight white head, leaves a nice lace down the glass. Soft sweet malty nose with a hint of hops..nice! Quite thin on the palate, initially good malt but that fades very quickly and leaves little in the way of a finish. Geuzelambix (376) - København, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2005
A beer with a nice dark colour and good looking foam. I was not too carzy about the taste of it though. It seemed to lack a little in the finnish and it did not have the full body that one could hope to find in a good ale. While it was not a bad beer I would prefer to drink the porter from the same brewery.

Hazy amber colour with a big baige head. Sweet fruity malty aroma and taste. dry. Light body and a light dry finish. Ungstrup (38381) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2005
A hazy amber beer with a small collapsing beige head. The aroma is sour and fruity. The flavor is malty with notes of roasted bread and overripe fruit, leading to a dry end. But the body is thin. jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2005
Amber color with a off white head. The taste is a sweet dry sourness with a ugly and rather boring palate. ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2005
Dark amber with small off white head. Malty and sweet aroma. Flavor is malty with some caramel sweetness and a slightly bitter finish. JoeMcPhee (9547) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2004
500 ml bottle. Dark amber colour with a thin tan head. Very malty aroma of caramel, vanilla, and brown sugar. Flavour is also very good, malty, brown sugar, UK hop spiciness and a nicely bitter finish to round it off.
