Danish: Carlsberg Elephant er en såkaldt ”Bockbier” og blev brygget for første gang i 1959. Den er vinøs og frugtig med smagsindtryk af æbler, melon, banan og karamel afbalanceret af en tør bitterhed. Du fornemmer også antydninger af egetræ, bark, nødder og fyrrenåle. Farven er lys gylden med hvidt skum.

English: Carlsberg Elephant Beer is an amber-coloured beer with big intensity in its aroma, and with a distinct maltyness. There is notes of honey in the aroma. The palate of Carlsberg Elephant shows a good balance between a good body from the alcohol, and a discrete sweetness which is tamed by the sophisticated bitterness of the aftertaste.

Pours clear copper with a thick, though not long-lasting, cream head. Aroma presents crisp malt and - ewww, wet dog. Flavor yields fresh malt and a little sweet pomme - the wet dog is gone, but it is a bit skunky - plus an undertone of bitter hops. Mouthfeel features so-so body and fizz. Well, I had to try it.

Et ganske godt øl, passer til det meste av mat. Også behagelig som tørstedrikk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I really enjoy this, and don’t know why it has such poor reviews. For the ABV, this is a fantastic pour. Smooth and sweet, with an amaretto note, and a mild-strong alcohol finish. Much better than other high proof beers I have tried

Single 330 ml bottle from Tipsy's Liquor World. Clear yellow to orange colored appearance with a lingering white head. Aroma of toasted grain, a mild earthiness and light hoppy notes. Similar flavor, adding mild to moderate malt sweetness and a touch of bitterness. Medium body with a hint of fruitiness in the finish. Possibly dated (no freshness date), but still decent and drinkable overall.

at a tasting, thanks, smallish fizzy head, clear dark yellow color, light malty and as touch stale aroma, sweet skunky nutty flavor. Waste of alcohol, avoidable.

From a 12 oz bottle. Pours light translucent gold amber with minimal carbonation. Sweet fruity aroma with a tad of skunk. Sweet bitter taste that lingers. Similar to a weak Heineken with linger. Very interesting.

Malty, a bit sweet beer, strong. It's easy to drink, the taste is interesting a smell is quite good.

Bitterbill (2078) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 8, 2017
From Apr 2008 This one pours a pale gold with a large but quickly shrinking head of foam. Very bubbly looking. The smell is of sweet malt and grain. The taste is very sweet with a lot of grain going with it and, the way this one goes, it doesn't even come close to tasting good. There's some bitterness there as well mostly in the finish but... Wow. This is a very rough brew and I'm going to find it hard to finish the bottle and not *just* because of the abv. This is a ghastly beer. Ok, I can't take it any more....down the drain.
