thewolf (12303) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a deep redish brown with a great almost white medium creamy head. Aroma is mild with caramel dominating, but a little underwhelming. Very nice creamy smoth mouthfeel. Flavour is nice with a good degree of toffee, caramel and a little peity oakiness. Lovely balance.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 3, 2007
Very dark amber, clear and a nice and creamy head. The aroma is malty and the flavour is sweetish, malty with burnt notes of caramel, light fruit and a moderate bitterness, that develops further in the finish in a citrussy way. 1814
