I had this beer at a bevmo tasting in Laguna Niguel, California. I think that the pink elephants on the bottle are cool I thought it was a smooth and fruity beer and enjoyed it.

Whole Foods Bottle 2006. Pours a caramel color thats a bit hazy. has an off-white head, lasted for a while. not an extremely aromatic beer, but has a fruity scent with mostly apple and a bit of cinnamon. has a strong alcohol finish with a skightly sour after taste. definately worth a try.

2003 75cl bottle. This amber ale poured with a decent off-white head, eliciting a strong fruity aroma. The flavor, too, is fruity with a caramel malt base and some spicy enhancements. There is an astringent alcohol finish.

Quite light color. Alcohol, caramel and spicyness are the main elements, but the alcohol is far too obvious. Could benefit from prolonged storage?

A real nice beer! Nicely fruity, with an alcoholic and spicy component. Like brandy-soaked fruitcake, glazed with molasses and caramel syrup. Probably better than that actually, as Ive never had a fruitcake I liked, but i did like this beer. Easy semi-sweet finish.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2006
Bottled. Amber coloured with a rather large head. Sweet and alcoholic. A bit sharp with notes of caramel, fruits and spices.
