3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Draught Reddish deep-amber beer, shortlived yellow head. Sweet, alcoholic, figs, sultana’s and honey. Terribly sweet nose. Bitterness overlying the near-syrupy taste/feel. Hoppiness is crude, however, nearly metallic. Just too sweet, and IMO nowhere 10.5%.

Ap: slightly hazy copper/ruby colour, weak bubbly beige head.
T: heavy sweetness, very low bitterness, ABV well integrated, slightly vinous, but that’s about it no real complexity to the taste, sort of one-dimensional.

Bottle, september 20th 2015. Dark brown body with a small offwhite head. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, red fruits. Taste of toffee, tangerine, perfume and oak. Booxy finish with a warm cara finish. Too alcohol driven taste for me.

Aroma is malted barley, caramel and some alcohol. The taste is not that good. Too sweet, a lot of alcohol and some odd spicy bitterness to it. During the finish you can taste the alcohol too much. Not great.

Bottle, labelled "best before judgement day". Sweet, alcoholic piss/puke aroma; watery flavour which is quite impressive for a 10+% beer.

Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2009, Valby. Pours an amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is sweet with slight notes of sourness. The flavor is sweetness and fruit. The palate is sweet. Overall the beer needs some balance.
