0,75 l. bottle from the supermarket labeled as Jacobsen Abbey Ale but the beer is the same. Poured in to a trappist glass. Dark red-brown colour. Initially huge, but quickly diminishing head. Vineous aroma with chocolate and marcipan. Chocolate and caramel in a vineous taste with hints of banana. Same goes wwith the finish. Medium- to fullbodied, alcohol stays hidden. A decent beer for a bargain. Brandman (2942) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 1, 2011
Mahogany body, white head. Aroma of yeasty fruits. Lots of raisins. Some chocolate in background. Poor version of dubbel. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2011
660 ml bottle. BB 11.01.2011. From København, Denmark.phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - FEB 6, 2011
Clear mahogany colour with small off-white head.
Slightly artifical aroma of caramel, toffee, chocolate and sweet fruits.
Flavour is unfortunately letting us down. This could be christmas edition of Carlsberg Lager. Sugar sweetness, some Dunkel notes but unfortunately that’s it. Some alcohol sweetness but otherwise alcohol is quite well hidden. But much else on the positive side.
Pours chestnut brown with a nice light brown head. Nose has a flowery yeast standing out up front with a clear belgian impression., candy, brown sugar, malts are sweet and a bit nutty, sweet berries too. Taste is less on the yeast, malts are more clear with caramel and nuts, yeast is very light and adds a nice touch, works very well. I thought less of this beer before I had it, and was pleasantly surprised. Kriegbaum (845) - Randers, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2011
Flaske 66 cl. Amber eller rav farvet hælde med et lille off white hoved. Aromaen
og smagen er sød i retning af kandis. Noter af frugt og krydderi afløses af en afbalanceret restbitterhed.
