375ml cork and caged bottle shared by Dean. Poured a murky muddy brown with a brown small foamy head. Aroma of milk, peppers, bad stale green peppers, soap, old toast. The body was foamy with loads of carbonation, a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is not much better than the aroma, notes of bad chocolate, old green peppers and bad bread. Not sure if I drank the same beer as all the other raters (I know I did it was a corked bottle) wish mine tasted/rated like everyone else’s. SlackerMads (3467) - DENMARK - JUL 28, 2013

Bottle 37,5 cl, best after 21.12.2012. Pours dark brown in color with a creamy tan head. Dark fruits as
in raisins, bit of yeasty notes, old cellar notes too in aroma. Sweet dark raisins fruityness in taste,
some chocolate, a bit of biting hot and light spicyness as in cinnamon in flavor. Soft and moussy
mouthfeel. Excellent as a dessert beer together with some ice cream. Aftertaste has even that nice vinous
vibe in it. Cuso (8933) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 18, 2013

37,5 cl bottle @ home, BA 21.12.2012
Aroma is sweet with alcohol, berries, caramel and some spices. Flavour is quite messy with stinging alcohol, berries, some spices. Foamy palate is too high on CO2. Messy and boozy like some quads from Danish breweries. Somehow the feeling of alcohol fits here though. A slow sipper in LA style, worse than the others though.
