Strong coffee aroma. Chocolate, licorice and roasty too. Dark, but clear. Medium sweetness and light bitterness - a great beer by Midtfyns Bryghus. Creamy texture, soft carbonation, and a long finish. I’m happy to try this after it has been stored for a couple of years. Very well tasting!

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 Bottle. Black with beige head. Aroma of dark fruits; raisins and molasses. Belgian yeast also present. Flavour is sweet with dark ripe fruits, candied sugar, some spices just a hint of tobacco. I had remembered more tobacco, but this is not a fresh sample. Still a very decent beer,

500ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Smooth sweet bready main aroma, alas there’s some glue, a little bit acetoney. Later there’s some almond too. Alas the hints of glue never subside completely. Looks gorgeous in the whisky tulip, lovely tight beige head, huge and persistent, over a thick, almost viscous, dark dak brown body. Luscious in the mouth, smooth and silky. perhaps a bit sweet, and almost sickly in places (acetone talking ?). Finish has the roast, rich and toasty, gently spiced. Do I get a clove numbness? Lovely to sip, great last beer of the evening. Doesn’t pip Beer Here Nordic Rye for top beer of the day, but this is certainly the best last beer of the lot. We took nearly 50min to sip this, and liked every sip.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a dark and cloudy brown with a big creamy khaki head. Decent lacing. Sour and sweet, liquorice and cloves aroma. Bit of chocolate in the background. Cloying. Flavour is tart, fat and sweet with sweet liquorice and cloves here as well. Still cloying. Malty finish with an alcoholic burn. Lingering liquorice and apple notes with a tartness. Dont’ really know what to make of this; it’s not a bad beer per se, but it’s a wee bit unbalanced, and too cloying for my liking; I’m not really into cloves. 16.06.12.
