4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, vintage 2006, sampled 2009. A polished chestnut red-brown beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with nuts hitting you at first, then comes notes of malt, caramel, alcohol, and brown sugar. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of caramel, nuts, and brown sugar, with aged vinous notes, probably due to it being 3 years old, and some roasted malt notes. The mouthfeel is very smooth with a medium carbonation, and leading to a dry and slighlty bitter finish, where some roasted notes of caramel and nuts lingers.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottled at Københavnske Øldage] Ruby. Small creamy head. Surprisingly neutral aroma. Sweet with a really solid body. There’s molasses and and intense flavours of roasty malt. When the flavours opens up it reveals cookie malt and licorice. Salty finish. I much prefer the non-imperialized version.
