UPDATED: MAY 2, 2015 550ml: A nice winter warmer ,considering its early spring .-this should be redundant ,but its cold . Dark malt nose , raisins , coffee,chocolate . Deep brown beer , beige head . Flavours and palates suggesting chocolate notes, dark malt flava , caramel , red wine , raisins ... I bet this would lift from cask in the middle of winter .. From the bottle in May its decent stuff ! fonefan (51109) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2009
