Pours a nice, lightly hazy ruby-red with a staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has caramel, yeast, toffee, light cellar and chocolate. Highish carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 Cloudy brown beer, light brown head that quickly disappears. Sweet malty aroma. Quite bitter, almost stoutlike.

An unclear brown beer with a fine orange collapsing head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of spices; coriander and cinnamon. The flavor is just like the aroma combined with some sourness. Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - APR 25, 2004
