Bottle (75cl) from Gammel Strand Øl og Vin, Copenhagen (purchased Sept 2013). Deep red/copper colour, clear. Small offwhite head, settling as a thick ring and a thin film. Complex aroma: Sweet, malty, spicy, boozy with caramel, cake, whisky/rum, pineapple, almonds, over-ripe fruit. Full body, soft carbonation. Taste is caramel-sweet, malty and deeply fruity with a pleasant ’dusty cellar’ character. Mild, but growing, bitterness. Licorice-dominated finish with a hint of menthol.
