3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Imbibe. Clear deep brown with a thin head. Aroma of toffee, slight spice, and dried fruits. Taste is very sweet, with toffee, treacle, and burnt sugar. Dry aftertaste with a slight bitterness that creeps up over time. Full-bodied. Bonus points for originality on this one; I can’t recall ever tasting a beer quite like this.
Pours an average amount of frothy head but slowly dissipates. Has a dark coppery appearance. Lacing is ok. Some light toasty and nutty malt aromas. Flavours of roasted malts, toffee and nutmeg. Some spice and resin hops as well. Hints of cinnamon. Quite a mouthwarming sensation. Average carbonation. Not bad. ___Steve___ (71) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Brownish head on top of a ruddy red unfiltered ale. Lots of malty chocolate aronas. Sweet tasting malt finish. Sparing and not overtly strong. KoNrRiI (1554) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2015
0.591 tap. Dark, crimson color and a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of dark malts, caramel, fruits, and brown sugar. Taste of malts, caramel, burnt grains. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is a little alcoholic. Overall the beer is mediocre, too alcoholic. Bamsen78 (5454) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2015

Pretty much all you need to know about this beer is right on the bottle, which I really dig.
First whiff smells amazing: dates, figs, prunes, raisins, and a little bit of spice from the cinnamon. But this beer loses its head faster than (oh hell this is unintentionally topical) Ann Boleyn at....a Thomas Cromwell dinner party? (...good save....)
Anyway it’s off with the head and off with the aroma at the same time, which is kind of a bummer. That being said this beer tastes beautiful, though it is more carbonated than I would’ve expected. Overall it’s still really nice, especially as the weather gets colder.
