Dark amber. Small, short head.
Some chocolate and toffee in the aroma.
Also present in flavour with licorice added. Not bad. Ungstrup (37283) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2006
A deep red beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, but also a slightly dusty hoppy note. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and ryebread, as well as light notes of licorice. The end is dry. joergen (27982) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2006

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Canned 0,50L. Creamy and adherent brownish head, good persistence. Dark scorched red color; lightly hazy and much fizzy one. Roasted flavor, lightly metallic. Decidedly bitter scent with notes of toasted malt and caramel. Prickly and round taste, good alcoholic tenor. Discreet end with a bitter and sweetish mixture rumors. Barrabass (31) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2005
Dark brown colour with som red. Thick lacing head. Hopsy nose and a touch of plums. Taste hopsy with a malty finish. Good for chrismas, drinkable once a year. johndoughty (5398) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2005
Darkish red and poured with a big head
which soon dissapeared. Slightly malty
and quite well balanced.Not exceptional but better than I had expected. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2005
Canned. Dark ruby red colour with beige mediumsized head, which disappears quite fast. Aroma is like sweaty socks at first, but after the beer has settled for a short while you can tell sweet malts with some spicy and roasted hints. Flavour is strong hops, but at the same time plummy and some roasted malts. Aftertaste mainly hoppy, with also some weak roasted malts. Positive surprise from Spendrups!

Can (BB 04/2006)
Ruby red, small tan head. Roasted, spicey, pleasant aroma. Malty, roasted flavor, long roasted, a bit hoppy aftertaste. Balanced roasted malts, complex enough and certainly one of the better Spendrups brews.
