Svesse (8599) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2012
(Draught at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen, 18 Feb 2012) Dark reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with caramel, dark fruit and dark cherries. Malty taste with notes of caramel, dark bread, dried fruit, red berries and spicy hops in the finish. Medium body, with a slight malt sweetness. Very well balanced and quite tasty. Nice one. (A bit confusing this, since no one seem to have had it for almost three years. Or could this have been the Julebryg with a different label? If someone knows more, please let me know.)

Caramel malt and the ususal Svaneke sweetness. Fruit notes and OK bitterness BeerBiker (1415) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2007
[Sampled in 2005.] For sure this is a Svaneke, no doubt. The yest tells it. This is different. Is has some porter-taste, which must be the remarkable note for this brew! yespr (45447) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2007
50 cL bottle, tasted both in 2005 and again 2007 (rather a bit past BBD). Pours unclear brown/amber with a small off-white head. Caramel and slight roasted aroma. Sweet flavour of caramel and roasted malt. Clear Svaneke yeast flavour, which seems rather gone in the other and new brews from Svaneke. Good bitterness in the finish. Reminds me a bit of Stormands øl. fonefan (49305) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2006
Bottle. Muddy ugly brown color with big head. Very malty and with some roast caramel. Some bitterness.

(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear orangey brown with a small, off-white head. Lighly roasted malt aroma. Rather full body with accents of roasted malt and chocolate - actually a LOT of chocolate as it warms. Some honey accents also and a rather solid bitterness in the finish.Typical somewhat rustic Svaneke character, and not a very clean brew at all, but this really grows on me. 280606 Haack (101) - Hornslet, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2006
Brown colour and the head was impressive. Nice malty and yeasty aroma with the characteristic Svaneke yeast that I really like. This is (obviously) darker than Svanekes other beers but it is not one of their finest. It had a bit of liquirice taste. thewolf (12595) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2006
Muddy brown colour with thin, staying head. Aroma of malts and a bit of liquirice. It is okay in fullness with a slight sweetness and oily feel. A bit of orange, caramel. Not bitter at all... onystrom (1333) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2006

Bottle. Rocky white excellent mostly lasting head. muddy brown colour. Heavy malty aroma and flavor. Oily palate. Strange ok beer but not my style.
