Gehbe (432) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JAN 20, 2017
Somewhat cloudy ruby brown with a small shortlived beige head. Aroma of cookies, resin, cooked bread, bread crust, light notes of darker malts, hints of spice and herbs. Nice crispy dry bitter taste and finish. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation, no excess alcoholic heat. Very drinkable!

DraftDodger (1413) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2016
Copenhagen 5/3 2016. 33 cl bottle from Gunnar Madsen Vinhandel. After Christmas Sale. Strange drawing of Disney like duck beak with Christmas Hat on the label. Pours dark reddish brown with big off-white head. Settles as 1 cm thick creamy layer of foam with heavy lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is sweet. Brown sugar, licorice, roasted malts, fruity sourness and notes of booziness. Soft carbonation and thick oily palate. Flavor is quite intense with a heavy, thick sweetness. A bitter sourness in the aftertaste. I drank it to my lunch which consisted of greasy pizza slices. But the ugly Christmas brew torpedoed the grease with a sweet sour intensity - and a little Christmas atmosphere even though the calendar shows beginning of March.
