UPDATED: AUG 23, 2004 Bottled: Black brown coloured. Not much head. Light brown. Spices, alcahol, caramel in the aroma. Flavour is dominated by the alcahol. Malts, fruits, spices and yeast present. Is sharp alcaholic and very warming in the end. Thanks to <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=2 for this. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2004

ohhhhh, yummy....one I definitely look forward to revisiting. Georgeous pour....like motor oil with a tan head, very attractive (more lacing would have really done me in though, thus the 4). Smooth inviting maltiness with a floral bouquet. And my nose did not let me down in the taste....sweet maltiness with a citrusy tartness and the alcohol is amazingly well masked. kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - AUG 16, 2004
I enjoyed this beerr. This beer poors a very dark brown to almost black with an average tan head.(if the head was longer lasting it would have been a five of five) Aroma of dried fuit and malt. Flavor is complex and nice. Sl sweet initial taste with a nicely balanced sl bitter finish. Alcohol is well masked. Overall a nice effort by Unibroe. A repurchase on my list for sure.

Dark body, black in colour, with a slight head making an appearance. Strong malt and caramel aromas, accompanied by some sweet alcohol aromas. Taste is sweet and sour. Some spicy hints with some hoppy bitterness. Floral as well. very complex. No alcohol aftertaste, which is good. WELL DONE!!! Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Pours almost opaque dark brown-black with thin brown head...smells of raisins, plums, prunes, caramel so complex...tastes malty, earthy, citrusy, also so very complex...warm fruity finish...this is delicious... Kevin (2200) - Montana, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Bottle. this raring is from notes that i took at Lumpy’s house. Thanks, Brother. Bottle. POurs a solid black with a thin light brown head. has a yeasty earthy aroma. flavor is bitter and earthy with a dried plum/raisin taste. this has a malt finish of sweet caramel. finish is very warming. the overall taste of this is a warming sweet citrus, this also has a touch of citus as it warms. there are also developing flavors of spice to this. My opinion to people trying this is to give it two chances, one when first opened, another about thirty minutes later. You will experience two different beers this way. They are both good.

Bottle. Flavors of alcohol, rasins, malt, carbonation, currant, and dried cherry abound. Finish is dry with a perfect alcohol warmth. This is good stuff! DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Pours burgundy/dark brown. Fruity, spicy aroma with a taste of fruits, mead, cognac, spice, molasses, and soy. Wonderfully complex. As it warms the alcohol becomes more noticable, but at the same time additional flavors peek out like cherries, nuts, and chocolate. This is a great beer.
