3.62/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

From a 330 ml brown bottle, one of 5 from a variety pack. Pours out a hazed amber hue, tall spongy off-white head with excellent retention.

Aroma has sweet and toasted notes, fruity esters, some raisin. Bready and caramel notes in there as well. It's pretty complex.

Bready, toasty, caramel malt up front in the flavour, dries out in the middle with some alcohol, with more alcohol, dry grains and sticky dark dried fruit on the finish.

Medium-bodied, somewhat smooth texture, medium carbonation.

Enjoyable for the most part but seems a bit hit and miss at times. I like where the complexity is going, it just needs to be bumped up some more to follow through with where all that goodness seems to be going.

The bottle has such stylized text that it's difficult to discern the actual name without a basic knowledge of Danish...

This beer pours a hazy, sediment-strewn orange-tinted dark brown hue, with two fingers of creamy, foamy off-white head, which has very good retention, eventually leaving a Swiss-cheese mosaic of lace around the glass. It smells of sweet, nutty, biscuity caramel malt, and soft earthy, floral hops. The taste is big bready, biscuity malt, a bit of bitter citrus pith, and floral, somewhat musty hops. The carbonation is on the soft side, the body a solid medium weight, and decently creamy. It finishes still fairly sweet, some sourbread malt persisting, along with a slight earthy dryness.

A nice dopplebock, the booze is not even perceptible as a warming. Different enough in the baked-goods sense to see the difference imprinted by Danish style.

Of the six beers in the mixed pack this was the best . Big malty mouthfeel , lots of complexity and a long finish. A bottom fermenting bock

Buur Beer is historically known for its strength and its well hidden 6.4% alc. in this revived version of an old randrusiansk classic, one can easily understand how the beer through the ages has surprised many of its nydere. A bright and golden bottom fermented bock, with a spicy and rich caramel flavor that lends itself well to the traditional Danish food.

Nice beer that suits the winter season
