500 ml clear bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgård. ABV is 6.5%. Drunk a bit too cold. Ruby colour, moderate off-white head. Nice malty aroma, notes of caramel and treacle, a hint of oak and mild spices. Malty and sweet flavour, low bitterness. Strong notes of caramel and treacle. Quite nice beer, if you want to satisfy your sweet tooth.

This was poured into a thistle glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy dark amber to brown color with a slim finger’s worth of foamy white head. Light lacing sticks and then slides. The smell had a nice blend of sweet and roasty English malts with a decent subdued caramel malts. A light meaty to somewhat peaty sweetness invades nicely. The taste was mainly the same - sweet meaty to peaty awesomeness rolling over my tongue in the flavor department. There’s a light sweet meaty aftertaste leading to a sweet wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and decent for the style. Actually, a super nice sweet smoothness rolls over my tongue. Overall, this is good as a Wee Heavy/Scotch Ale. I dig this. I’d have it again.
