Not sure how ppl rated this beer so low, I've found that unknown beer in a small grocery store in IL, tried it and it was BOOM !!!

1L of dark Red/Brown, little bit sweet, maybe little chocolate flavor, similar to a German double bock or a Belgium beer but lighter and with less alcohol. Next day I went to that store and bought the rest of that store's stock, game over. he has none, I have all.

Few times I had such a joy of finding a beer that I soooo like, next step is to find the IL importer and give him a call, I wanna have more of the same :-)

Served on draught into a Royal beer stemware glass in a cafe in Copenhagen, Denmark, on July 10th, 2011. Reviewed live.

A: One finger of wonderful lovely soft cream and great thickness. Retention holds up for over ten minutes. I couldn't wait any longer so I started drinking it. Dark ruby colour; semitransparent. Very appealing - particularly the head.

Sm: Chocolate, heavy nutty hops, and cream. Exquisite. A moderate strength scent.

T: Heavy nutty tones alongside cream that slightly drys on the climax. Some amber hops are sprinkled about but don't come through significantly. The climax is where the beer should shine, but it doesn't. Instead the flavours mute and fall apart, leading to a bleeding boring finish. I wish the second half was as interesting as the first. The balance is quite off structurally, and in terms of flavour. It's built pretty well, but it could be a great beer.

Mf: Strange. Smooth in the beginning until it becomes coarse without motivation, rendering the cream stale and the nuts too dry. Again, it suffers here from a disjunction betwixt its first and second halves.

Dr: Low ABV, pretty drinkable, and insanely highly priced - but this is Denmark. Cost was 50 DKK for a pint, which is 7.69 Euro. Considering Mikkeller across town sells much better beer for just a bit less per 20cl, this price point is obscene. I'd have it again if the price were better. It's a damned shame the finish and climax are so shite.

The colour is brown-red; the finger thick airy head slowly sinks down to a thin lid with a fizzing sound, leaving no lacing at all.

The smell is sweet and roasted with caramel/toffee, matured bananas and some clean bitter notes.

The taste is roasted with some passing sweet notes. A mild bitterness emerges together with an odd flavour of boiled vegetables. The aftertaste got some simple bitter notes and hints of cheap chocolate candy.

The carbonation is lager-like and way too strong for brown ale. The liquid is watery.
