Boks 0,5l fra Eurospar Kræmer i Tromsø. Ekstremt dyprød. Nesten svart. Brukbart skum som datt nesten helt sammen. Bra aroma med litt lakris & litt kaffe. Smaken preget av en litt tørr røstethet. En svakt syrlig bitterhet kommer sigende og avslutter litt tørt. Av de bedre jeg har smakt fra Aas.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It got a dark brown colour, with a thin, off-white head.
Aroma; Heavy on the malt, but it´s good; chocolate, roasted notes. A good fruity aroma aswell.
Flavour; Follows the nose, with chocolate, roast, and dark fruit flavour. It´s a good carbonation, even if I like the stouts alittle more creamy. The body is decent for a 4,7% beer.
Summary; A good beer in only 4,7%, maybe one of the best you can get in the supermarket in this style.
PS; Bottle is better than the can!

Overall an ok stout, but expected more given the ’gourmet’ name

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2010 Pours a regular black stout body with a quickly disappearing white top. Smell is raspberries and grassy hops with hints of coffee. Taste is very similar: cherries, coffee and hints of oak. Rather fruity for a stout, but pleasant enough. A bit watery, but that’s hard to get around for such a low ABV stout. Drinkable and decent.

500 ml can from Norwegian super market. Very dark, with ruby-brown edges and a pinky’s width of head. Nose is sweet with a fair amount of chocolate. Aroma is suprisingly nice; leather, chocolate and liquorice. Nutty edge. Wow. I’ve tried this beer before, but obviously didn’t pay much attention to it then becuase I can’t remember it being this interesting. For a Norwegian super market beer, this is quite nice! Especially considering that I expected it to taste and look like muddy water. Only thing I don’t like is a slight sour metallic edge to the aroma, and a bit to much carbonation for my taste. And I wish it was a bit thicker. Apart from that I’m impressed. The closest thing to a craft beer I’ve found in a regular super market here.
It’s like Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast’s younger and smaller sister’s aunt’s neighbour’s slightly anorexic, slutty daughter. Quite far from the real thing, and a bit too thin for my taste, but still I’d hit it!
