Fudgy and slight taste and aroma of alcohol. Sweet. This is a really good Norwegian brewery playing with Nordic mythology both in the naming of the brewery and the naming of different beers. This style is a bit difficult for me but I appreciate a quality brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, thnx to Cunningham. Pours a hazy brown beer with a small beige, creamy head on top. Aroma is very malty, loads of caramel, sugar, nutty and sweet yeast. Flavor is very sweet again, loads of caramel again and has this light sticky mouthfeel. No real boozyness detected, but the alcohol is noticeable. Quite sweet aftertaste. Very nice beer, could use some more complexity to be honest. Nice one.

Roasted malts smoothly down throttle.
Syrup prunes smoke.

Sour fruit malts linger out the wattle.
