COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Den 8. juni 793 markerte starten på vikingtida då klosteret på øya Lindisfarne vart åtaka. Sidan vi er glade i både vikingar og øl vart me inspirert til å kalle vår Scotch Ale etter øya. Ølet er fyldig med eit lett røykpreg som kjem frå Peated Malt. Prøv ølet til kjøttrettar og spesielt røykt spekemat.

Bought at Vinmonopolet Tromsø Sentrum. Dark amber body with an off white creamy head. Nice roasty aroma mixed with dried fruit and light smoke. Associations to beef jerkey, oak and brown sugar. Touch of licorice in the finish. Very interesting beer, this one! Much enjoyed.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2014
Tap at the brewery, Flåm, 25/10/14. Narrow-haloed copper glinting with ruby. Big dark berry, wax and peat aroma leaning towards Germany. Doppelbock-like beast with deep nectarine, plum, Everton mint and humbug suggestions. Pretty solid: another generic Ægir 14.

Bosbouw (1389) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2014
Roodbruine, chocolade kleur met een matige kraag. Ruikt zoetig, caramel, herfstfruit, vanille en crème. Smaakt bitterzoet, vanille en crème. Iets alcohol in de afdronk. Iets bittere afdronk. Beetje barley wine achtig.

MichaelAwesome (4587) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2014
Vernuenftig, jedoch nicht herausragend mit ordentlich vielen Erdtoenen und ein paar Blaettern. Dazu etwas Schokolade und Malz. Ganz ok.

McTapps (4589) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle from trade with Cunningham - many thanks Henrik! The beer pours out in a deep ruby-dark brown colour with low smooth head and smooth body. Aroma of malt and plums with some licorice hints. Taste of malt, raisins, plums, licorice, woods, torf, roast and leaves. Hints of chocolate. Light unpleasant smokey finish. Drinkable.

Abrakarl (342) - SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2014
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.

MrHangover (2765) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2014
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.
