Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Murky, reddish brown colour. Huge light beige head, reduces fairly rapidly to a stable film and a moderately sticky ring. Aroma needs some temperature to open up, and contains by ripe fruit (plums, banana, strawberry, orange peel), malt, hops, cake, alcohol, hint of licorice. Medium body, lively carbonation. Taste is quite sweet and alcoholic, nicely balanced by fruity acidity and a growing bitterness. Pleasant bittersweet aftertaste.

Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Langnes. Drukket hjemme 19 Mai 12. Brun. Veldig høyt, litt farget skum som varer veldig lenge og fester seg til glasset. God krydderaroma. Avrundet smak. Plommer & nøtter. Alkoholen kommer sigende i form av en behagelig sødme i ettersmaken. Avslutter tørt. Litt sedimenter i flaska. KI=6

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge beige head. Hazy opaque amber body with strong carbonation.
Syrupy spicy licorice aroma with herbal strawberry candy notes.
Sweet-dryish herbal licorice taste with spicy notes. Fullish
body. Sharpish, soft mouthfeel with slight heat. Dry herbal
licorice aftertaste with roasty earthy spicy alcohol notes. Very nice
and highly drinkable. Perhaps a bit sweet, and bit less harmonic
than it could be. (0.5l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)
