Palme (3441) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 16, 2013
On tap @ Amundsen. This is a deep dark brown - almost black one with a nice medium sized heavy lacing brown head. The aroma is filled with milk chocolate and cold coffee. Roasted malts as well, but the chocolate dominates. More hoppy in the taste. I get vanilla, chocolate paper, sweet dark caramel and something reminding me of leather jacket. Lots of flavor in this, and I’m found of flavors. Ends with a roasted finish and traces of cold coffee in the aftertaste. Solid stuff! 01.03.2013

On tap @ Amundsen. Pours black, with a big beige head. Very nice hoppy aroma with tropical fruits, peach and orange peel, as well as burned wood and some coffee. Medium body with creamy texture. Flavour is sweet with burned malts, caramel and coffee, as well as notes of chocolate, liquorice and some hoppy bitterness of orange peel. Finishes off with a grapefruity bitterness. Nice brew.

Gr0ve (2140) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2013
250 ml draught at Amundsen. Pitch black. Clear. Light creamy beige head that clings to the glass. Gentle piney hops aroma with roasted malts. Soft texture. More dark malts than hops in this one moves it closer towards a stout than a black IPA. Well balanced.
