tom10101 (2218) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2013
From bottle @ The Festival. Hazy caramel color with a low beige head and little to no lacing. Aroma is of cognac, wood, toffee, caramel, alcohol, vanilla and fruity notes. Taste is moderately to heavily sweet with cognac, wood, toffee, vanilla, caramel, fruits, alcohol and light bitterness. Full bodied. Low carbonation. Very complex. Too sweet, but it’s a 17,3% abv beer. With a little more carbonation, this could be great!

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. A monster! It’s somewhat clear and deep red-brown in the glass this one. A bit anonymous on the nose at first, so better let it breathe for a while. A while later; oh yeah, lots of sweet dark fudge and caramel here. Not even a hint of the alcohol, but it’s really deep complex and concentrated this. Figs, dates and other sweet dried fruits, some cocoa traces and a strong big good amount of cherry. Mmhhh.. Really nice! Loaded with flavors also, and here you’ll most definitely items can sense the alcohol. Yo can actually almost see and touch it as well. Sticky and concentrated in the mouth with a soft prickling carbonation level. Loaded with dark fruits and some cough syrup. Slightly salty also in a way, a dry the cherry is definitely present the in the taste as well. Lots of taste, perhaps a bit to much? Is that even possible? 03.05.2013
