TyggaBrown (430) - NORWAY - JAN 31, 2015
Not so happy with the balance in this beer, but some of the tastes and the aroma is great. Too much sweetness and lack of freshness when it comes to balance, but the amount of spices and taste of yeast is great.

tfredvik (1469) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2014
Clear, deep copper body with a creamy, beige, long-lived head that laces the glass. Malty, moderate aroma of caramel and fruits, and hints of orange and alcohol in the back. Strong flavour of dark dried fruits, generic fruits, caramel and faint spices. It doesn’t actually taste of orange, despite the citric elements of the aroma. It’s a full-bodied, oily, softly carbonated and very sweet brew with just a light bitterness, but it still feels rather crisp and not at all cloying. Could this be the works of the lager yeast? A good one.
[33 cl bottle (actually two of them), from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Light beige head on clear dark dark brown ruby body. No lacing to report. Aroma; brown sweet fruity malts, some fruits and nuts, milky chocolate. Taste; brown sweet malts, nut honey syrup, dry hops, leather, tannins, and finishes into the dark sweet malty department with notes of prunes, raisins, chocolate, mocca beans. Finish lasts for a while too. Feels ok bodied and softly carbonated. Overall; the nutty and not naughty beer. [33cl brown btl, abv7% 20IBU, BB01.03.2016, 8€, B@Vinmonopolet Langnes Tromsö]
