3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2012 Re-rate 2/29/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Dror. Almost clear brown color with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, a bit of chocolate and some hops. Sweetish flavor, somewhat roasty, with mildly bitter and finish with faint citric notes. Medium-bodied. Decent, but most of the hops are gone unfortunately. 7/3/6/3/13=3.2
[10/4/11] Draught at Ølbaren in Copenhagen. Hoppy aroma of tropical fruits. Flavor has a bit of sweetness and a bitter fruity hops finish. Medium-bodied. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Biggish brown head. Deep dark red barely translucent body with strong carbonation. Roasty wooden gooseberry aroma. Dry roasty wooden dusty taste with fruity gooseberry notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry roasty resiny chocolate aftertaste with metallic gooseberry notes. Nice and clean, but I don’t enjoy the combination of roastiness and citric hops. (0.5l bottle, Meny Grønland Torg, Oslo.)
