3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. BBE 15.7.2011.
Pours a pitch black colour with a large, foamy, beige head. A bit lacy. Aroma of very strong hops with pine needles and smoke. Flavour of strong hops, chocolate, pine needles, grass and coffee with some sweet notes as well. Medium bodied with a very smooth mouthfeel and a mouthdrying hoppy finish. Very pleasant for such a low-ABV brew.

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.)
