3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5L bottle brought home from ØlKonsortiet, Aalborg. A finger of latte head, quickly shrinking to a ring of tiny bubbles. Body is the darkest brown with a reddish hue. Initial aroma of alcohol-soaked roasted nuts. Feels quite unrefined and solventy on the nose, actually. Hints of brown sugar and peppery dark malts. Taste is sweet malty, bordering on harsh. Moderately roasted with a sourish tone. Notes of wood and licorice. Alcohol is noticable. Mid-bodied. Sharp, light astringent mouthfeel. Sourish and peppery malt finish. Goes well down, but a bit edgy and unrefined. Will probably improve with cellaring.

Dette er snop, sier dr Melberg denne fine maikvelden på Mandag i annen. Og den er sannelig lett å helle innpå, farlig lett for omdreiningshastigheten. Vi skåler for en tam dag på jobben i morgen!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Denmark, pours a deep, nearly flat brown with light sour plum notes plus pear drops and toffee on the nose. Palate has a slight tartness, plus treacle, forest berries, a dry bitterness, a touch of earthy wood, and a little spice and coffee. The mouthfeel is interestingly syrupy-sweet yet dry-bitter. Really doesn’t drink its strength, until you start to notice the warmth spreading to your head!
