4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(in bottle) very drk brown/reddish, steady, white head. heavy malted, sparkling nose, sourdough notes, grainy sent. Perfedt carbonation takes the alcohol and the semi-tart malt taste to a new high. Very impressive balance between the rye and it´s firm palate and a zingy, refreshing mouthfeel. Lashing sugars in the finish, makes a really nice pair with the alcoholic feel and the woody/dry malted notes. Proud to be nordic, am I.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear amber-brown with three fingers of pillowy tan head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is molasses, green spruce tips, bready caramel malt, floral. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter, slight spiciness. (6/10) Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, lightly spicy finish. (4/5)
Feels very nordic - the combination of spicy rye, green wood, and dark malt feels like something that would be very appropriate to drink in the nordic darkness waiting for spring to arrive... He said, drinking in the nordic darkness, waiting for spring to arrive. Definitely an old-fashioned, hearty brew. (14/20)
