33 cl bottle at home. This is a beautifully made Old Ale, with aromas and tastes reminiscent of imperial stouts I have tried in the past. Aroma makes me think of nuts and dried fruit, taste brings me even deeper into that territory. It promises to be a Christmas dessert in and of itself, and it delivers. Well played, Berentsen.

anchr (18) - Trondheim, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2012
A very robust beer with lots of complexity. Starting a bit cold, but probably too far from the 10C recommended, the bitterness stole a lot of attention from the malt and body of this beer, too much, I think. When warming up the whole range of aroma and taste came out. Some stinging mouthfeel that is not CO2 or alcohol

Bathory (458) - Kverneland, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2012
Pours a nearly black colour with a small brown head. Aroma are quite sour actually, with pina and some spices as the dominant smells. Flavour are mostly chocolate, but it’s very fresh, and has an impressive balance! Same with the aftertaste, a tiny touch of alcohol in the end, but that’s just enjoyable. This beer impressed me a lot.

Pours a dark brown, almost black which reveals some red when held to the light. Light brown head that settles a bit quickly. Aroma of caramel, cocoa powder and a hint of dark fruits. Taste is more of the afore mentioned, with some sweetness balanced towards a pleasant bitter aftertaste.
