Idiosynkrasie (5855) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2013
750ml bottle. Minimally cloudy amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Minimally sourish, slightly herbal aroma with cautious nutty and caramel malty notes in the background. Taste is initially dry herbal with minimally sweet malty background, the sweetness fades away, leaving to a dry herbal finish.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2013
Beautifully designed 0.75 L bottle, bought @Ølhandleriet, Mathallen, Oslo. Low dense greyish blond head. And let’s say; Hazy chestnut colored body. Pretty nice smell of something herbal and floral, with a whiff of nutty, marzipan-like malts. Fine malt profile. Clean, sweet and light nutty. The chestnuts added, provides some interesting flavors, also a light soapy sidenote. Balancing bittering hops underneath. Oily mouthfeel. Overall, a tasty and interesting beverage.

Rune (10504) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2013
Big 750ml bottle, lotto 15 203/12, shared at The BrewDog Bar in Manchester. Patchy surface over a hazy, dark amber coloured body. Good amount of lacework. Smell of sappy fruits with hints of candy sweetness. Rather succulent taste of fruits, lightly spiced, and mingled with nutty malts. Not overly sweet to the finish. Smooth and clean in the mouth. Quite well bodied considering the relatively low alcohol strength (25.01.2013).

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - DEC 4, 2012
Tasted on tap @Bir&Fud, Rome on 28/10/2012. Pours of incredibly dark brown color with amazing snowy white head. Aroma is quite faint, but the beer is overcooled. Taste is malty sweet upfront, having raisins and figs tones as well. Aftertaste is bit sour, like a spoiled beer. Pretty basic beer, by all means. Neutral. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
