3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske 750ml fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Delt med djoeye på Nerstranda 16 Aug 14. Svart. Så vidt gjennomskinnelig. Høyt litt farget luftig skum som varer. Aroma av røstet malt & lakris. Smaken er sjokolade & kaffe. Skjemmes av for mye kullsyre som ødelegger litt av den gode smaken.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance:Black with big beige head. Good retention. Head will leave some light lacing.
Aroma: Roasted malts, herbal tones, nuts
Taste: First caramel followed by some smoke cold coffee with a light sournessand and the more roasted malts and herbal notes and a hint of cardboard in the finish
Light body, soft carbonation.
The nice thing is the super easy drinkability while it has some nice complexity. Interresting at least.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
75cl bottle. Pours black with a fine, creamy beige head. Very light smell of roasted malts and caramel. Taste is roasted malts with a cola-like sweetness. Very easy to drink without being watery, light carbonation. Sweet aftertaste. Can’t feel the tobacco at all, absolutely not what I was expecting.

Pours dark, nice head that finally falls. Aroma is smokey and has a lot of roast. Also some caramel and something sweet. Taste has some carmel at first, smoke disappears and roast flavours remain. Not too frightening and a nice one as a simple dark brew. Goes well together with pizza.

0.75l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a deep dark coffee brown colored one with a medium sized light brown bubbly top. On the nose there is lots of old chocolate and some cocoa. Small traces of both chestnuts, cold coffee, cardboard, vinduspuss and lots of cigar smoke. Lots of strange things here! Not loving it but it’s not that bad either. Is this a smoked one? It tastes quite alright. Soft to flat on the carbonation and it has a gliding almost slick mouthfeel. I like the way this tastes. Milky old harden sun damaged chocolate with cold coffee, more earthy cigar smoky tones and a little bit of cardboard. Strange in many many ways, but also tasty. 23.10.2013
