Bottle at home. Has a cloudy, deep brown to black colour with a huge, beige and creamy head. Aroma of oak, dried fruit, berries, forest floor, barnyard and some hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big 750ml bottle topped by a cork and a wire, from Vinmonopolet Langnes. Rocky beige head, decent off-white head. Mixed smell of tart fruits and sweet malts, vinous. Flavour of grainy malts, plums and hints of dark chocolate added by a little dry tartness to the finish. Hidden alcohol. Medium bodied and foamy in the mouth. Satisfying, not great though (shared at a rating session, Tårnrommet, Tromsø 15.05.2014).
