Palme (3603) - Bergen, - JUN 7, 2012
0.33l bottle @ Braai Tapperij de Mug, Middelsburg. This is a blurry deep raw red-brown one with a small lightly sidesticking woody-brown head. It has a light caramelly-sweet aroma, some dusty chocolate in here, I also get some dark black ripe berries here. Not extreme, and my nose is getting all sorts of other smoky and perfumy aromas from the people sitting next to me, but I found the aroma in the beer quite nice. Oh, it was a really sweet one! Reminds me of a faro-lambic! Sugar syrup, not any bitterness to speak home about, hints of something acidic in here also. Not especially good, but this is one of those beers I will remember more of the story behind getting it - not so much for the flavor itself. 30.05.2012

MarkoNm (1746) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 23, 2015
From a supermarket somewhere in Normandy. Pours a dark brown color, topped with a decent and lasting beige head. Mild aroma, a bit fruity with some yeasty notes, slight apple presence. Sweet and quite fruity start. A bit peppery and yeasty presence. Slight burn and mild bitterness. Burning feel in the aftertaste.

Bottle from Carrefour City supermarket, Brugge, Belgium. Hazy dark brown with a thin white head. It has a sharp cherry, spicy dried fruit and sherry flavour followed by slightly thin chocolate, vanilla and soapy sourness on the finish.

yngwie (15568) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle. An unclear, amber colored beer with a dense, finger-thick beige head. The aroma is rather malty, with cellar, dried fruits, some ripe apples, prunes and raisins. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a nice but high level of carbonation. Dried fruits, some sweetness and a sourish touch in the flavor, some grains and ripe apples too. Long finish on the fruity side. Sure a decent one, but too grainy and sweet for me. 150724
