Braastad (424) - - JUN 25, 2013
Dark reddish brown with good head. Aroma has chocolate malts, as does the flavor, along with slight bitter undertones. Palate is bit watery but nicely smooth.

matstrange (67) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
A very dark almost ruby red colour. The head is thick and creamy although not long lasting. There is a darkness to the flavour but it’s not as hoppy as I was hoping, in fact I’d say it’s a little bland.

MichaelAwesome (4300) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Nice and classic one with some raisins, bit of chocolate, some malt and hops in the aroma. Warming and sweetish in the end with balanced carbo. Not bad.

McTapps (4314) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a light hazy brown colour with low head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of malt and barley. Taste of barley, light cake, malt, ripe berries and biscuits. Easy and smooth to drink - enjoyable beer.

Finn (4263) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 24, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Kilpishalli. Drukket i Skibotn 14 Apr 14. Mørkebrun med litt rødskjær. Lavt luftig skum med litt lacing. God maltaroma. Frisk krydderaktig smak med innslag av mais. Litt tynn. Avslutninga er svakt fruktig & litt tørr.

Rune (8173) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 19, 2014
500ml bottle by the courtesy of Finn. Shared with Richard at an Easter gathering. Deep amber coloured body, creamy off-white head, slowly diminishing. Semi-sweet malt-fruity aroma. Caramel malts dominating the flavour profile added by dried fruits. Moderate bittersweet tail. Medium bodied. Quite tasty beer (Tromsø 18.04.2014).

Brown 500ml bottle 4.5%abv b@kilpishalli pours a light beige head on the light copper clear body, bubbles and lacings are present. Crispy caramel malts, grassy fresh hops, citrus hints and mild spices to the nose. Tastes caramel malts, lemon hops, grass, hints of toffee, hazelnut. Seems to have a good balance. Carbonation is gentle, body alright and aftertaste fruity sweet malts, fruity hops, and some toffee on bread and a sweet kvass, lingering a bit. Overall a decent brew this one.
