Bottle at the wombat. Very nice amber colouring. Aroma of sweets and fruits. The taste is also sweet and fruity with hints of alcohol. Liked it for half a glass, after that it became a struggle to finish my glass.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2009
0.3 L bottle. A dense, fingerthick yellow tanned head over an orange to light brown colored body with good clarity. Sweet buttery malts and cream-caramel to the nose. Also a whiff of ripe apples and alcohol. Taste is medium to heavy sweet. Buttery malts again, backed by some mild bittering hops. A sour tone is noticable. Mid-bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Malty, light bitter-sweet ending. Goes well down, but does stand out in any way.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a dark red wine-like colour with a medium off-white head and a sweet, fruity aroma with hints of prunes, caramel, rhum and molasses. The taste is bitter sweet, with both hops and notes of malts, alcohol, molasse, toffee, milk chocolate and dark fruits. The finish is both sticky sweet and mildly hoppy. pretty good
