2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 330ml (Birger, BB 05/2013)
Clear copper color, steady beige head. Lots of herbs in the nose (oregano, tarragon), also some sweetish malty notes. Medium-bodied. Same herbs in the flavour plus some pepper. Fortunately in the flavour herbs and spices are not dominating so badly. Bready maltyness, maybe hints of liquorice. I’ve had similar Christmas beers before. Not too exciting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle at Christianssand Brygghus. Nice, clear, deep golden body with a small off-white head. Spicy aroma dominated på ginger and tea. Flavor is sweet, spicy, lots of ginger and no real bitterness. Medium body and the aftertaste become a bit sticky. Interesting beer, but I don’t think I will purchase this again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear amber with a low head. Aroma is bitter malts, some berries and lots of herbs. Flavor is bitter malts, berries, alcohol and again lots of herbs. It’s like there’s a built-in Jaeger bomb. At least it’s interesting and they’ve managed the zero IBU bitterness pretty well. Worth trying.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ Brewdog Newcastle:
Fruity to begin with a lot of berries and sweetness plus some raspberries and floral notes with a touch of spice. There is some citrus and a bit of ginger towards the end as well but overall it is relatively light on the nose.
Reddish amber with a bubbly, thumnb sized head that settles to a thin lacing around the edges quite quickly.
Dry tasting with a lot of bitterness and a mix of berries and floral flavours with a strong ginger and floral finish backed up by some spice.
Incredibly dry on the palate with a medium body and a quite bitter yet crisp finish that is slightly grainy and with low carbonation.
A pretty average beer , there is good depth and lots going on but the taste and palate were just far too dry for my liking & certainly not one of Brewdogs better offerings.

On keg at The BrewDog Bar. Pours a golden amber colour with a fair white head. Aroma of rosemary, thyme, mint, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lingering mint sauce. Very different.

Copper color with medium head.
In aroma and taste - resinous, similar to young shoot of spruce. Medium body, medium bitterness.
Generally - experiment completed successfully. That beer reminds IPA. It’s interesting and drinkable.
