3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cola brown, no head to speak of. Nose is sticky sweetness with lots of malts and raisins, mild spice notes, caramel notes. Flavor is very boozy with malts, raisins, caramel. Sharp alcohol in the long finish. Intense, but very boozy and pretty simple. Sampled at the overpriced beer tasting.

200€ worth of beer. Bottle 3778. Pours slightly cloudy dark cherry. Aroma of rye bread, kind of a pumpernickel. Oily and with a well hidden abv for 12.5. Overly sweet, roasted and with a quick finish. A good experience.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Corked, not easy to open the 375ml bottle. No.623/4400, bought at Vinmonopolet Vika three years ago. Bright naked surface to a deep dark ruby coloured body. Aroma of dark fruits and wood. Taste profile of prunes, figs and sweet dark malts. Malt bitter ending with a discreet touch of whisky. Well rounded on the swallow. Slow sipper, perfect for sharing (shared with Finn, Tromsø 10.12.2014).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle with Pat and Ben. A bit murky dark red brown colour with a tan head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, some spices, tobacco, woody. Flavour is sweet initially with caramel, wood, raisins, prunes, alcohol, liquorice, perhaps some whisky. Body is medium. Whisky is downplayed and on the whole this is well balanced.
