2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 8, 2013 draft at 73 Restaurant and Cafe This was called Kaldi dark by Johanna the bartender. The beer poured a deep dark amber but not opaque with a nice beige head. This is a very balanced beer with a sweet aroma of caramel malts and so is the flavor. The beer also had an acidic side almost like cider mash. The carbonation was average for the medium body beer. The finish was sweet but smooth. No bitterness in the aftertaste.

As with the Kaldi Lager the aroma was a bit sickening sweet and its head was a bit thin, but it also tasted good. In fact this beer is even better than Kaldi Lager. 10/10 on taste!

330ml bottle from Vinbudin, Reykjavik. Big foamy lasting beige head. Clear brown body. Roasted, with whiff of prunes, anice and vanilla rods. A bit sweet in taste though, looks a bit better than it tastes. Shared at Rating Session in Tårnrommet 22.06.11

Flaske 0,33l - påspandert - og delt på Tårnrommet 22 Jun 11. Brun. Lavt, litt farget skum. Kraftig søt karamellaroma. Smaken det samme. Søt - og rimelig uforandret. Bra - men for søt.

Praise for Snegurochka who provided this one for our rating session. Clear, dark amber body, tiny beige head. Roasted caramel malts to the nose, bready notes. Plain roasted sweet malts in flavour. Dry, sour-bitter end. About par (Tromsø, 22.06.2011).
