Clear brown color, short head. Aroma of some faint hop, bit fruity, malty, ’runderbouillon’ as Bullit described it :). Quite boring.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank on a ferry when shared by Eugene. Poured a hazed amber color with an off-white head. Light notes of smoke and roasted malt. The flavor again had light notes of roasted malt. Thin and watery with a hint of smoke and a touch of raisin. Light body. Should have thrown it overboard.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Several of us at the Grand Tasting found this to be one of the highlights, I did not. Bron colour, low head. Saccharine aroma and colour from E150 maybe. Obviously no deeper malt sensations, just like a mediocre Swedish X-mas beer. Bit bitter.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown colour, with almost no head. Aroma and flavours are of beef broth indeed. Heat and mix with port, mustard and shallots to form a nice sauce which goes excellent with beef tenderloin.

Flaske 0,33l - pĺspandert - og delt pĺ Tĺrnrommet 22 Jun 11. Brun. Lavt, litt farget skum. Kraftig sřt karamellaroma. Smaken det samme. Sřt - og rimelig uforandret. Bra - men for sřt.

330 ml bottle purchased at the Vín Búđ - Kringlan, Reykjavik, Iceland. Pour is light orange, ruby, brown - clear. 2 inch off white foamy head. Aroma is dirty chemical, some nut-caramel sweetness. Taste is better than the nose, somewhat sweet, smooth drinkable palate.
