3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On the good end of BPs, it’s lighter and less cloying/less toffee-ish than most, though not too watery either. Some velvet, some sweet brown chocolate/roasted nuttiness in there. Not the most sophisticated brown but drinkable enough, esp. at slightly colder temperatures.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle many thanks to Stefan and Elisabeth for sharing. Bubbly, tan- coloured head. Mahogany coloured body. Poor lacing. Aroma of brittle caramel. Sweet spiced malty taste, notes of cinnamon, ginger and wort. Sweet ending and way too sweet overall. Drinkable in small amounts (rating session, Tromsø, 23.04.2013).

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours deep cooper to black with white small top, vanish fast.
Aroma like Cola, taste the same but no so sweet. A bit spicy on tongue. No roasted malt at all, not in aroma, nor in taste. I wonder how this one goes under Baltic porter. Weird. And I didn’t felt those 7% of alco - not at all. This should be under lemonade.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled (old backlog, thanks SADESA!). Deep brown colour with a small beigeish brown head that disappears quite quickly. Aroma is ginger, some slight roasted notes as well as mild rubber and some toffeeish notes. Flavour is mild toasted malts, some grains, cooked vegetables, mild rubber as well as some sweet alcoholic notes. Yet the beer manages to be quite watery and thin as for the palate.
