Palme (3606) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2012
From cask @ Borefts 2012. This is a deep brown one with a big-bubbly and sidesticking beige top. On the nose I get a soft chocolate tone, biscuits, some ripe old fruits and that’s about it. Soft to flat on the carbonation an it has a mild oily mouthfeel. Fruity hoppy flavors. Not much roastiness in this one. Tastes more like a dry English style IPA juiced up and added a black color. Still, it’s quite tasty. 30.09.2012

Vaiz (3595) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle. Black pour, creamy tan head. Aroma is grassy floral hops, some grapefruit, hint of roasted malts. Flavor is very roasted bitter, some decent hops, well balanced. A bit harsh but very nice.
