ComradeK (1071) - The Vale of Dundas, - MAY 16, 2013
340ml bottle. Pours an opaque chestnut-flashed black, with a huge light beige head, which lasts well without leaving much lace. The aroma has some very faint herbal hops, ginger, molasses and cola, which make for a strange mix. Mild herbal hops up front are swamped by a very high level of carbonation, which kills most of the flavour. There is a touch of soft toffee in the mid-palate, as well as some very faint banana. The finish has a cola flavour to it. This is not a great beer. It is way too carbonated, which dulls what flavour it has; once it flattens in the glass it is still pretty dull. It does, however, come from Namibia, and in its favour I’m willing to bet it is one of the best beers to be had in the whole country.

At a beer tasting. Interesting to try beer from Namibia but this was not any good.

Hazy golden colored beer with a small white head. Some light caramel and wheat aromas. Slightly sweet flavor with almost no bitterness. Oily with weak carbonation.

robbienate (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Strong caramelized banana and clove with a hint of vanilla. Deep, dark colour with a somewhat rowdy head that is often unpredictable. Pleasant body with a bit of a sour-taste which detracts from the overall enjoyable offering.

KeefOz (1176) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2014
Upon pouring, the beige coloured foam filled the 20cm tall glass to the rim and retained too well. It produced an opaque dark amber coloured liquid. Carbonation low and fine. Visually unappealing. Aroma strongly of molasses but with an underlying sourness. Taste sour and vinegary – terrible!! One of the worst beers I’ve tasted!

330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from 2013. Not a world beater but certainly not the worst beer I have ever had.

Rune (9501) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2013
340ml bottle, 6 % abv, picked up at Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo and shared with Finn back home. A gusher. Unclear dark brown body with a rustic shade. Fast diminishing tan-coloured head. Tart and sweet aroma of dried fruits and yeast. Unsuccessful blend of yeast, caramel malts and sour fruits. Foamy and empty in the mouth. Drain pour (mass online tasting, Tromsø 03.12.2013).

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 0.34l bottle. After the pop it slowly rises and definitely wants out of the bottle. Easy to see that this has way to much carbonation when pouring it in the glass, cause it immediately forms a gigantic kinda dirty beige looking top that quickly fizzes away. When it has settled it’s clear that this is a cloudy really deep dark wood brown colored beer. The nose is a mix between sour wood and sweet caramel. A bit strange to say the least. I have my suspicions that there might be a little infection going on here. Yeah, ehm. This is not drinkable. Soapy water added lemon and wood chips - leaving it for a year in a clear bottle and you might get something like this. Well, perhaps I’m a bit rough now, but this is a horrible tasting thing. Should I perhaps for the first time ever go back to the place I bought this and demand my money back? Tempting, but if I know myself I won’t. Anyhow, this is rubbish. Stay clear! 14.09.2013
