Holmen1 (3022) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2015
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff jan-15: kort storboblet skum over en mørk rubinrød øl med en portvinsaktig aroma og smak, drapert i en slank og elegant kappe av maltsødme og humlebitterhet. Stor drikkeglede i 5,2%.

tandembrauer (380) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2015
Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours copper brown with small head. Aroma of caramel, some coffee - reminds me to Karo Kaffee, a German malt coffee. Sweet, but no heavy malt body. Almost dry, fruity finish, with a nicely balancing bitterness. Very drinkable.
