haukur (1432) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - OCT 11, 2013
Grass and loads of buscuits in the aroma. Taste is mildly sweet, tiny hopbite but very malty. Maybe this bottle is past it´s prime? Biscuit is the word for this. A rather tame hoppy ale.

Mortlach (1297) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 7, 2013
07/09/2013 330ml bottle. Dorata, limpidissima, schiuma bianca abbondante, mediamente persistente. Naso stanco, note fruttate, leggermente agrumate e pinose, biscotto, caramello, non pulitissima. In bocca conferma le stesse sensazioni, non freschissima, caramello preponderante e amaro stentato. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Deludente per gli standard di Dark Star.

BOTTLE. Head: off-white, medium, frothy, avg. retention. Colour: copper, clear. Aroma: caramel dominates the hops, citrus hops in the background, some pine. Taste: hop bitterness upfront, caramel, some neutral/saltyish notes in the middle and more hops in the zesty finish. Nice IPA.
