2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gusher. Big offwhite head. Hazy deep red body with strong
carbonation. Fruity sugary funky aroma with wooden notes.
Dry-sweet resiny wooden fruity taste with sugary roasty notes.
Mid-bodied. Slightly harsh mouthfeel. Harshly bitter wooden
resiny aftertaste with funky sugary notes. Too harsh, sweet, and
funky. Disharmonic. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark ruby brew, fruity aroma. Carbonation under control.
Complex. Rather sour, cherries, rhubarb. Does not fit into standard categories. Vinous. Ends up bittersweet, there are strong hop elements dancing around a body that has plenty malt sweetness.
Fine, but one bottle is enough at a time.

Taste: bitter start, herbal hops, pretty spicy, sourish, cocoa powder. Aftertaste: very bitter, cardboard, bit spicy, dry, hint of sugar. Tastes like the bottle is 5 years old, but it’s only 8 months old!
