3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle conditioned, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.2%. Golden colour, slightly hazy, large white head. Pleasant aroma of fruity hops on a sweetish malty background. Medium sweet flavour, distinctly malty, but also with strong hoppy notes and a resinous and bitter finish. The alcohol is evident, and I’d easily believe that the beer was even stronger than it actually is. American Columbus hops are hardly part of a trustworthy "re-creation of the White Stout style", but never mind the name - this is a decent and quite enjoyable strong ale, more American than English in its character.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a with a bubbly broken white head. The aroma is woody resin hop. The flavour is strong bitter with a rich malt alcoholic woody resin hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a bubbly mouthfeel. More like a bubbly Belgian strong ale.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s light gold with a small off-white head. The nose is light peas, some coffee, some chocolate sweetness. The taste is light chocolate, more vegetable notes, some grassy hops. Chocolate. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, there’s something very strange and incongruous about this beer. This just doesn’t mesh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.5 l, at Pikkulintu, 20120929) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had hops, malts and cowhouse. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, hops, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. The aroma was quite confusing at the beginning but the cowhouse smell disappeared quite quickly. The taste was surprisingly dry and hoppy. Not bad.
