3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pale golden color, foamy head. Hoppy nose, notes of citrus, herbs, grapefruit. Flavor is light malt, light sweet, mainly hoppy. Mainly citrus notes, grapefruit, citrus peel and hints of herbs. Nice, but why the hell white stout?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the brewery.
Appearance - golden with a thin fluffy head.
Nose - light pine, custard (maybe funky).
Taste - dry biscuits, green apples.
Palate - medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a dry finish.
Overall - this is gnarly and not very generous, considering the alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average and mostly lasting head. Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some floral fruitiness and light grassy hoppyness, faint alcohol. Body is moderate to full and malty and dryish, light floral fruitiness and light bread, light grassy hoppyness and light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and dryish, light bread, some sharp piney - grassy hoppyness, some alcohol. OK well hopped strong ale - too much alcohol in the finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Reminds me more of a barley wine. Aroma of oatmeal, alcohol and caramel. Similar flavours with some roasty malt, apple seed and caramel. Quite bitter and dry with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Tasty!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fra flaske på Cardnaltreff sep-13: mye såpeskum her! Gylden strågul. Lite humlearoma, men snev av alkohol. Bitterheten balanserer alkoholsødmen og -styrken, men denne ølen mangler egensmak. Nondescript ville kanskje en engelskmann sagt. "Massive floral and resinous caracter" iflg bryggeriets egenmelding. Tørr ettersmak. Kanskje verdt et nytt forsøk.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Light orange, hazy. Nose is like a amarillo/cascade apa: peach, citrus, resins, floral tones. Body is bitter and a bit thinnish, dry. Harsh. Some caramel, yeast residue, staleness. I presume this is a flovery apa-style ipa. A bit hard, not in balance.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at GBBF 2012. Golden with a lacy fine white head and aromas of peachy malt and citrussy hops, becoming simultaneously floral, dry-malty and bitter in the mouth, before a peppery-bitter finish. No, it’s not a "stout" in the Porter sense, but as the brewery’s description says, it certainly is "stout" in the old sense.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 50 cl. Slightly hazy golden in color with a whitish head. Floral, parfume, dishwasher, perhaps some fruits in aroma. Floral and slightly grassy bitter hops in taste. Somewhat fruity as well in aftertaste. A bit harsh. Gets a bit better as it warms up and more flavors appears.
