2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Too sweet for me, but cinnamon and honey front and center but not terribly so, although a little thick on the tougue - another consequesnce of the high sugar. Light hops, low carbination do not help the matter.

0,33 flaske delt med Ovesen på tappekveld mars-15: mørk upusset kobber. Ikke helt frisk aroma og smak av tørket frukt og bær. Uspennende og lite som minner om det jeg forbinder med biere de garde.

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 24.03.15. Dark orange. Off-white head and lacing. Sweet and slightly unfresh aroma. Fruity and with berries. Similar taste, also with dried fruits, dried berries and wine gum.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured a dark amber with good and lasting off-white head. Aroma of malts and molasses, with hints of rock candy. Taste is a wall of sugar, moving to dark malt and obvious alcohol, little bitterness at all. Full bodied, long malt finish that is progressively drier. Overall, good, but way too overpoweringly sweet for my liking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper-amber colour with a frothy white head. Noses of toast, caramel and a light herbal hop infusion. Light carbonation, slick and a medium body. Rather sweet at first with dome bitterness coming up. Nicely balanced offering a medium finish, another good beer for creamy cheeses.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a fairly clear amber color, topped with a nice white head. Malty aroma easily picked up with some caramel and yeasty smell, notes of fruits also present. Taste starts malty and sweet, some yeasty notes and obvious alcohol. Bitterness in the end. Not that nice to be fair.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Une bonne bière avec un gout de caramel. Il lui manque l’âme d’une bière artisanale mais elle reste tout à fait correcte

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amberish color with a white head. Some lacing. Sweet malty and fruity aroma. Medium + body. A bit sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average carbonation. Fruity, malty, bready and some alcohol in the flavor. Quite sweet and unbalanced ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 0.75l. Clear deep amber color with medium soapy white head and fair lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt, yeast and herbal hops. Taste starts moderate sweet malty, following is fruity, bready with notes of honey, warming alcoholic mouthfeel and light bitter finish. Medium body, syrupy texture and average carbonation in palate. Interesting, although it lacks a bit of character...
