abemorsten (3030) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2015
Disig dyp oransje kropp med et medium lysebrunt skumdekke. Krokan og lønnesirup dominerer av lukt. Nøtteaktig karamell og knekk i munnen. Medium kropp. Lettdrikkelig.

Awesome pint pour of hazelnut brown, rich amber notes. Aroma is lightly hopped with plenty of caramel and hazelnut notes. Plenty of nutty notes. Smooth malt and super enjoyable.

nihtila (838) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
15.5.2014. Brown-amber colour, thick dense brown head. Aroma of strong hazelnut, cant get much more, maybe toffee. Palate is smooth and creamy, also lots of hazelnut, malts, some chocolate and coffee, syrupy sweetness. Surprisingly good for flavoured beer.
