(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20121208) The beer poured very dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had roasted malts, chocolate and vanilla. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, vanilla, dark chocolate and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty, sweet and bitter. A quite confusing beer. Vanilla is a pleasant flavour but here it was a bit too intense and hid other flavours.

Holmen1 (2397) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Flaske fra polet på Kvadrat: Svart, med fint skum som desverre forsvinner fort. Krydret aroma i tillegg til vanlige porteraromaer (røstet malt, mørk sjokolande og kaffe. Den deilige smaken er ditto, og vaniljen kommer til sin rett ettersom temp. stiger, med litt kanel i tillegg. Stjerneanisen er brukt diskret. Lett syrlighet, fin munnfylde og stor drikkbarhet. Nok et velsmakende brygg fra Fanø. Fra fat på Kick i Kristiansand nov-13: beskrivelsen over og poeng tiltredes, også i år er dette et øl med stor kompleksitet og smaksfylde. Men til en pris som bare astronomer kan like. Alt på denne velassorterte puben har ublu priser.
