Idiosynkrasie (4081) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2014
750ml bottle. Murky orangey amber colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting and lacing, beige head. Yeasty, herbal aroma, hints of caramel and toffee, some coffee in the background. Taste is initially floral yeasty and bitter hoppy, followed by moderately sweet caramel malty notes with a touch of toffee, intensifying coffee notes. Quite nice.

Holmen1 (2763) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 9, 2014
Flaske delt på Mandag i Annen, Cardinal sep-14: den siste av fire fra Fantome denne kvelden. Ruby i navnet men ikke i fargen, den er mer uklar, nesten grumset oransje. Lett besk bæraktig smak, skarp, grønne kaffebønner. Raffinert og god!

Muddy orange. Off-white head. Green coffee beans and vegetables in aroma. Similar taste, also with green chili. Coffee in aftertaste. Well-balanced.
