2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle on the ferry from Seyisfj°rur. Virtually odourless, rich ruby in colour, drawing out towards almost Scotch-like warmth towards the end. More approachable than its big sister but in need of more nourishment.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with stable off-white head. Mild aromaof hops, malt and a touch of fruit. Sweetish, malty flavour with notes of hops, dried fruit and caramel. Creamy mouthfeel. Almost no finish; it is as though every sip mysteriously vanishes when it reaches the hard palate. Not bad, but more like a triple than an ESA.

Bottled (thanks Papsoe!). Amber colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is floral, wooden, some toffee and a bit saltwatery notes. Flavour is a bit salty, malty and quite toffeeish and a bit sweet as well. Not too much alcohol atleast while cold.

in the barley wine genre, kind of harsh palate. Aroma is very pleasing for a cold day. will probably improve by cellaring.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
280912: It is a clear amber strong ale with a short foam. Vinous aroma. The taste is sweet and dominated by alcohol team. Oh it was really better if it was about 5.8% as in the old days (March 2012) when it was max alcohol percent to be brewing by Faeroese law.
