Thanks to grandpa! Bottle. Pours clear ruby red amber with a small, short lasting, white head. Aroma has caramel, cookie dough, some sweet belgian esters, dried plums and dates and banana. Taste has long time boiled hops, and therefore some more bitterness. Still quite a lot of caramel malty sweetness, fruits and stuff. Little low carbonation for my taste. Medium body.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
in the barley wine genre, kind of harsh palate. Aroma is very pleasing for a cold day. will probably improve by cellaring.
