Aftertaste; mild malts, hints of licorice, or maybe it’s dark caramel. Tasty. Should be served not too chilled, 10-12’c.

on can. Pours a clear copper, head is slightly tanned. Aroma is malty, slightly wet dog. Taste has some bitterness, but also metalic from the can. Not my favorite. I was expecting a fuller body.

IPAgutten79 (766) - Skui, NORWAY - APR 21, 2014
Brunlig med lavt skum. Aroma av malt og noe humle. Muligens karamell også. Smaker søtt, men med små hint av bitterhet. Vannaktig. Tynn/medium konsistens. Liker ikke ettersmaken, ellers helt greit øl.

tbonde (176) - DENMARK - MAY 1, 2015
On tap@Oslo Airport@approx 6 degrees C. Pours dark amber with sufficient off-white head with pretty short retention. Quite sweet aroma of malt, bread and caramel also reflected in the taste which is pretty one-dimensional and sweet. Very restratined bitterness in the aftertaste and somewhat watery palate. This is a beer to be drunk slowly and it gets better as the carbonation wears off, but still too one dimensional and not very interesting.

ERB92 (509) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2014
Malt, caramel, Bread, grass and a hint of dried fruits in the aroma. Deep amber with a off-white head. Medium sweet and a light bitterness. Medium body with a average carbonation. Overall not a bad Dunkel, but as most of the Norwegian versions a bit boring.

Kita (1464) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 31, 2014
Can, 0.50l. Clear ruby brown color with medium cfrothy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, bread, slightly roasted mat and honey. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel and light roasted maltiness, follows sour grassy with crisp and dry mouthfeel and medium bitter finish. Light to medium body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. My first Norwegian brew, quite good for mainstream brew...
