Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Nice, dark amber and a good head. The aroma is very malty. The flavour has strong notes of roasted malt, caramel, nuts and a slight vinous character. Initially itís sweet and smooth, but then the bitterness falls in as a nice counterweight to the sweetness. Nice.

Rune (8493) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2007
500ml bottle sampled at a rating session in TromsÝ. Clear mahogany body. Almost no head. Smoky smell of roasted malt. The flavour has got dark caramel notes and nutty hints. Flat and dry ending, slightly bitter. And as Finn said, we need something stronger for the Arctic frost (23.02.2007).

Bottle 0,5l. Dark brown coloured. A small white head. Caramellish aroma. Dry flavor of caramel and fruits. A long, dry aftertaste. Quite enjoyable - but not strong enough to be a proper winter warmer (right now itís -10 deg C outside).
