3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle from Ýlbutikken i think.
clear orange, smooth brown-orange head.
delicate aroma of malts and fruits. Really nice aroma. Flavor is malty, wood, booze, a little bit of a taste like oranges, in fact quite a lot of bitter woody notes, much better than my expectations, tastes sort of like a really sophisticated european style barley wine. one of the better vintages, i might buy one more and see how it ages.
