500ml bottle from EuroSpar Tomasjord, shared with Richard. Clear reddish-brown body colour. Low beige head. Grainy malts on the nose, mid-sweet. Taste of malts with notes of dark chocolate and coffee offset by dusty hops. Dry malt bitter endnotes. Easy to drink and foods friendly. Alright (Tromsø 18.04.2014).

Bottle picked up by dad from Geltsdale Brewery, cheers dad. Consumed at home Sunday 17.08.13 Reddy brown pour with light tan head. I chilled this (not sure why) so aroma is difficult to pick up. Maybe as it warms ever so slightly perhaps I"m getting a little watery spent coffee grains. Touch chewy with some caramel and biscuit. Its one of yer’ fairly average twiggy brown beers as some would describe them. Its ok. A5 A3 T6 P3 Ov11 2.8

tfredvik (942) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2013
Dark copper body with a small, beige head consisting of short-lived big bubbles. Quite strong aroma with burn notes, burnt sugar, stale coffee and cigarette. Hardy any bitterness in the finish, light to moderate sweet initial taste. Flavours follow the aroma. Quite light bodied, dry finish, soft carbonation. Nice-ish, but forgettable.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 9 months before BB date, from Meny Alna, Oslo]
