Inbreak (1897) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2014
15.02.2014, 0,33l bottle sampled @ the brewery:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma instantly kind of stings in the nose with some kind of boozyness, then the grainy fruityness takes over, caramel malts, dried fruits, almond cake, grass, nuts, hay. Taste is slightly dry grainy, caramel malts, hay, slightly roasted grain, almond essence, grass, hints of dried fruits. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

Finn (4030) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2014
Flaske 0,33l. Gave fra Rune. Mørk rødbrun. Pent, litt farget skum som daler sakte. Litt lacing. Aroma av krydder & litt frukt. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken beholder krydderpreget og blir litt bitter etter hvert. Koseøl! Litt sedimenter igjen i glasset.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 1, 2014
Sampled from a 0.33l bottle @ the brewery. This is a kinda blurry, perhaps light cloudy deep amber almost bronze colored and it has a nice medium sized soft beige top. On the nose it had bit a sweetness and a clear fruitiness. Almost honey-melon sweetness with dark candied sugar and some caramel. Smells quite nice, gentle and nice. This one also has a really round and balanced flavor. It’s somewhat dark caramel infused in the taste with subtle hints of dark fruits and malt drops. Yeah, quite a good one! 15.02.2014

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle at Fastelavn Smagning 2014 @ J&C’s beer palace, Jutland 28/02/14. Hazed dark orange amber with moderate beige spotting/edgework. Nose is over ripened fruit, toffee, spice, straw. Taste comprises brown sugars, dark fruits, toffee, light spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so, doesn’t offer much but isn’t offensive either!
