Sehr dunkel in Optik und Geschmack mit etwas viel geröstetem Malz und etwas Kaffee. Recht trinkbar, dabei jedoch etwas zu speziell, wenn auch hocharomatisch. Nicht schlecht.

McTapps (6502) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle from trade with Cunningham - many thanks Henry :-) the beer has got a deep dark brown colour with an low head and medium body. Aroma of coffee and malt. Taste of roasted grains, bread, torf, leaves, malt and mild spices. Dry and roasty finish. Easy to drink, good but average beer.

Holmen1 (4907) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2014
0,33 flaske (takk til Asle Bjørn!), delt med Ovesen: mørkebrun med beige skum, tilløp til kniplinger - som deres ipa et fint utseende og god karbonering som gir en behagelig munnfølelse. Iflg Sigmund er humlene Pilgrim (bitter), EKG (smak) og Fuggles (aroma). Aroma av brød, karamell og noe søtlig krydder. Kraftig kropp, men jeg blir ikke begeistret, til det er sluttinntrykket for ufriskt.

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 28.10.14. Dark brown. Beige head. Not quite inviting aroma dark malt and hops. Also a hint of anis. Similar and sweet taste. Caramel malt sweetness and hops not in harmony. Unfresh aftertaste

Inbreak (4721) - 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.

Deep amber with off white head - A good sweet caramel malt aroma - Good malt body with caramle and some hints of spice - Good malt finish that is on the sweet side - This was nice

Finn (6291) - 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 (4181) - 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
