3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, dark mahogny colored beer with a thin, beige, head. No lacing on the glass.
Nose: This smell! Well, it’s not a nice one... Like an old worn shoe. Nuts, coffee grain, leather, milk and roasted malt. I’m getting more and better nose as the beer warms up. Maybe I shold have this beer warmer?
Taste: Roasted malt, Caramel, dark syrup, vanilla, brown sugar and molasses. I must say I liked the taste a lot more than the nose!
Mouthfeel: Medium body. Light, fizzy, carbonation. Sweet ending.

Fra fat på Nydalen Bryggeri og Spiseri i hyggelig selskap av Halvor. Svart. Lavt, lett farget skum. Lett whiskyaroma. Smaken det samme. Blir bare en whisky-light hele veien. Svakt syrlig etter hvert med en tørr avslutning

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty peaty scent with an unflattering sour quality to it. Very nice looking reddish brown color with a small cream colored cap of foam. The taste is malty as well with tons of caramel and a balancing hop bite at the end. Slight booze in the aftertaste. So-so palate, overall solid not spectacular.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle. I guess I'm not a fan. I think there are much better examples of the style so that's why the poor rating for one of my favorite breweries. Pours out a dark red and makes a very foamy but fizzy head. Reminds me of Coca Cola but not in a good way. Smells like fish oil. Tastes like fish oil. Hope it's good for me.
