(33 cl bottle in wine glass.) One of my first favorite craft beers which since then has declined a bit on the list since my taste buds has improved (or gotten worse..?). It has a full sweet chocolate character on both nose and mouth. Which is why I liked it in the first place. A bit too sweet and watery though for my evolved liking, hehe. But definitely a great brew.

Das wohl grandioseste Bier des letzten Monats mit all den komplexen Noten, die so wunderbar ausgewogen zusammengefügt wurden. Wärmend und dennoch frisch knackig. Dazu leicht im Malz, Früchten, einer entsprechenden Hopfigkeit und etwas Nuss. Toll.

Bottle from trade with HenrikO, many thanks. The beer has got a dark brown colour with a small, steady head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of hops and bread. Taste of roasted hops, barley, malt, woods, mild fruits, flowers and herbs. Hoppy-malty finish. Great beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of chocolate, raisins and some earthy esters. Nice deep reddish brown color with a fluffy tan head. Sweet malty chocolate up front. Notes of dark fruit float in between. Bitterness comes in sharply balancing sweetness nicely. Spicy bitterness with notes of pepper, smoke, and spicy fruit. Finish is slightly dry with a reprise of bitterness and some alcohol burn. Definitely warms you up.

From a can, it’s a clear reddish brown, big froth tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, barley and oats? Flavor is moderately sweet, hints of toffee and fruit. Smooth, creamy and drinkable with a mildly bitter finish. This gets added to the shopping list.

Mørk brun, nesten sort med to fingre høyt lys brunt skum. Lukter papp, trevirke, kakaopulver, kaffe og noe melkesjokolade. Smaker toast, sjokolade og kakao også her, samt skarp alkohol. Middels lang alkohol i avslutning.
