Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2009
500 ml bottle. Mahogany with a ruby red hue. Medium-sized light beige fine-laced head that clings to the glass. Nutty aroma with a lot of chocolate. Very mellow aroma. Licorice flavours. Bready ye flavours, much reminiscent of kvass. Distinct hop bitterness that feels sharp and metallic initially, but blends into the soft flavours. A little watery in the finish. Interesting Christmas beer, and quite unlike any other I’ve had. In all it reminds of a kvass.

larsga (6816) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2008
Biggish light brown shiny head. Deep dark red translucent body. Fruity vanilla fudge aroma, mellow and harmonic. Dry roasty buttery vanilla fudge taste with fruity caramel notes. Mid-bodied. Dry fruity metallic roasty aftertaste. Fruityness clashes with the metal, and really spoils it for me. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2009 Clear dark burgundy with a medium beige head. Somewhat sweet aroma with roasted malt, choclate, hops and caramel notes. Flavour had plenty of roasted malt and chocolate and caramel notes. Finished sweet. Not bad.
