Juleøltest: Nå er vi endelig kommet oss til topp tre, og nederst på pallen finner vi denne godbiten: Brun med lite skum. Flott aroma av tørket frukt og malt. Smaker meget godt, med masse tørket frukt, krydder, mild kaffe og lettbrent malt. God bitterhet.

ej (695) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2013
Pours a clear brown color with a creamy looking, medium sized, tanned head. Aroma is sweet malty with notes of milk chocolate, caramel and nuts. Rich malty taste without being overly sweet. Light roasted malts, chocolate and toffee. Well rounded with a nice bitter touch towards and into the aftertaste. Close to full bodied with medium to soft carbonation.

bob_w (293) - new york, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2013
sour, smoke, oxidation. estery. opaque brown/black color, with think tan head, which settles down, but totally holds on. very complex aroma. sour right away, with a slight roast note which melds into a smoke note, then back to sour and bitterness. bitterness comes out in the finish and aftertaste. medium-thin body. complex in aroma and in flavor.
