3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blind tasting at Papsoes place, another great session, thanks Henrik! Beer #3: Pours hazy orange with a fully diminished white head. Orange and grapefruit aroma, light woody dry note. Flavour is sweet and light acidic. Sweet caramel malt and a mild liqourice hops note lurking through. Goes into a dry and light woody finish. A bit too sweet for my liking.

Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet and totally dominated by over ripe fruit. The flavor is sweet wtih strong notes of fresh fruit as well as lots of hops, somewhat of a hop soup, leading to a dry bitter finish. The alcohol burns slightly in the top of the throat.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2007 Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear reddish brown, very brief head. Strong soapy perfumy hop aroma. fairly swee up front, boldly malty and full bodied. Salty with dense cookie malt character and a wealth of fruit and alcohol. Lingering salty bitterness. Potent and flavourful. Rather tasty, but perhaps not very refined.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Standard amber colour. Fairly malty, alcoholic aroma. Fairly strong malty taste, with light caramel and a hint of alcohol. Didn’t get any pomegranate. Nor anything else distinguishing...really dull for a big-ass beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fruity pomegranate aroma - along with underlying malt. Copper amber red color with beige head. Starts with malt, passes to fruit (but the malt overpowers the fruit), which is hard to assign to a particular variety - could be a mix - but the bottle (and aroma) said pomegranate. There is enough hop to come through at the end, but that malt is longlasting. Not sticky sweet like many high alcohol ales. This is something to sip rather than quaff.
