3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle share, thanks to Strokey, as ’Swannay Old Norway’, 8%. Clear dark orange, lightly sparkling, small foamy off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is piney, air freshener, floral astringent hops. Body is medium to light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is strong caramel, honey, astringent piney hops. For me it’s got too much of a sweet-yet-astringent vibe, but it’s OK I suppose.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drinking 330ml bottled. This is a great beer. Copper to deep red-amber colour, minimal head. Incredible aroma, strongly chocolate and caramel with smoked malt, slight hint of citrus and cucumber hiding behind. Mouthfeel adhesive and oily. Rich malty body, structured hops, alcoholic and slightly sweet aftertaste. Whole impression is extremely distinctive. Could pick this out of a lineup after smoking 20 marlboro reds and cleaning my teeth.
