TET (1761) - FINLAND - NOV 27, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 A dark brown beer with an almost medium and beige head. The nose is pleasant, strongly juniper with juniper berries, malts, liquirice, sweetness, pine needles and hint of smoke. The taste is also good, malts, roastiness, some ryebread and pine forest, wooden bitterness. The end is quite dry, thus lots of hops are used. Surprisingly, quite light to drink, medium bodied and smooth to drink. Succesfull and tastefull beer. Interesting and strong juniper touch, still great balance.

nilsas (1729) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2013
Et nydelig øl med en herlig krydret dyft av pepper og lakris. Lun og god smak med en ettersmak av lakris og malt. Et øl som ikke må være for kaldt. Godt øl som anbefales. Mørk nøttebrun farge nesten uten skum.

SlackerMads (1707) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Brown with off-white head. Aroma is sweet with a light sour cellulose thing to it. Otherwise notes of almonds, marzipan, malt, yeast, leather. Vinous. Taste is a bit watery at first but some alcohol sweetness kicks in. Notes of burnt caramel, plums, toffee, spices. Ends bitter. Interesting stuff that I need to try again.
