500 ml bottle - thanks for the ankle roll clint!! dark brown pour with foamy tan head; aromas of sweet roasted malts with some chocolate; texture is thin and comes off as a very light porter; quite a bit of sweetness in the front with the roast taking a back sweet; yummy

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle, unfiltered and unpasteurised, brygg 914, bought at Fenaknoken in Oslo. Solid, off-white foam stand that left spotty lacing on the glass. Nice, deep ruby-brown body. Firm malty aroma, tolerable sweet. Medium roasted and mid-sweet dark malts in flavour with rounded bitterness in the aftermath. Fine made brew, with ingredients that work well together Pleasant on the swallow (hotel room, 18.08.2009).

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark brown with a big light brown fizzy head, some lacing. Aroma is fairly sour, some berrylike sourness, roasted and burnt notes, dry cocoa. Flavour is roasted, cocoa, coffee, a bit ashy, a bit sour. Too thin, to uneventful, but easy drinkin’ I guess.
