Thanks to ThirstyBird for this beer. Dark red-brown colour. Nose is fruity. The beer is smooth, fruity. Not too sweet but something viscous. The aftertaste is medium, not too deep and not really complex.
--> nice beer, but not outstanding. --> 10/12/10/12

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske kjøpt på vinmonopolet. Klar rødbrunt farge. Tynn hvit skumring. Medium til lavt karbonet. Kjøpte denne kun fordi jeg ikke hadde smakt den før. Hadde ingen forventninger å innfri, og den blir nok hellet ikke kjøpt inn på nytt. Smaker malt, sjokolade, karamell, lønnesirup, hint av humle i ettersmaken. En helt grei øl, men ikke fryktelig spennende akkurat

Pours a beatiful clear dark amber color with a well lasting white head with a hint of orange color in it. The nose has a dry basement-like aroma with some cream, rapeseed and caramel notes. Taste is sweet with some nutty notes and a mildly dry but long finish. Carbonation is average and the palate feel rich and thick. Very nice!

Nose is toffee, bready malts, dark fruit tang, dates, fruit loaf.

Bottled, 500ml from Glencoe Village Co-Op, Highlands, Scotland. Copper with ruby hue and off white head. Sweet malts dominate initially, reasonably clean in character although there is an odd plastic perfumey note going on. Sweetish toffee, caramel, some leafy hop but little bitterness. Reasonable enough.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It pours a more or less clear body, dark amber in color and with a minimal sized off-white head. There’s a lot of dried fruits in the aroma, with toffee and a faint note of paint remover.Some bitterness in the flavor, far from as much as I get the impression there would be judging from the description, but at least enough to prevent it from being cloying. There’s some higher alcohol or paint remover in the mouth as well, a bit more than in the aroma actually, and especially in the end. There’s toffee sweetness, some nuts and dried fruits as well. It’s full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated. The finish is quite dry, even though the sweetness can be felt, guess the alcohol and bitterness does their bit of palate cleaning. Overall, I would like this much better without the paint remover touch, as it’s a quite pleasant one if you manage to ignore that. 131119

Flaske fra polet: fint skum som ender opp med litt kniplinger. Mild og behagelig aroma av malt og julekrydder med litt humle. God munnfølelse og en ganske sammensatt men lett smak. Allikevel er hovedinntrykket litt intetsigende. Tror ikke jeg kjøper denne igjen.
