500ml bottle via djoeye, shared with Finn. Solid beige, bubbly head. Deep mahogany coloured body. Rather subdued aroma of dark fruits and earthy malts. Sweet malty flavours, ash, earth and caramel. Roasted endnotes. Velvety mouthfeel. True to the style, more or less (Tromsø 05.03.2014).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle, bought at while back. Likely ordered by the bottle to my local Systembolaget. Seems to be available at three stores. BB April 2014, sampled on November 1, 2013.
Clear dark reddish brown color, big fluffy lasting tan head. Very subtle nose, light sweet, the faintest hints of smoke, a sprinkle of fruits - dark and dried, some notes of what is likely to be alcohol as well in the scent. Smells mellow, laid back, not bad at all but also doesn’t like to speak up or be noticed. Sweet, bread, grainy, light roasted, some alcohol, fruity taste. Thankfully the taste takes up way more room than the scent did! Hints of mineral, light tart, some Trocadero making its way through in the taste as well. Mineral, roasted, hints of coffee, soem charred notes in the aftertaste. However there comes the Trocadero in the aftertaste as well, what is that, like some sort of soft sweet/candy like estery chemical thing, unnatural flavor component. A bit like char coal and ashes mixed with pop, when trying for subtle but noticeable, but overdid the camp fire notes when the coal dropped into your pop glass. Rather full mouthfeel, some CO2 that sticks out, but not too much. Medium bitterness. Smell is way too laid back, taste do get through a whole lot more, but have some weird notes that I feel should not be there for my personal preference.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small offwhite head. Clear amber body with strong carbonation.
Earthy funky barnyard aroma lingonberry and oranges aroma.
Dry-sweetish, and faintly acidic, earthy funky barnyard taste
with cow dung and salty lingonberry notes. Mid-bodied. Mild,
soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy salty chemical lingonberry
aftertaste with herbal floral oranges notes. Wow. This is
pretty powerful stuff, flavour-wise. Must be brewed with
brett. (0.25l bottle, wine monopoly, web order.)

*Bottle from Systembolaget. Very dark brown. Lovely roasted malt flavour. Smoke, liquorice, a hint of salt. Balanced sweetness, very pleasant. I’d enjoy a barrel aged version, or perhaps a stonger edition.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Chestnut, cappuccino tan lace. Roasted sugar, liquorice and herbal hop aroma.
Sugar, malt roast, smoke, chocolate and licorice notes, light citric and herbal retronasal. Medium full body, sparkly light on the front of the palate, solid on the exit - the brew feels a lot like like a typical scandinavian spicy licorice sweet.
