Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2013
0.65l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. It wants out of the bottle this! Nothing extremely, but it clearly does not like parting with it’s cap. It pours a heavy cloudy deep dark amber body. It almost looks like you have added cream in this, and it has a massive fluffy kinda dirty off-white top. On the nose I get a soft cellary sourness. Some earthy potatoes with traces of malts. It’s not extreme, but present. Slightly above average on the carbonation with a thin oily mouthfeel. The taste is much the same as the aroma - just more present. Earthy potatoes, some caramel, something slightly acidic sour in the background and traces of rutabaga and yeast. A bit strange in many ways. 09.01.2012

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a dark slightly hazy orange body with a massive creamy off-white head. Aroma is sour-ish cellar must tones, red berries, biscuits and hints of...wool. Strange. Taste is earthy potato-like grass tones, mostly. Medium body and carbonation. A bit lifeless and one-dimensional, and clearly past consumption peak. Will re-rate if I have the chance.

Bomber poured a clear golden amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and citrus. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, citrus and light earthiness with a crisp lingering citrus finish.

Khoury’s bottle. I’m no steam beer expert but this was tasty. A nice blend of sweeter caramel malts and some bright, green hops. Lasting bitterness. Very well done.

A dark orange-brown color. Good head. This is pretty good. Grainy with a dry but light enough finish. I found this quite drinkable, even more so as you go along. One of the best JJ beers yet! Probably my favorite Steam beer truly.
