3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, danke Günther. Sweet cherrylike aroma with christmassy spicy notes, wooden and light metallic spruce notes following as it warms - not entirely harmonic. Cloudy red brown, low head. Sour cherry entry, vineous oak notes, caramel, berries, vanilla, pipe tobacco, herbal finish.
Fullbodied, sweet body, lightly carbonated, almost sticky.
Quite interesting, starts a bit muddled, but flavors mesh after it warms up and breathes a bit - in the end it is almost a full fruity red wine.

Aroma is rather malty with some woody notes. Flavour is rather malty with strong herbal tones and peppery notes. Like a doppelbock with spices and chili added. Interesting.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared during the Grand Tasting at the RBNG-event at Fredrik 3.’s Hall. Tiny layer at the top of a dark brown coloured body. Dark malty sweetness on the nose, herbal dry. Taste of dried fruits like raisin, dark malts and some spices. Not enough roastiness to the ending to keep all the sweetness at bay. Full bodied. Nice in small doses (Fredriksten festning, Halden 15.02.2014).
