tfredvik (1505) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Hazy medium amber body with no head, this one looks more or less still. Sweet and quite strong aroma of sweet caramel, dark dried fruits, brown sugar, liquorice and alcohol. Strong flavour of raisins and other variants of dried fruits, caramel, liquorice and alcohol in a vinous sherry-like way, with some faint notes of pine in the back. The taste is moderate plus sweet and the long-lasting finish is moderate bitter. Full-bodied, oily to syrupy texture. A mild and gentle US barley wine or a heavy hoppy UK one, I’m not sure. I think I’ll go for mild US.
[75 cl bottle, batch #500, shared at home with Svensenga Smak & Behag, enjoyed 9 months after brewing, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2014
750ml bottle. Courtesy of Finn. Thanks! Dark brown-reddish hazy body. No head or lacing. Roses, dark fruit, mead, barley, cherry and sweet plum aroma. Plum, wine, raisin, rum. Alcohol is perceptible. Reminds me of Finnish strong beer. Astringent finish. Too sweet and too much alcohol.(Sampled 18.06.14@Rating Session)

Beer enyoed from 200 ml glasses. Amber in color with a very thin beige head and low to none carbonation. Aroma is malt,sweetness,alcohol,dark dried fruits and a bit oak and wood. Tastes a bit warming due to high ABV + sweet and fruity with a malty and bitter finish. Very nice beer in small amounts or as a dessert.
