Big 3/4L bottle: Fawn dense head, unclear red-brown dark body, some rims inside my mug. Too big bottle and too big cap.

Tongue gets much of the same, dark sweet malts, chocolate, mocca-coffee, hints of nuts, a little almond dipped in tar.

Flaske 0,75l spandert av Rune og delt med flere under treff på Nerstranda 9 Apr 14. Svart. Litt brunskjær. Pent tett skum. Teppelacing. Aromaen har et lett sjokoladepreg. Smaken er sammensatt av sjokolade & litt kaffe. Utmerket øl - og veldig god i forhold til styrken. En utmerket mild - rett og slett.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy of inbreak. A clear, reddish dark brown beer topped by a small, dense, off-white to beige head. The aroma has quite a lot of coffee and chocolate, there’s roasted malts and some dried fruits as well. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Quite dry, with the same coffee and chocolate found in the aroma. Lower levels of dried fruits. Not much hoppy bitterness. Long roasted finish. A really pleasant one, easy drinkable and tasteful, well worth a revisit. 140418
