Bottle, thx to Hans Panzer. It pours an unclear brown body under a dense, finger-thick off-white to beige head leaving lacings. The aroma has pine cones, resins, orange peel and some roasted notes. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, lasting for a good while, with lots of nice hoppy flavors like orange peel and green pine cones. It’s full-bodied, soft and semi-dry on the palate,

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from tap at Ølhallen, 170ml. Creamy fawn-coloured head reduced to a foamy layer. Devil-black body. Roasted dark malts to the nose joined by dark fruits. Mid-sweet dark malty taste, liquorice and black chocolate followed by leafy hops and malt bitterness to the ending. Rather easy to drink and to like (Tromsø 25.04.2014).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fra kran på Ølhallen 24 Apr 14. Første øl som ble solgt fra den nye 50-kraners tappeveggen. Svart. Pent, litt farget skum som stabiliserer seg veldig lavt med lav teppelacing. God sjokolade/lakrisaroma med litt metall i bakgrunnen. Smaken sammensatt av kaffe og lakris. Avbalansert og ikke påtrengende.
