3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Olympen, happy eating and drinking with my nephews. Opaque, near-black body, tiny beige head to the rim of the glass. Prominent aroma of peaty malts, ashy dry. Chocolate malts underscored by a peaty backbone. Dry rounded on the swallow. Harmonious and far from heavy to drink (Oslo, 26.09.2011).
