(Bottle (50cl) and from tap) I think I prefer it from tap, but the bottled version was also good. Tried i several times (from tap) before i found out that it was only 3,8%. It was a big suprise, full rich taste with such alcohol content. To bad it’s so expensive in Norway.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2009 500 ml bottle from Centra Colloseum, Oslo.
Fully diminshing tan head. Clear, dark brown colored body. Sweet smelling; dark bread and nutty malts. No hops included. Sugar-sweet and mellow malt flavor. Notes of burnt sugar, sugar-diluted coffee and milk-chocolate. Still no hops, even not for balancing. Body is light plus. Mouthfeel is not that bad, a bit juicy. Brown sugar ending. Not for me, this one.
