Rune (10507) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2016
330ml bottle stored in my cellar for almost two years. Bought at Alko Kemi in May 2014. Shared at a drinking session with djoeye and Finn. A filmy layer over a deep red brown coloured body. Smell of almond, dried fruits and mid-sweet malts. Mixed taste of berry fruit, almond, toffee and molasses. Dry and roasted malty finish. Fine bodied. Decent sipper qualities (Tromsø 01.02.2016).

Finn (6011) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2016
Flaske 330ml spandert av Rune. Delt med ham og djoeye i WCveien 1 Feb 15. Nydelig dyprød farge. Filmskum. Aroma av mandler. Overdose. Smaken lett syrlig. God - men lite variasjon.

djoeye (3074) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2016
Look; deep clear ruby with the film. Aroma; fruity almonds and bishop Wember’s wooden preach. Taste; wooden roasted malts, dark syrup, hops make the bitter touch - finishes with the balance. Palate; solid, patience. Overall; yeah, not bad. It was evening. [Btl@Session w Rune&Finn, BB.now]

Bottle. Pours a dark brown, small head. Aroma is caramel, dried fruit, some salty liquorice. Taste follows along the same lines, more salty liquorice, less caramel and dark fruit. Alright.
