hlkanga (204) - - OCT 13, 2012
330 ml bottle. Pours dark brown to ruby red colour with a small tan head. Quite nice aroma of toasty malt, mild suryp and even a hint of chocolate. Taste is toasty and bready with a hint of caramel. A bit stingy carbonation, medium bodied and oily mouthfeel. Hayish and a bit hoppy finish. Quite decent vienna. Somehow this year it tasted better than last year. Lacks some hops though and the finish is bit harsh.

tlind2 (1159) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle. Clear brown color, tan head. Fairly sweet roasted malt flavor with a dry, metallic finish. Medium-light body, medium-high carbonation. Not a complete disaster, but slightly off-balance.

Flaske 0,33l spandert av og delt med Rune på seanse hjemme hos ham 12 Jan 12. Mørkebrun/amber. Masse kremaktig skum. Søt maltaroma. Smaken er også malt med innslag av frukt. Syrlig fruktig ettersmak som varer en stund.

Rune (8490) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2012
330ml bottle from Finn Arvid, shared with ratebeer-Finn. Frothy and bubbly beige head, spotty lace to the glass. Deep, dark brown body. Vague smell of chocolate malts, moderate roasted. Dark malts to the taste buds, including dark chocolate and nuts. Roasted bitterness to the finish. Accepted, in fact, rather nice in a Lapin Kulta context (session in Tromsø, 12.01.2012).
