3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mahogany brown and small head but leaves some lacing as descending. Some roasted flavors coming to my nose with nuts and sweet chocolate. Taste has some rye bread type of flavor and sweet chocolate and nuts. Surprisingly good especially after having warmed up a little.

Bottle bought in Norway, pours a deep dark red-brown with a clingy white head, aromas of mocha, toasted caramel and pine vegetal hops. Nice balance of roasty sweetness and nuts with astringent hops, and hints of sultanas and treacle. Simple in its way, yet very pleasant.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Old rating rerated 07.06.2013, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, caramelmalts, nuts, toffee, grass, raisins, chocolate. Taste is slightly roasted sour-ish, caramelmalts, grass, nuts, burnt caramel, coffee, toast. Medium bitterness. Not bad for a Norwegian everyday brown ale, but there’s still room for making it a lot better.
