Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of KnutAlbert. Pours a clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Sweet caramel and overripe fruits in the nose - and what appears like British hops. Solid body - very solid - lots of caramel - a little ashy, some licorice and again a twist of overripe fruit. Quite some alcohol in the finish. 100511

berlinoise2go (666) - NORWAY - APR 25, 2011
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Storo), Oslo. Clear, reddish golden colour. Finger-thick light beige head, decent retention, settles as a thin ring. Aroma is fairly closed; needs quite a warming-up to reveal a nice, woody and sweet sherry-like aroma with toffee, dried fruit (raisins) and alcohol. Medium body, soft/average carbonation. Taste is subtle/restrained, but well-balanced with mild acidity and bitterness on a sweet malty base. Aftertaste is relatively dry and woody. OK brew, but had expected a more powerful aroma.

Rune (9355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 17, 2011
It’s still winter with a lot of snow in the extreme north where I live, so a warming winter beer seems just appropriate on a Saturday eve. 330ml bottle, bb.31.09.15, bought at Vinmonopolet Oslo City. Pours a cloudy, apricot coloured body topped by firm amount of beige, foam that stays well and leaves fragile lacing at the glassware. Smell of sweet malts and dried fruits. Plums and raisin in flavour together with earthy malts followed by a ending containing lighter notes of yeasty fruitiness along with alcohol warmth. Well bodied, but aroma and flavour feels rather subdued (Tromsø, 16.04.2011).

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 14, 2011
Medium beige head. Lovely deep reddish amber body with carbonation. Sugary raisiny caramelly aroma with earthy fruity notes. Dry-sweet earthy roasty papery taste with caramelly raisiny notes. Mid-to-full body. Dry-sweet soy sauce and raisins aftertaste with earthy spicy buttery notes. Very nice, and quite unusual. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly.)

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 4, 2011
Flaske 0,33l - gave fra Rune. Takker! Gyldenbrun / amber. Høyt svakt farget skum som starter høyt men flater ut i løpet av et par minutter. Forsiktig maltaroma med fruktige undertoner. God. Smaken litt sherryaktig men alkoholen slår inn etterhvert og overtar. Tørr fruktig ettersmak. Litt uvariert - men en god "winter warmer". Dette burde vi ha mer av på våre breddegrader.
