3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 14.08.16, from Alko, 20131108) The beer poured brown. quite clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, caramel, treacle and hops. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, caramel, sweetness, hint of hops and low bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, sweet and bitter. The strong malty body is a sign for aging potential and aging may tune down the sweetness which was a bit too intense now.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle. Bb 14.06.16. Copper color, thin white head. Caramel, raisins, sticky boozy notes in aroma. Raisins, malt, sweet bready notes in flavor. Quite boozy taste as well. Way too much alcohol coming through to be enjoyable. As an English strong ale this is a disappointment for sure.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Clear copper body with a fine, creamy beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, brown sugar and dry fruit with just a little hint of alcohol. Flavor of sweet malt, but not as sweet as expected from aroma, in fine balance with the bitterness and alcohol. Also caramel, candy sugar, dry fruit with a bitterness that becomes more obvious in the aftertaste. Long aftertaste with more bitterness and warming alcohol. It a fine beer, not perfect but Lervig is definitively into something here.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Dark copper color. Small size, white head, stays. Smells woody and sour. Tastes like Belle Vue Kriek mixed with some shitty macro. And I’m totally aware that it’s not a good thing to say to any beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Deep amber body with a small, quickly disappearing off-white head. Nose is caramel, raisins, booze and a bit of bread yeast, which I find kinda strange. Taste is strong notes of caramel, with some tones of burnt sugar, roasted malts, alcohol and hints of raisins. Smooth mouthfeel. Burnt sugar again in the aftertaste, flanked by some boozy notes. Well integrated flavor profile, if not too overtly exciting all in all. A nice winter warmer, and a pretty drinkable - and likable - beer. Best one from Lervig that I’ve had so far.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33 l bottle from Alko. Slightly hazy mahogany brown color. Aromas of raisins, caramel and toffee. Bittersweet flavor with raisins, figs and dark caramel. Oily palate with stingy sharp alcohol. Medium to full body. Alcohol sharpness is dominating and it is hard to enjoy this beer.
