Scopey (9033) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Keg at Six Degrees North. It pours clear deep brown with a decent light tan head. The nose is toasty brown, earth, wood, caramel, pepper and dried fruits. The taste is crisp, bitter-sweet, toasty brown bread, dark fruits, raisin, caramel and fruit cake with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Has a great drinkability to it. Smooth and well balanced.

Bottle shared at 5K tasting. It pours deep red-amber with a small beige head. The nose is toasty, brown bread, raisin and candied peel. The taste is toasted brown bread, earth, toffee, orange, candied peel and a touch of sherbet with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. OK bitter, but far from exciting.

A scottish 80/- as I have never tasted it before, intensive malt character from a number of malts, Ottis Pale, Chocolate, Amber, roasted barley and wheat. A mouthfull of maltiness with a slight hoppy aftertaste. Very Nice winterbeer!

Holmen1 (3544) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2014
Flaske, hentet fra dypet av Fridtjofen, og delt på RBD-samlingen hos Asle Bjørn: flott skum. Aroma av mørke malter, skokrem og gjær. I tillegg er der noe kjemikalieaktig i smaken. Som sur kaffe som har blitt stående lenge på trakteren? En særpreget bitter, for å si det diplomatisk. "Interesting" ville kanskje en høflig engelskmann sagt.
