2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml unlabelled bottle from brewery generously brought and shared by Rune @Rating Session 3.Jan.2012. Dark mahogany body with beige foamy head that diminishes and leaves a filmy layer on top. Sweet notes of prunes and dates, wet malt and tasting a bit sour. Based on other ratings and also comments during the rating, I suspect that this one might have been damaged.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Stopped regular rating 22nd Oct 2012 so this is one of my occasional ratings. Bottle at Olhallen, Tromso, Saturday 19th January 2013 in the company of Finn & Rune. Sweeter on the nose than the Nissefant, sweeter and maltier in the mouth it’s good. Smooth, soft and easy going beer. A7 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.5
