3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle, 12.5 % abv, with a cork and a wire cradle and a golden neck. Ordered through Vinmonopolet bestillingsutvalget. Shared with Finn, Stefan and Elisabeth. Pours a huge creamy beige head over a rustic brown coloured body. Brown malty aroma, sweet. Herbal hops and dried fruits together with dark chocolate malts to the taste profile with sweet fruits to the ending. Soapy in the mouth. Very much on the sweety side, but alright as a slow sipper (session at Finns 07.08.2014).

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at PIB, pours a deep dark mahogany / near-black with a large beige head. Nose brings out complex champagne yeast, bubblegum and dark fruits. Flavour is extremely complex, with lush dark fruits, complex yeasts, some candied sugar and bubblegum. This is elegant and highly refined. Wonderful stuff.

Flaske 750ml fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Fellesinnkjøp med Rune. Delt med ham, Snegurochka og TheCellarer på Nerstranda 7 Aug 14. Champagne-kork som åpner med et lite smell. Ekstrem mørkebrun. Høyt - litt farget skum som varer noen minutter. Svakt fruktig aroma. Smaken er syrlig frukt. Mest stikkelsbær. Litt plagsom kullsyre.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (75cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Murky, rust brown colour. Half-inch beige head that settles as a thin film and a thick ring, very little lacing. Aroma of cherries, horse blanket, oxidized wine - quite hard to pinpoint in fact. Full body, lively carbonation. Nicely balanced sweet/acidic taste of concentrated fruit (cherries, figs), alcohol, wood, mild bitterness. Long, vinous fruity-alcoholic aftertaste.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very beautiful colour, dark red and slightly brown. A head is big and beige. A beautiful beer. The aroma is sophisticated and tastefull, lots of sweet fruits that is mix of fresh and dried, also dark fruits, sherry, port wine, some spices, wood, overcooked bananas and refreshning mandarin. Very complex aroma that is strongly sweet. Taste is fruitful but dark and dried fruits are dominant that is different than aroma, raisins, prune, some bananas, not too sweet, also spices and some wood. Alcohol % can be noticed but it’s not bothering, even the % should be there with the powerfull habitus. Almost full bodied, nice refreshning carbonation, pleasant to drink. Now I have high-quality monster in the glass that correlates to hansom appearance. Powerfull, rich and fruitfull beer, the great experience.
