Cunningham (4028) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2013

Appearance: Clear amber color with a small white tan head that leaves some lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, malty, yeast and some spices.
Palate: Medium + body. Mild round sweetness and a moderate bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Fruity, malty and some spices.
Overall impression: A bit unusual Belgian strong ale. A little bit to sweet for my likings. But still a nice ale.
Personal stats: Bottle from Vinmonopolet Oslo - Rosenkrantz’ gate, Norway

8%, the same people who make Huvila. Around 6 euro from Alko. Enjoying my last night in Stockholm, listening to Opera outside at a festival & having a bottle from Finland. Classy night! Beautiful amber pour, spicy & fruity Belgian yeast aroma. The taste is bang on, nutty, malty, biscuit with the fruity Belgian yeast contributing spice & a touch of fruit. Really nice stuff but then again sunset, opera, palaces are sure to contribute to me loving this beer!

BillHick420 (400) - North Dakota, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2013
Pours amber with white head. Alcohol and malt nose. Thick mouthfeel, low carbonation, some caramel. Meh. Palate what offputting for me.

Foffern (1065) - Bodø, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2013
Bottle at home. Has a clear mahogny colour and a small off-white head that fades fast. Aroma of caramel, oak, syrup, some smoke, forest floor and spices. The flavour has more smoke and is nicely balanced. Has a very slick and smooth mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A good and well-balanced Belgian style ale with a nordic touch. Nice!

Simonsen (544) - NORWAY - AUG 10, 2013
Flaske fra Vinmonopolet. Mørk kobberfarget, litt skumrand, lite karbonert. Gjær, jord, løv, tre, brent sukker, knekk, malt. Ingen slager hos meg. En ganske besk smak av jord og brent sukker. Savner mer fruktighet i en belgian strong-ale

TyggaBrown (376) - NORWAY - AUG 6, 2013
Finish microbrew. Quite exciting just to find it and buy it, but it’s just so boring. Everything about it, actually. Not too excited about neither taste or aroma, but generally it’s ok to drink. Nice colour and body.

Moebbels (245) - FINLAND - JUL 27, 2013
Clear amber body with a well lasting white head. Nose is sour with notes of yeast, spices and berries. The taste is sweet and sour with a cookie note and leaves a long aftertaste. Carbonation is lively and palate surprisingly light. The alcohol is well hidden but is given away by the warmth it leaves.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 20.07.2013, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Small bubbly mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet fruity, caramel malts, raspberry candy, red berries, grass, sugar. Taste is slightly sweet, caramel malts, grass, grain, red berries, harsh hay. Medium bitterness, slightly watery harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2013
Pours a hazy amber colour with a small white head. Caramel, spruce and leaves in the aroma. Taste is much the same. Good body. Reminds more of a barley wine than an abbey thoug.
