3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light Brown with a red hue, Little head, little lacing. Roasty aroma with some berry sweetness and cranberry. Taste is sour, some roasted malt and sour/bitter cranberry taste. Palate is a bit thin for the style and more carbonated than i would liike. Overall I liked the sour taste but everything else was average.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts with some coffee and wood. Taste is little malty with a acidic bite from cranberries. Little sweetness and berry-like fruitiness. The acidity and fruity taste is very subtle and natural, very refreshing and peculiar. Soft carbonation, medium mouthfeel. Overall, definitely interesting offering but a bit underattenuated in aromas and flavors.

Pours a dark brown, slightly transparent colour with an off-white head. Rich aroma of malts, chocolate and roasted coffee. Flavour of toasted malts, coffee, chocolate and stinging cranberries. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel with a mouth-drying, rough finish because of the cranberries. Interesting but something is a bit off.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours deep dark red with a low head. Aroma is quite foul with some cranberry. Flavor is sour malts and cranberries. Tastes like beer that’s gone bad, but it’s quite decent in a weird way. One is still enough for me.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
200ml, tap, served lightly chilled at Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri. Very dark body supplied by ruby-brown highlights. Tiny head blanketing the glass. Dominantly dark malty aroma. Unusual taste profile of tart berries, fruits and sweet malt that works quite well together. Dry finish. Feels rather thin on the swallow. (Oslo, 05.01.2012).
