3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (50cl). Finger-thick off-white, semi-sticky head, fairly good retention. Murky amber colour. Aroma of malt, oak, caramel, ripe fruit (banana, pear, yellow apple), yeast, marzipan. Full body, quite flat carbonation. Sweet malty-fruity taste, balanced by a slowly growing bitterness, and a mild acidity.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2011 Medium sweetness, some sourness, tastes of caramel. Sweetness to the finish and aroma as well. You can notice the alcohol both in aroma and taste. All in all, too sweet to get a better rating from me. Colour is amber, there is some nice lacing, white to brown foam. Moderate to low carbonation. (50 cl bottle)

Hazy dark marhogny with a small beige head. Aroma: Barley, bread, sugar, plum, raisin, yeast, maybe a little chocolate, alc. Taste: sweet, burning alc,, but ok balanced by the bitterness. A little too sweet, but still a good and complex beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is great beer, but to be honest I really think some of the barleys from Norway are a lot better. This one really smells of alcohol, more than I’ve experienced before, as well as plums, dark grapes, heavy bitterness, great level of sweetness, and caramel, cocoa and coffee. Great, and well balanced, but not as full bodied and balanced as the best ones.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma; A very sweet, malt nose with caramell, mocca, a hint of nuts maybe?
Flavours; More yeasty flavours in the mouth, with some yeast, leather going over to caramell, sweet coffee and brown sugar.
Summary; Not an overwhelming BW, and that´s what I like about it. You can have a whole bottle without totally feeling up my stomach.
