3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep brown hazy body with a bronze taint and a big, off-white head that vanishes rather quickly. Nose is sweet, buttery caramel, malt extract, toffee and that unmistakable "Midtfyn aroma". Pretty nice, though. Taste is very, very sweet and laden with expressive, massive tones of caramel - the home-made version where you take butter, sugar and a bit of cream and simmer it in a pan until it’s brown liquid ("knekk" in Norwegian). Some raisins and booze lurk underneath the surface too, along with traces of wood and the toffee version of caramel. This is too sweet for me, but could make as a nice dessert-like sipper I guess.
