3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep dark foxy red-amber beer pours viscously to medium, rather thick russet-brown head. Sweet, burnt malts, and a minty, fresh hoparoma, perfumy; dark chocolate; Bitter, hoppy, metallic, resin, roasted. Again this soapy, perfumy streak. More pine in the finish, with bitter chocolate, crème brulée. Warming up, roasty nuts, again metallic tainted; Long lasting bitterness, Always a tad metallic over the roastiness. Well-bodied, very slick to oily. Bit strange stout, as if something else was envisaged first.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(65 cl bottle from Bryggens Ølbar; No visible BBD) Pours black with little tan head that quickly recedes to remain as film and lace. Decent regeneration. Aroma is roasted malt with notes of coffee, dark bread and a hint of alcohol. Quite full-bodied on the palate, softly carbonated with oily texture and a dark, protracted warming finish. Flavour has some sweetness but it’s balanced well by the roasted malt bitterness and the alcohol.
