yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 28, 2009
Bottle. It pours a clear, copper body under a small off-white head. Bready, quite fruity nose. Mostly dried fruits like prunes. Something reminiscent of oxidation, and a hint of toffee as well. The flavor is on the malty side, with bread and toffee, some oxidation, a hint of hazelnuts, some fruity hops and a little bitterness. Bready, bitter finish. Medium body. Far from impressing, and rather boring too. (090422)

28.02.2009, 0,5l Bottle. Dark brown colour, firm off-white head. Aroma is malt and hops. Both malt and hops are a little neutral. Nice but not perfect.

500 ml bottle. Dark copper colour. Clear. Small off-white head that clings to the glass. Medicinal hops and a distinct cacao powder aroma. Light-bodied, but with nice nutty flavours.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2008
500 ml bottle. Thin offwhite head with big bubbles. Clear reddish brown color. Fairly sweet caramel aroma with fruity and mineralic notes. A whiff of dusty/hayish hops. Taste is light sweet, has a modest malt base, with some earthy bittering hops and a note of plummy fruitiness and cellar. Sourish, quite watered down mouthfeel. Short, mild bitter ending.

Sigmund (5319) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2008
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Copper coloured beer, decent off-white head. The aroma has a nice blend of malts and fruity hops, notes of prunes, toffee and some chocolate. The flavour has earthy notes, some malts and fruit, hints of caramel, but the finish is "dusty" and dry with noticeable hops. A very nice bitter.

larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2008
Biggish beige lasting head. Deep dark red-brown body with light carbonation. Fruity roasty earthy aroma with notes of dried plums, caramel, and chocolate. Dry-sweet earthy dried plums taste with roasty malty chocolate notes. Dry metallic chocolate aftertaste kind of jars with the fruitiness. It’s not bad, but I didn’t enjoy it much. (0.5l bottle, Centra, Oslo.)
