3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
From double Craftissimo day, drank at home before Jocelyn's birthday. Pours a hazy chestnut-brown, sudsy thin white head with big bubbles, spotty legs. Smells slightly like spicy vinegar and soy sauce, malt, wood, florals, cinnamon, toffee, seaweed. Aroma is a touch too salty. Taste is more balanced - more heavily bitter, spicy sweet malt, grassy herb, light yeast finish. Body is medium with some slickness, bitter and herbal, more flat/watery finish. Not bad, a big and flavourful brown ale with some Belgian-ish touches - bitter deep taste is the best bit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Coop, Trysil. Pours dirty brown with faint tints of red. The aroma is not pleasant, vague smells of mensroom. In spite of the aroma, I carry on. The taste is lucklily different and better, roasted malts, bitter notes, chocolate. There’s nor much sweetness though, making it quite a rustic brown ale. The low alcohol pulls down the average even more.
