Bottle from local grocery store, Norway. Pours brown with a generous beige head that stays out the session. Nice aroma of sweet caramel, nuts and some roasted malts. Medium to light mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet with caramel notes, nuts, hints of coffee. Pretty good for the low abv.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really dark brown ale with durable head and lacing. Aroma is really good, there is lots of dark chocolate, cocoa beans, some herbs and caramel. Taste has roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate and bitter herbs at the end. Excellent after taste, which really invites you to take another sip. But sadly this has quite thin body, with just a little higher ABV this would be awesome.

Brown, medium sized tan head. Nose is bready malts, some toastiness. Taste is similar to the nose, but with some roasty-nutty bitterness and acidity in the finish. Oily to watery mouthfeel, thin to medium body, fairly smooth carbonation. Very easy to drink.

Mørk farge med ettersmak av kaffe og sjokolade. Ved helling til glass gir den en god skumtopp. Gjennomsnittlig kullsyre
