3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2006 Bottle. Brown-red beer with dense, large, beige head. The yeast sediments gives it a hazy look, but it is no problem to pour it without the yeast if you like. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee/mocca and some floral notes. The taste has roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and a fruity hoppiness. The finish is as expected quite dry, and the bitterness stays for a while. My least favoured beer from Nøgne Ø, but a nice beer anyway. Goes well with walnuts and pickled silver-onions.(050912) (Rerated 060725)
