3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hazy brown pour. Slim tan foamy head. Sour brown fruit. Cigarettes. Prunes. Hemp. Burlap. Bark. Brown sugar - but more sour, dry and smoky than sweet. Less complicated than other Haand beers but nice and solid.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, traded with Palme, many thanks! Dark brown-ruby with a medium head. Aroma is initially some soy sauce, then caramel and licorice, some milk chocolate. Hints of wet earth, forest fruit and coffee. Interesting though a bit tame. Rather dry taste with a light to medium, malty-hoppy bitterness. A fruity-coffee-chocolate aftertaste. Nice, velvety carbonation. A bit too dry for my liking given the aroma profile.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Naboen, Bergen. Pours an unclear brown colour with a small beige creamy head. Aroma of dried fruit, leather, chocolate, some coffee and some nice roasted tones. Some of the same stuff in the flavour but is more malty with wood and nuts. Balanced and nice. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. An incredibly balanced and easy-drinking dark Belgian ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pour is a deep mahogany with some yeast cloudiness. Dense creamy head that disappeared pretty quickly leaving a little lacing. Aromas are quite sweet and nutty with hints of caramel, almonds, toffee and some roasted barley. Also a little alcohol. Flavours are initially also quite sweet with caramel and roasted malt. Plenty of hops on the finish. Mouth feel is pretty well spot on. Well balanced beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy, dark amber body with a medium sized, fully lasting (at least when helped by my trappist chalice), off-white head. Excellent lacing. Nice aroma with fruity hoppiness: citric notes, mainly grapefruit. Also spices, caramel and a lightly toasted touch. The taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter, with a medium bitter finish. Flavours are caramel, dark fruits and pleasantly warming alcohol. Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth texture and a wonderful aftertaste that has a fairly long duration. Nøgne Ø has done it again!

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown 0.5L bottle 6% , dark brown foggy body , tan film.
Chocolate malts to the nose, some hops, eggs, hints of yeast.
Surprisingly mild taste, carefully roasted chocolate malts, caramel notes, floury modest bitterness under it.
Seems fruity on palate, don’t know which fruit, mealy, alright body, suitable carbonation.
Aftertaste lingers a bit, dark sweet chocolate, malts, sweet fruity grains. Nice indeed.
May be go well along with deserts, confectionery, cakes, or just as a nice drink instead of bock or porter.
