3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle, batch 386, from Vinmonopolet, Langnes. Light brownish hue with good duration over a deep, dark brown body. Comprehensive beer in both aroma and flavour. Very well balanced smell of just malts and hops. Taste of dark fruits and dark, chocolate malts with underlying spicy acidity. Light hints of yeast. Ends up with lingering hop bitterness. Ashy dryness in texture. Well bodied. I bought a few more bottles to be cellared, should be interesting to re-taste them before Oct.2013 (Tromsø, 07.03.2009).

Small but persistent dark-creamcoloured head over beautiful red-brown beer. Bit sourish nose, superimposed upon dark, melanoidin-y malts and some buttery notes. Rosemary aroma. Rather dry, woody flavour, spicy, cacaopowder, and dried juniper or cypress branches. Medium bodied, bit watery but not too much. Little qua aftertaste. Nice, dry brown; spicy and light.

Pours a reddish brown colour with a white foamy head, mainly on the edges. Aroma of mild sour fruits, nuts and some citrus. Flavour of citrus, dried fruits, toasted malts and toffee.
