2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flaske fra Polet, batch 752 (brygget 01/12). Fint beige skum som varer. Diskret aroma, og smaken er behagelig med sjokolade som hovedinntrykk, men med liten munnfølelse, noe vandig og kort ettersmak. Ikke blandt mine NØ-favoritter. Kanskje bedre til mat?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Kiellandsplass, Oslo. Pours hazy dark brown with a small, tan head. Mild malty aroma with some roasty notes, caramel, dark fruits and hints of fruits and Belgian yeast. Medium sweet with pleasant, but quite mild flavours. Some bitterness in the finish. Nothing wrong, but a bit anonymous. Pretty sure it would work well to food.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle@home. A bubbly one-finger tan head resting on a barely translucent, nut-brown colored body. Some Belgo-yeast in the aroma, along with a nice, lightly toasted caramellish malt scent. Notes of yeast, a cherry-like fruitiness and some spices. Taste is medium sweet and quite mellow with a note of candysugar. Proper bitterness. Suggestions of oak and Christmas spices. Healthy body. Dry and short fruity-malty finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, rated 2011-06-16, Batch 586 (1.2.2011)) Somewhat hazy dark brown with a small, but lasting head. Candi-sugary-malty nose also presents some vegetably-sewery notes. Flavor is a bit better, with malty - although slightly worty - sourish and dried-fruity notes. Not even close to a real Belgian beer, though. Almost medium body, quite carbonated, slightly stingy. Either a bad bottle, or bad attempt to brew a Belgian beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Blackish brown beer with a light head. The aroma is roasted with some chocolatyness, the flavour is much the same with a maltyness that goes with with the roasted and chocolate aspects of the beer. Overall a nice roasted beer, good bitterness at the finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Pours a dark chestnut Brun. Smell is gentle choc. Flavour us pretty subtle, pretty smooth, with correct mouth thickness. Slightly watery, but a pleasant aftertaste. A little like a Uk cask Porter. Nice, but lacks a little sharpness. Doesn’t taste the strength.
