On Guest Tap at Dukes Corner, Dundee, Scotland (02/06/12). Aroma is spicey with a chocolatey hint, very thick and slick oil like body with a dark black, colour and thin brown head. Interesting and deep taste; chocolatey coffee taste, oily thick intensive flavour. Quite a pleasure to sample this on tap, it’s a top Norweigan beer!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
25/05/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al Nøgne Ø Special Beer Festival. Bruna, densa, quasi impenetrabile, schiuma bianco-senape, molto persistente. Al naso malto, caramello, frutta secca, leggermente sporca forse. In bocca è ben bilanciata, dolce ma non troppo, non stucchevole, mi è piaciuta parecchio. Corpo medio-pieno, carbonazione corretta. Non male davvero.
