Foffern (1226) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle at home. The colour is deep amber with a small, off-white head that fades fast. Sweet aroma of caramel, leather, oak, alcohol and hops in the background. Sweet flavour as well with more sweet caramel, leather, oak and a strange cigarette and cardboard ending. Has a slick and silky mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A sweet and interesting ale, but the flavour feels a bit unbalanced. Maybe over top.

.25l bottele from Alko Arkadia Pours couldy orange/copper with low head. Aroma is fruits, caramel, malts, dark fruits. Complex. Flavor is alcohol, dried fruits, caramel, red berries, dark fruits, plums, some bitternes in the end. Well balanced beer, but somehow a bit thinner flavor than in 2nd edition.

TET (1646) - FINLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle #04297, brewed 20.12.2011, bbe 20.12.2016. A reddish brown beer with a very weak and blond head. The nose is complex, unique adn interesting. Richness of malts, sweet fruits and caramell, melon, marshmellow, strawberries, riped bananas. Taste is quite sweet but it’s not bothering, caramel malts, melon, lots of unspecified fruits, some drying bitterness. Full bodied, low carbonation, not heavy. Sake yeast has made the work and the result is a unique fruitmix. Interesting and succesfully, fruitful and sweet beer.

Intense, sweet (caramel) aroma. Clear, light brown with no head. Sweet (umami?) taste that lingers, then turns lightly bitter. Medium body, thin feel, average carbonation, slightly bitter, long finish. This beer must be savored and enjoyed over a long period of time.
