Bottle. Copper, small head. Good sweet licorice aroma. Quite sweet, hints of smoked malts, licorice, fruit. On the sweet side, but probably one of the most original beers around.

ferryman72 (12) - NORWAY - AUG 9, 2014
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.

Finn (4134) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2014
Flaske 0,25l fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Mørk rødbrun med et ok luftig skum som varer. God aroma av mørke plommer & bær. Smaken er søt frukt. Blir litt for søt - men OK. Sødmen må nok tilskrives alkoholen - for ellers merkes den ikke.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Murky red. Intense sweetness. Alcohol, fruit, cordial. Very complex, daring to go new ways. Pleasant drinking, while not my everyday tipple.
