larsga (7220) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2012
Small beige head. Clear dark brown body. Syrupy tar and molasses aroma with roasty licorice notes. Sweet perfumy smoky spicy taste with musty vanilla notes. Full-bodied. Mild, flat, slightly hot mouthfeel. Dryish alcohol and vanilla aftertaste with smoky tarry lavender perfume notes. Too perfumy and sweet, but the base beer shines through and is still great. (0.15l sample at Haand 2012.)

Tap at CBF 2012. Claret brown, low offwhite head. Peated, fruity aroma, smoked makril - fatty, salt, a bit chocolate. I get the smoke, but I can’t guess where the salt comes from. Chocolate roast retronasal, salt on the palate.

On tap, Haand Festival 2012. Theregular version is one of my very favourites, the oak chips give an extra dryness and some vanilla. But I’m not convninced it is really an improvement.

ClubGonzo (5359) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration, cheers to Meilby the tapmeister! ;-) Deep nut brown body, small off-white head. Aroma is dark fruits, oak, cognac, booze, vanilla, hints of smoke and dark malts in the back. The smokiness seems very much subdued compared to the regular version. Taste is booze, heavy dry oak tones, smoke and cured ham. Hints of cognac and dark malts. Intensely oaked; in fact this may be the most wood-marked beer I’ve ever had. A fun experience, and another tasty beer from Nøgne Ø.

From tap @Haand ØlFestival ’12. A low lightly tanned head, covering a shady dark brown colored body. Initial aroma of wood and well roasted dark malts, followed by a scent of burnt caramel, something herb-like, and faint alcohol. Succulent, full, almost flat body. Taste is sweet and roasty. Vanilla tones, hint of oak, charcoal and dark dried fruits. Warming alcohol and roasty bitterness in the ending.
