2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
250ml bottle, trade with djoeye. Disappearing beige layer to an amber coloured body. Rather rich aromas of wet bread, syrup and dark honey. Sweet and tart flavours of honey, red berries, and caramel malts. Drying finish. Medium bodied. Sherry likeness. Different, but not that great (Tromsø 21.03.2014).

The aroma is quite nice of honey and caramel. The taste however is domiated by honey. Unbalaned.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Ambery golden colour, small white head. Aroma is honey, sweet malts, wood and some spices along with some rubbery notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, metallic, some raisins and mild vegetably notes. Quite much similar taste to many Eastern European 1-2 litre PET bottles of malt liquor... Congrats to the two good breweries achieving this kind of beer with more expensive ingredients...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Apricot-cream-coloured head, diminishes fast, leaves about no trace on the hazy deep amber body.
Scents of rich sweet malts, malt syrup, fermented honey, lingon-, cranberry, oily red wine, herbs, spices.
Tastes fruity malts, lingon- and cranberries, red wine, sour grass, xylitol (birch syrup).
Alco to palate, sour feel, modest carbonation. Wine feel at the end, dark fruits, malt, dark syrup. Overall almost as a glass of red wine, but made of beer ingredients.
For pilsener lovers, this drink is a little off the topic. Served in wine glass together with cheese, grapes and fruit, it may entertain you.
