2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown pour with little to no head. Weak aroma of leather, dark chocolate, some herbs/spices and malty sweetness. Mixture of a stout and a brown ale. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Getting some dishwasher-notes here, which is not my favourite...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber to brown body, with a large, creamy, light-brown head with ok lifetime and good lacing capabilities. Moderate aroma with roasted notes, almost a smokey feel with a faint touch of broth, in addition to vague herby notes. The moderate bitter finish also feels rather herby, and actually not that pleasant. Quite strong flavours, now the herbs are more up front, also fruits, faint smoke and yeasty notes that leads to a moderate dry finish. Light to medium body, dry texture but still quite smooth on the palate, medium carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A clear, brown beer with a dense, off-white head. It’s sugary on the rather weak nose. Prunes and some chocolate and coffee as well. The flavor has some dried fruits and sugar, with some bitterness chiming in towards the end. Thin to medium body. A boring one that won’t impress or scare anyone. 101126

Bottle from Fenaknoken in Oslo.
Very drinkable with roasted malt, caramel and malt. There was something in the taste which was not easy to define. Good beer for a modest 4.5%.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with a slight foam/creamy head On the nose a beautiful roasted malt, coffee and maybe some licorice? The taste follows the nose, with even more of the roast flavour. It´s not very rich body, but a good lenght and well-balanced. It´s 4.5%, for this alcoholvolume this is some of the better beers I have had in this style. BUT; if a guinness is said to be a stout, this is not an ale. If that makes sense. If not, I´m sorry!
