2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet malty nose, deep amber, tiny toffee head. Flavour is a subtle malt, sweet, and bitter at the same time. Very light for the style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 50 cl, at Papsø’s. Clear dark red brown with a small off white head. Nose of bread, dark fruit, sweet malt. Taste is sweet much the same, very clean, but a little uninspiring. Very light bitter finish. Softly carbonated.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle - 500ml. Dark brown body with instant-fading beige bubbly head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with sweet and roasty hints. Taste is quite thin and finish barely detectable. Very disappointing Strong Beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Looks and smells like a glass of coke. No head. Not much malt or hops going on, just demerara sugar. Didn’t really like this.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,5 l bottle as a gift.
Poured deep ruby-brown with a foamy tan-light beige head that diminishes quickly, disappeares fully. Aroma of sourish yeast, rosted grains and mild coffee, caramel and molasses, light dried fruits. Caramell and molasses, toasted-roasted grains in the flavor, some lurking plum and raisins. Sweet fruity aftertaste with a rosted bit.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - like a glass of cola, a red chink but mostly dark brown with no head.
Nose - more brown sugar than chocolate.
Taste - more brown sugar again.
Palate - thin for the alcohol and basically it tastes like a very badly made Belgian. Cloying and then thin.
Overall - does not reflect the style at all but I suppose it’s solid in some ways.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske på RB samling hjemme (takk til Petro): opp gjennom et beige skum stiger en bæraktig aroma. Fin munnfylde og den bæraktige smaken (solbær/bjørnebær) er så absolutt til stede. Delikat ettersmak med litt ekstra sødme mot slutten. Smaker kanskje mer som en dobbelbock enn en baltisk porter. God uansett.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark brown in colour, thin beige head. The Aroma was of caramel, slightly roasty with some sweetness. The flavour was of caramel, some chocolate and roast. Chewy mouthfeel, medium-light body, medium carbonation. Finishes a little thin and quick.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This is a hair better than another 6.8%er from this brewer. Poured at a good temperature with a thick, foamy, frothy, fizzy head that rapidly settles down and a bit of lace. Color is a dark, clear ruby. Aroma is malt, wet grain, hint of roast and molasses. Flavor’s like nose, again like the other, quite sweet, but has the roast coming out a smidgen. Also again, happy to have some carbonic tang to balance, but it’s too fizzy, and barely any bitter. Body is like last time, though a tad better. Finish is likewise like flavor and the last, just a bit better, but not good enough to want another.
