2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a typical ESB. I found some burn notes in both the aroma and flavor. Not unpleasant but... It also has some straw and bread in the aroma, did not get much from the hops. The flavor is fruity. But it has a metal note in the end.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small offwhite coarse head quickly disappears. Deep chestnut brown body. Sugary caramel and dried fruit notes aroma, very strong, with chocolate and orange notes. Lots of aroma, but there’s something about the orange/chocolate mix that doesn’t appeal to me. Sweet, complex taste of port, dried fruit, caramel, and roasty malts. Dry chocolatey, smoky aftertaste with tobaccoish notes. Taste is also powerful, and sharpish, but nice. A good beer, and a bit different. (0.5l bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger.)
