HKdIPA (197) - HONG KONG - FEB 28, 2014
Dark amber pour very little carbonation. Very nice caramel sweet hoppy aroma. Taste is horrifically sweet and syrupy. Hoppy and vegetal flavors too but not in a pleasant way at all. Another miss from revelation cat.

visionthing (2582) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014
From a 33cl bottle shared by Gunnfryd at the bus on RBNG-14. Pours hazy orange to deep amber with a small off-white head. Quite hoppy aroma with cat piss, herbs, caramel and malt. Quite sweet, hoppy and caramely with a quite intense and lasting bitterness. Long bitter aftertaste with herbal notes. Decent, but a bit too sweet for my taste. (2014-02-15)

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
330ml bottle shared, txt to Gunnfryd. Muddy orange coloured body. Just a ring of bubbles at the top. Ripe orange on the nose. Ripe citrus, pumpkin and malty sweetness mixed together in a rather heavy drinking beverage. Noticeable sweet alcohol. Slow sipper qualities (Tour de Østfold, RBNG 15.02.2014).

Bottle 330ml @ Førtito Bar & Bowling, Sarpsborg
Pours hazy amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape, alcohol and dried fruits. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, sweet, fruity and bitter finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle, at 42. An unclear amber colored beer with a small, light beige head. Lots of hps on the nose, with citrus peel and pine cones. Lots of malts too, caramel and some brown sugar. The flavor is very bitter, with a fine malty sweetness in the back. Pine cones, citrus peel and sugar. Full body, soft carbonation and a certain warmth. Long finish. Overall, sure a nice one, although too sweet and warming. 140215

Theydon_Bois (7924) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle in my hotel room, Trastavere, from Brasserie 420 - 10/02/14. Very lightly hazed vibrant amber with a moderate beige covering that retains well. Nose is caramel malts, earthy hop notes, light booze strains, sticky pine resin, bubblegum, candied sugars, ripe tropicana. Taste comprises light mineral tones, candied oranage peel, caramac maltings, ripe grapefruit, sticky mango, pine, boozey ring. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, lightly cloying sticky feel with semi aggressive hop bitterness in the the finish. Very mellow for the ABV, drinkable indeed - it only took me 10 or so minutes to work through the bottle on my own before I went out for dinner, carries a boozey lick for sure but not 13% worth! Decent work.

lusikka (5948) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014

Pours a dark ruby copper colour with a small head. Aroma of fresh grass, herbal notes and citrus. Flavour of caramel, grassy bitterness, some caramel, tangy citrus and strong herbal notes. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes warming, floral and bitter. Heavy stuff.

laiti (5427) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
33 cl bottle @ home, ”sell by 08/2014”
Flavour has gluey notes, fruity hops, some candy cone and caramel. Flavour is hoppy and sweet with glue, fruity tones, some baking stuff and caramel. Also alcohol is present. Too much glue here.

tiong (3615) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
330ml bottle from Impexbeer

SELL BY 08/2014 - Pours dark amber orange with a tiny bubbly head. Aroma of juicy fruity hoppiness, yeast, toffee, fudge and caramely notes. Taste is sweet, malty and hoppy with loads of bitterness, sweet caramel, toffee and juicy notes. Finish is sweet, slightly boozy and malty and juicy with loads of hops, sweet caramel and yeasty toffee notes. A bit unbalanced, a tad too sweet and malty and the hoppiness is more subtle than expected.

olio (5855) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours copper color with a small head. Aroma is very hoppy as expected, resin, some exotic fruits and gooseberry bush. Flavor is also intense with hops, resin, some sweet caramel and some syrupy notes. Very sticky sweet palate, lingering bitter finish. Intense and nice.
