3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice dark red with a one finger white head. Nose is almost like a belgian beer, some prunes, dark fruits, chocolate, caramel, and maybe some slight alcohol. Nice mouthfeel, good carbonation. On the tongue i get hit by some belgian notes again. Dark fruits, chocolate, some roastyness and a slight alcohol kick (its 10% ABV after all). A good beer, but nothing to rave about.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33l bottle. This is a crystal clear deep dark amber-ruby one with a disappointingly fainting quickly sidesticking little bubbly beige top. On the nose it’s dark-malty sweet with caramel and frosting sugar mainly. Also light vanilla and woody-sour tones. Not the normal kind of woody sourness, but a sweet sourness with, yeah, honey. Honey and traces of alcohol. Not horrible at all. The taste has that pilsner-like Ringnes sweetness that I remember from my youth. Impressive, but it’s actually not that hard to notice. Some honey traces with a soft malty note. Light salty finish with traces of licorice. Well, I have to say that I had hoped for something a bit, eh, more than this honestly, but by all mean, not a bad brew from the giant Ringnes. If anything, the alcohol is really well hidden! 02.11.2012
