Bottle at RBESG Grand Tasting 05. Dark brown, no head. Sweet, fairly flat, but warming. Not terribly dramatic, but leafy, dark sugar, dry notes are in here. Good enough, considering this type of strong sweetness does not raise my bedsheets in the morning.

I really like this one. Strange, since it’s a Ringnes...It’s sweet and heavy enough to justify the name. And there are enough spicy aromas to make my stomach happy. And they are not overdoing it either.

(on bottle, thanx Sigmund) Cola-colored with no head. Weak sent of caramels to the nose. Norweigans seems to like it, but being in the class of my fav. style, I really tried to get the best of this. All I got was a burnt malt taste and nothing more. With a volume of 9,9% there could be more layers and most definently, more storage time, to make it real good.

Quite different from most other norwegian beers, this dark beer is rich on taste, sweet and bitter at the same time, and absolutely one of my favorites.
