Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a deep coppery red-amber body with a small white head. Nose is caramel, red berries, hints of pepper and herbs. OK, but maybe a tad bit faint. Taste is caramel, grains, hints of burnt sugar and grass. Slightly watery palate but still OK and quite quaffable. Pretty smooth, without ever being impressive in any way.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle. This is a deep dark bronze colored one with a medium sized really bubbly off-white top. On the nose it’s get a dry woody kinda fruity aroma with a little bit of dry caramel and a general nice sweetness. Smells absolutely decent this. It’s surprisingly bitter in the taste. Lots of dry bitterness and also a good amount of roastiness. Wood as well, like chewing on a coffee table in remember we had when it was younger. A floral bitterness rounds it off. It has some flavor this, but it’s not necessary something in have to hunt down for a second go. 29.04.2013
