Palme (3365) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2013
0.5l bottle. This is a deep dark bronze colored one with a medium sized really bubbly off-white top. On the nose itís get a dry woody kinda fruity aroma with a little bit of dry caramel and a general nice sweetness. Smells absolutely decent this. Itís 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 itís not necessary something in have to hunt down for a second go. 29.04.2013
