larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
Medium offwhite head. Clear deep dark brown body. Earthy caramel and toffee aroma with spicy linoleum notes. Sweet-dryish earthy caramelly taste with spicy toffee and marzipan notes. Full-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish caramelly soy sauce and toffee aftertaste with chocolate, wax, and earth notes. Nice, drinkable, smooth. Perhaps a bit dense and sweet. Could use some more bitterness. (0.75l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen. 2011 vintage.)

Unde (550) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Amber colour with delicate head which sadly dissolves quickly. Aroma has nuts, toffee, chocolate and some wooden notes. Taste is sweet with chocolate, toffee and dark wooden flavors and syrup. Full body with quite low carbonation. For a price tag of +40 € this beer doesn’t stand its ground.
