Bottled. Hazy nut brown, small head. Rich sweaty pear and grapefruit aroma. Mid-sweet and medium bodied with clean rounded mouthfeel. Gently roasty but richly hoppy. Marked bitter finish. Not so mild perhaps, but pretty darn good.

Draft at Paradiso Dupont. Cloudy brown color, massive tan ice cream cone head. Aroma of spiced caramel and butterscotch. Taste of Christmas fruitcake, but in a good way.

yngwie (16424) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle, at Patricks. It’s an unclear brown beer topped by an off-white head. Some cellar and chocolate in the aroma, quite malty, with some hops, but they are a bit anonymous. Well balanced aroma though. The flavor has a nice chocolate touch, malty sugar and a balancing bitterness. Full body. Bitter finish with chocolate. I enjoyed drinking it, but it’s definately not a big beer in any way, and obviously a bit aged. 100213

Rune (10928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2010
330ml bottle shared with KnutAlbert. Has got a Nøgne Ø mark on the label. Ruby-brown body, slightly hazy. A few bubbles on the surface. Aroma of shy, dry malts. Rounded taste of roasted caramel added by spiced fruits wrapped up in a bittersweet ending. Smooth and rather refreshing (Håndverkerstuene, Oslo 19.03.2010).
