4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(50 cl bottle) Copper colour, slightly hazy, with a light brown, rocky head. Aroma is very spicy and hop-influenced (herbs, pines, a bit of grapefruit), but also with a strong malty base full of character, biscuity, toasted, nutty, woody. Taste is medium bitter, and lightly sweet. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation, pleasant texture. Great aftertaste, long finish. Stands out compared to other bottled bitters I have had, probably because it is bottle conditioned (and generously hopped). What a difference! Des not seem super-fancy, but very well-crafted and - most important - absolutely delicious!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fruits, raisins as the aroma. Nice pour, decent drinking and lacing. But the taste is a bit undefined and muddled. Nicely bitter with a decent tang and some length this differs a bit in the middle form what I might have expected. Better on draft than in the bottle I have in my opinion.

Rødbrun i fargen med et lite hvit skum, skummet la seg raskt som en tynn ring. Aroma av malt, sitrus og hint av karamell. Smaken følger aroma, men avsluttningen blir noe besk.
