larsga (7219) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2008 Biggish yellowish beige head goes coarse, then shrinks. Hazy red-brown barely translucent body. Floral roasty earthy caramelly peas aroma, incredibly harmonic. Dry and sweetish roasty earthy floral resiny caramel taste, equally harmonic, with fruity honeyish notes. Slightly astringent, yet oily mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Powerful flavour (amazingly powerful for the alcohol). Dry roasty resiny aftertaste with pea notes. A little miracle, given how light this beer is. (0.5l bottle, Centra, Oslo. Rated twice.)

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 25, 2008
Tasted 25/02/2008. 500ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits. Copper, rather than ruby red. Diminishing off-white head. Clear. Subdued caramel and milk chocolate, all slightly stale, on the nose. More of that in the mouth with a pleasant drying roastiness. Carbonation bite. Medium bitterness. A little flourish of herbal/piney hop flavour on the palate, which surprised me nicely. Caramel lingers too. Becoming a little moreish as I get into it, for sure. Better with a little less carbonation and if it were fresher. Goodish.
