larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2009
Small beige head. Deep dark brown body with light carbonation. Faint sugary aroma. Dryish-sweet papery roasty taste with fruity notes. Very mild and smooth mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dryish roasty resiny aftertaste with wooden notes. Very low on taste, but not bad. Perhaps a little too sweet and not sufficiently bitter. (0.25l cask, The Blue Blazer, Edinburgh.)
