yngwie (13923) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 11, 2010
Bottle, 75cl corked, at RBNAG -09. It’s an unclear, orange beer with an off-white head. Nice hops in the aroma, with a sugary sweetish, meaty maltyness. Herbs and flowers blend in. White sugar sweetness in the mouth, almost sticky. Full-bodied, and finishing with a nice bitterness and caramel. There’s herbs, caramel and a fine dose of hops in the initial flavor. A strange beer, but strange in a nice way. 091107

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2010
From bottle@RBNAG 2009 in Vatlandsvåg as Hof Korvatunturi Old Ale. One finger of beige, creamy head, quickly fading. Red colored body with an orange hue. Perfume and yeast up front, offset by a floral, minty, and maybe leafy hop scent. Taste has a restrained malt profile, biscuity and quite crisp. Also a distinct fruitiness, and some herb/spice tones. Alcohol is very well hidden. Healthy body. Finishes sweetish fruity with a fine dryness in the very ending. Beyond interesting, very good actually.

Sigmund (5259) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2009
Bottle, as Hof Korvatunturi Old Ale, RBNAG 2009 in Vatlandsvåg. Cloudy orange colour, low head. Strange aroma, some Belgian yeast, hard to classify. Fairly sweet flavour, some fruit, hints of tobacco, some mint and tea.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2009
(Bottled) Hazy dark ruby with floating yeast and a small, firm and tanned head. Mild aroma of caramely malt, spices, and hints of dried fruit. Flavor is berryish-caramely with sweetish malt, gingery spiciness, a touch of ashiness, and some gluey-homebrewish feel. Alcohol comes up when warm. Medium body, slightly foamy carbonation. A sweet and spicy winter warmer - OK, but not very sophisticated.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2009
It is beautiful, dark, red amber with a lot of sediment and a creamy head. The aroma is spicy and perfumed fruity and yeasty. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, spice, yeast and perfumed fruit. It is OK, but the perfumed note is a bit too much.

Ungstrup (29608) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2009

diabel (1608) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2009
Bottle Hazy amber to brown body. Lightly brown, creamy head. Complex aroma, mainly of caramel with hints of grapes, wood, acid, ... Very well balanced aroma. Moderately bitter, moderately sweet flavour with a soury note. Again a good balance and complexity with a nicely warm mouthfeel. Great beer. Bit rochefort-like: a strong focus on caramel.
