2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle. Deep dark brown colour, thin beige head. The aroma is roasted, slightly sour, with some chocolate and berries. The flavour is a bit odd, roasted and sour, with notes of berries and vinegar, and an ashy finish. Interesting, but not very pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske 0,33l kjøpt fra Alko Muonio. Veldig mørk dyprød på farge. OK lysebrunt skum som flater nesten helt ut. Innbydende aroma av ristet malt med innslag av krydder & frukt. Smaken er sammensatt og variert. Gjennomgående syrlig men innslag av frukt & bær. Litt krydder. Ettersmaken varer og munner ut i en tørr fruktig & syrlig bitterhet. Lagret på eikefat? Mye sedimenter igjen på flaska.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very dark brown beer with weak and beige head. Aroma is weird, roasted, malts, some sweetness and unpleasant vegetables. Flavour is better than aroma, some roastiness, sweetness and spiciness, but again vegetabless can be found in the end. Balanced and nice to drink. Weird, unpure beer; I don’t try this again.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark clear brown ale with a thin moka head. A nice pleasant aroma of earthy ground cherries, volatile acids, veering on Duchesse de Bourgogne. In mouth, a bit lighter than expected with faint sweet malt, a bit of sourness, but overall a bit dull, lacks the intensity of Belgian Flemish sours. Bieropholie, BB April 2009.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark, a bit of a gusher. Liquorice, rye bread and spices in the nose.
Dry, almost oaky, playing with a malty base. Complex as well, there is sourness, sweetness and dryness here. A little warming. Prunes, mint, a little soot. Hard to classify, and that’s a compliment. Could ahve had a bit more body, perhaps, but its a very fine brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle; Murky brown colour with a huge but loose beige foamy head. Dusty and sourish toast-malty aroma with a tinge of caramel and dark berries. Sourish and minimal sweet flavour, medium bodied with a lively carbonated mouthfeel. A bit slim toast-malty and slightly berry-fruity taste; sourish and slightly bitter finish with fruity and roasty notes. Okay, but not that great. 16.XI.08
