2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Old rating rerated 03.10.2014, 0,5l bottle (as Stenøl) @ home:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, caramel malts, hay, minerals, nuts, grass, alcohol, "knekk", hints of chocolate. Taste is kind of harsh and slightly metallic, alcohol, harsh grass, metal tank, burnt caramel, hay, weeds. Longlasting bitterness, harsh metallic mouthfeel. Meh! Maybe a few years of aging could save this one at least a little bit...

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear bronze-hued dark amber body with a huge creamy, long-lasting off-white head. Nice. Aroma is caramel, raisins, dark fruits, hints of vanilla, bread crust and toffee. Taste is raisins, alcohol, bitter herbs, dark fruits, nuts and hints of toffee, burnt toast and caramel in the back. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Surprisingly nice "American Winter Warmer"; a bit sharp around the edges but definitely drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fin rødbrun farge med et beige skum. Aroma av røstet malt, karamell, friskt og gjær. Smaken følger aroma, mer smak enn i aroma. Her er det krydder, tørket frukt, moden frukt og alkohol. Lang fin ettersmak

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thisted 5 Stenøl: Brewery puts a 800°C stone into the wort, making a long mature process.
Beige yellowish top, copper red clear body.
Plums, toffee and grass in aroma.
Tastes caramel, butter, ginger, grains.
Palate sweet. Finishes sweet, plum became a sweet prune.
Maybe the brew would benefit from removing that additional sugar.
