750ml bottle from Tanakaya Liquor Store, Tokyo. Cloudy dark reddish brown, big beige foamy head. Hoppy aroma. Barley resin hop flavour. Slightly sickly sweet alcohol aftertaste. A bit too strong for me.

Palme (3240) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2014
On tap @ Borefts 2013. A beautiful looking everlasting fluffy foam in the middle of the glass here. Really foamy, deigen in color and lacing the glass with some serious blondes. Smells barreled and double IPA-ish. A strong and powerful malt base in this. Loaded with malty caramel sweetness, a little bit of honey and a whole lot of fresh brutal hops. Yeah, it smells really good this, and the taste is not bad either. As suspected a really strong malty backbone. Thick and oily in the mouth with a soft carbonation level. Really syrupy and tasty. I get a little bit of grassy hops in the finish. Lots of flavor. Fruity sweet aftertaste. 28.09.2013
