3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle thanks to djoeye for sharing. Beige head to a mahogany coloured body. Moderate taste of smoked malts. The smoky part is mingled with grainy chocolate in a flavour profile that also brings nuts and hints of dark fruits towards the aftertaste. Medium bodied. Smooth in the mouth. Pleasing (Tromsø 20.03.2015).

Bottle. Pours hazy very dark brown with airy tan head. Clear aroma of oats and malt, with fruity and estery touches. Sweetish, malty flavour, with notes of fruit, caramel and oats. Dusty overtones, especially towards the finish. Bitter aftertaste with subtle, sweetish touches. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium brown head. Opaque black body. Earthy roasty chocolatey
aroma with syrupy notes. Dry-sweet earthy mealy roasty taste
with fruity caramelized sugar notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy
mouthfeel, kind of flat. Dryish mealy sooty caramelized sugar
aftertaste with earthy mealy fruity notes. It’s really quite
nice in a surprising sort of way. An unusual beer. (0.5l
bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)
