2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Almost clear, dark amber with a thin tan head. Aroma is light roasted malt, mild mocha and a little hint of coffee. Flavor is light roasted malt, a bit fruity, some caramel, sweet aftertaste and not much bitter. Body is thin and make it a bit watery and unbalanced. OK I guess but not very exiting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Snitt (330ml), draught at the brewpub. Nice appearance with a deep reddish tint to clear, dark brown body. Topped by beige patches. Smell of sweet malts, slightly roasted. Careful roasted malts in flavour with late arrival of sappy, dark fruits. Short bitter tail. Rather watered texture. Needs more body. Quite likeable, though, but their steamer was much better (Trondheim, 12.03.2009)
