Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2013
Pours a dark copper colour with a small white head. Aroma of chocolate and caramel. This continues in the taste together with some nuts and a light burnt taste. A bit too sweet in the aftertaste, could have wished for some more balance. Light body with a slick mouthfeel. This is a okey low-alcohol christmasbeer, but a bit too sweet for me.

Not much aroma or taste, but could be useful when thirsty. [short review due to it coming from my backlog]

Pours amber brown with a tiny off white head. Diffuse aromas of grain and nuts. Not offensive, grain, nuts, sugar, but too dilute. Tastes more sweet than flavorful.

visionthing (2624) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2012
50cl can. Pours clear copper with an off-white head. Caramelly aroma with malt and hints of fruits and some lightly roasty notes. Sweet and caramelly with just a light bitterness in the finish. To sweet and flavourless for my taste.

TyggaBrown (383) - NORWAY - NOV 11, 2012
500 ml can. 4,6%. Pretty nice. Malty and hoppy at the same time. Chocolate and dried fruites. Lively and fresh.

Can. Dark red, almost no head. Light malty aroma, a little taste of caramel/sugar, some bitterness to finish it, but really boring.

Maria (10133) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2012
Curtesy of Yngwie. It’s dark copper with a creamy head and notes ofcandy sugar, rotting fruit and baking yeast. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, candy sugar, nuts and thankfully better than the aroma. The finish is slightly dry.

esp0r (1921) - NORWAY - JAN 15, 2012
Can at home, not all that enjoyment
Dark copper, big tanned head. Smells of caramel and malts. Body is medium malty with a bit too much sweetness, soon accompanied by some metallic aftertaste.... not nice. Not much bitterness to call home about eigther

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2012
Amber colour, off-white head. Aroma and taste is mostly malts, hardly any bitterness. Not bad, but not very interesting either. (Can)

altonbrownd (3756) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2011
Tall can in Oslo. Brown body with short head. Nose of malts and sweet. Taste is roasty and a bit sour. Overall okay but doesn’t stand out. Merry Christmas.
