3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 24 Nov 2013) Reddish brown colour with brief head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, dark fruit and toasty malt. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, red fruit, toffee and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty beer in excellent balance. Nice one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at White Horse. It pours clear deep brown with a tiny white head. The nose is brown bread, earth, toast and wood. The taste is smooth, wood, earth, rather savoury, light toast, brown bread and light smoke with a dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. No real depth and touch thin for my liking. Fairly inoffensive.

Bottle. Aroma is rather weak, with caramel, slight smoke, clove and hops. Black colour, small white head, quickly disappearing. Light sweetness, lightly bitter. Light body, thin watery texture, flat carbonation. A bit boring.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown btl abv 4.2, purchased at Kilpishalli Kilpisjärvi Finland.
Very nice look, with its moderate vanilla-white head on a red-wine-coloured body, towards red-brown. Beautiful scents of roasted malts plus dark chocolate.
Tastes roasted malts, sweet licorice, flourish feel, some bitter too.
Good in the mouth with its well balanced but distinct bitterness.
Much lacing inside the mug. At the end chocolate, roasted malts.
Overall very tasty and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very dark brown with some reddish colour, a head is almost medium and beige. Aroma is succesfully and quite complex, roastiness, chocolate, some toffee, wood, earthy aroma. Taste is quit esimilat than aroma, slightly roasted, wood, balanced and low toffeeish sweetness, a little bit of fruits and herbs. Medium- bodied, smooth carbonation, easy to enjoy. The positive surprise with the same earthy nunacees that could be found from many Haandbryggeriet’s beers. Complex and tastefull beer.

God og forfriskende Ale. Passe bitterhet og beskhet, og en deilig forfriskende smak. God tørstedrikke og koseøl.
