3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
18.09.2013, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Nice slightly brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is kind of neutral, dark malts, hops, grass, coffee, licorice, alcohol. Taste is dark malts, alcohol, raw licorice, grass, hops, pine needles, hay, coffee, burnt caramel, rubber. Nice longlasting bitterness. As a Williams Bros. beer it’s pretty nice, but basicly it’s pretty boring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smallish beige head. Nearly opaque black body goes deep dark red
at edges. Earthy chocolatey cardamom aroma with caramelly soy
sauce notes. Dry-sweet earthy cardamom and chocolate taste with
soy sauce and roasty notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, soft,
smooth mouthfeel. Dry salty roasty cardamom and earth aftertaste
with nougat and resin notes. Nice, drinkable, but perhaps a bit
too salty. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly, Strømmen Storsenter.)

330ml bottle at home. Nice to have something with a bit of flavour after 5 unexceptional blonde/bitter variations. Pours near black with thin, long-lasting tan head. Big coffee aromas, dark stone fruits, dark chocolate, and pine. Hop bitterness come through well on the taste, balancing chocolatey sweetness. Smooth texture. Good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske fra polet: fint skum som forsvinner for fort men etterlater en tynn gardin. Aroma av mørkrøstet kaffe som seg hør og bør i en stout, men også et fint innslag av humle. Smaken likedan, og den fine karboneringen gir den en smooth munnfylde. Ingen stor palett av smaker, bare en middels smaksdybde. Not at all rich, but with a high drinkability.
