Flaske 500ml fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Langnes. Dyp dyp amber. Pent høyt skum som daler veldig sakte. Kniplingslacing. Beskjeden maltaroma. Smaken malt & karamell. Passet fint til kjøttmat.

ManVsBeer (6461) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2015
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Dark copper-brown with a small creamy off-white head. Has some roasted malts but has a heavy sweetness is attached to this. Quite interesting and doesn’t feel its strength although is clearly full-bodied.

Beer5000 (5316) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 25, 2015
500 ml bottle. Clear, dark brown body with a big, but fast disappearing beige head. Aroma has light roasted, dark malt, liquorice and hint of alcohol. Flavor is medium sweet, light roasted dark malt, liquorice and hint of dry fruit. Medium body, close to be a bit weak, roasted malt in aftertaste that ends up with a faint hint of peat. Drinkable, but rather one-dimensional and not particular elegant.

Foffern (1494) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 11, 2015
Bottle at home. Has a clear, deep reddish brown with a big, beige head. Aroma of caramel, liquorice, roasted malt, cocoa and some herbs. The flavor is filled with caramel, dark berries, leather, heather honey and some brown sugar and coffee. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A sweet and a little complex strong ale. Nice.

Arve_Christian (4135) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 8, 2015
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order (bu). Dark amber color, good foam. Medium aroma intensity; malt, dried fruits, fruitiness, some roasted aromas and light hops. Medium/full body & medium/high complexity. Some immediate sweetness, balances well; the body of it makes it god even though I might have preferred it a little dryer. Very enjoyable

ClubGonzo (4900) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby-hued clear brown body with a medium bubbly off-white head. Nose is caramel, toffee, maple syrup, nuts and hints of vanilla pudding; all a bit faint. Taste is caramel, mild chocolate, grains, toffee and hints of biscuits, caramel and bitter herbs. Medium to light body, soft carbonation. Pretty mediocre ESA, all in all. Too soft carbonation, too little complexity, low bitterness/sweetness integration. Not bad, but very, very far from fantastic.

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2015
(bottle) Clear, mahogany colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Dark and toasted malty aroma with notes of caramel, bready accents and a dark and dried fruity touch. Sweet flavour, medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Dark and mildly toasted malt character with nutty notes, bread, caramel/Blockmalz and fruit confit; sweet and mildly toast-malty finish with loads of caramel, traces of chocolate and mildly fruity notes and a late arriving bitterness. 25.I.15

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2015
500ml bottle picked up at Vinmonopolet Langnes. Clear rosewood coloured body. Decent off-white head with good retention and solid lacing. Good looking, indeed. Slightly smoked malty nose, mid-sweet dark malts as well. Similar malt driven taste of roasted grainy malts, earth and ash. Medium bodied. A likable all-malty beer, a little unvaried perhaps (Tromsø 07.02.2015).

pivnizub (9521) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle: Almost clear, deep ruby-amber coloured, presumably lively carbonation, causing a stable off-White foamy layer; Aroma of sweet raisins and caramel with a port-vinous touch, chocolate is detectable as well; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied, quite soft; drier lingering chocolatey and dark-malty finish. Nice brew...
