Short light grey head. Clear dark amber color. Very nice light roasted malt aroma and taste. The bitterness is also well balanced against a medium body. djoeye (5076) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2016
Beige top, near black body, red-mahogany edges though.
Aroma; dark raisins, prunes, malted candies, kvass, dark sweet bread, berryish grass, vanilla, WOW! Taste; black chocolate, coffee, dry sweet liquorice, dryish prunes, an almond, some grass n peels - leading to a slightly dry finish, dark malts and notes of hops. Nice in the mouth.
Well brewed. Bottle seems to be better than can, I don’t know why. [33cl.btl 4.5% BB.23.09.2016]
