tfredvik (1866) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2012
Dark amber body, close to brown, with a puny little light-light-brown head that doesnt lace the glass at all. The aroma is much more interesting: its roasted, caramel, raisin, port wine, spices, liquorice and faint hints of tobacco. The taste is heavy sweet with just a light plus bitterness in the long-lasting finish. Plenty of flavours that follow the aroma, but with additional brown sugar, cough syrup and slightly overripe dark fruits. The sweet port wine notes are close to sherry. Pleasant mouthfeel. An interesting and complex ale, but maybe a bit unfocused and noisy, its like the brewers have tried to fit too much into this little bottle.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 11 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Clear orangey brown with a small, creamy off-white head leaving laces. Oxidized aroma, plenty of prunes and overripe plums. Quite full-bodied, toffee, maple syrup and a whiff of licorice. Some warming alcohol in the finish. Nice and pleasant. 310112

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2012
Very dark brown colour, mahogany. Small off-white head. Rich in aroma, theres wood and overripe fruits. Taste is also powerful, some sweetness and quite bitter towards the end. I much prefer this to most barley wines Ive tasted due to the subdued sweetness. (Bottle)

Myk munnflelse. Smaken er sammensatt: Ntter & frukt. St bitter ettersmak. Rett og slett et godt dessert-/kosel.

Medium beige head. Barely translucent clear dark brown body with light carbonation. Earthy salty licorice aroma with wooden soy sauce notes. Dry-sweet honey and linoleum taste with chocolatey resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, rounded mouthfeel. Dryish linoleum, chocolatey and honey aftertaste with long lingering resiny, salty cardamom notes. Long, lingering, hops, honey, and cocoa finish. Amazingly drinkable, and well balanced.
