Flaske fra Gulating Stavanger, delt med skibsrederen omboed på Fridtjofen etter vellykket manøver: brunsvart med fint skum som varer. Cremet munnfølelse og smak med mørke sjokolader, vanilje og litt kaffesyre. Behagelig drikke på alle måter.

Botella. Clear deep dark brown colour with a big nice creamy light brown head leaving a good lacing. Very pleasant soft aroma of roasted malt and chocolate along with some coffee and bit dark fruit. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is soft and filling with roasted malt, chocolate, hops and coffee. Dry pleasant well lasting roasty malty chocolate coffee finish. Nice indeed.
