Bottle at Gunnar tasting at the CBC Clerkenwell. Cloudy dark brown, tan head. Nose is very malty, ripe fruit, banana, caramel, chocolate, spicy. Taste is unexpectedly later than the strong aromas. Malty, light ripe fruit, little banana, caramel. Holmen2 (4287) - NORWAY - JAN 18, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Dark ruby. Beige head. Pure and refreshing aroma of toffee, dark chocolate and hops. Taste of dark malts, dark chocolate and dates balanced with bitterness, perhaps with a slight hint of citrus and pine. An excellent yule tide beer! Round mouthfeel.

Large brown foamy head with strange solvent flavor. Dark almost black body. Heavy root taste dominating light chocolate. Fits well with garlic croutons in a soup.

Bottle, 33cl. In the aroma I smell roast malt and caramel.
The beer is brown and has quite a big head.
In the taste I have hazelnuts and hop bitterness. Sweet and bitter are in balance. Medium carbonated.
