Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Valkendorfsgate. This is one pricey beer, so expectations are rather high. Pours a pitch black body with a medium light brown head. Looks like a stout. Smell is, however, different: smokey leathery notes making way for ginger, pepper and herbal spiciness. Some fruit in there too, along with raisins and dark malts. Nice. Taste is very malty and deep, with some basement aromas accompanying fruity notes of sweet grapes and raisins. Complex, but with a light body and such a low ABV it’s really incredible. Solid brewing on this one. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to Chris.

Dark brown with a thin beige head. Interesting aroma. Lightly fruity, slight roast, a good amount of malt and some clear sweaty socks. Pleasant enough, despite the socks. Slight sourness in the mouth, some preserve fruit and caramel. Very slight aniseed in the finish that I really like. Typical Bøgedal, I’m not really sure what to make of it but I quite like it.
By the way, for what it’s worth, this was actually No. 192 and the label claims 7.4? Who knows with Bøgedal? Nightmare for the admins I’m sure, good fun for me though....
Bottle, 75cl corked. As #177, 5% ABV. It’s a dark reddish brown beer topped by a fingerthick beige head. The aroma has some licorice initially, then roasted malts take it’s place and get company by some hops. It’s full-bodied and quite dry on the palate, with flavors of roasted malts with a nice sourish touch, and a good hoppy bitterness to give balance. Roasted and hoppy bitterness in the finish. A nice beer that went well with the liverpaste. 091230 gunnfryd (15299) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2010

[As Bøgedal Nr. 0177, ABV 5.0%, brewed 22.5.2009.] Bottle (75cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Very dark opaque mahogany colour. Reluctant head that eventually becomes finger-thick, then reducing to a thin ring. Aroma of fruity licorice, chocolate, dough. Slick mouthfeel - would have guessed a higher ABV. Flat carbonation. Nicely balanced taste, quite sweet, but with acidic notes and hoppy dryness in the finish. OleR (4849) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2010
0.75 L corked botttle from Vinmonopolet, Briskeby, as Bøgedal Nr. 0177. A thin layer of big, tan bubbles, upon an opaque, as far as I can see, jet black body. Well pronounced, dark malt aroma; Mildly toasted with coffee notes and scents of tinned dark fruits. Also some burnt sugar and licorice. Medium sweet, coffee-ish malt flovor. Distinct fruitiness, plums and dried dark fruits. Very easy on the hops. Slick mouthfeel, healthy body. Soft malty, light fruity ending. Does not stand out, but well-crafted with good drinking abilities. Beer5000 (6736) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2010
750 ml bottle. Black body with a thin brown head. Aroma has a mild roastiness, malt an liquorices. Flavor is roasted malt, liquorices, caramel and dry fruit. This is well balanced and nice, not spectacular but sometimes a well crafted beer is what I need.
