Foffern (1927) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2017
On tap at Bådin Ølfestival, Bodø. Has a slightly hazy brown colour with a beige head. Aroma of oak, dried fruit, bread, forest floor and balsamico. The flavour is similar and sour with bread, forest floor and leather but also some cigarette. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. A fresh but a little strange ale.

Draft. Amber beer with a small off-white head. Caramel, toasted malt, fruity aroma. Taste is the same with notes of cocoa powder, light vinegar and sour fruits. End in a light tart finish. Interesting brew!

FatPhil (16368) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2017 330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn) (4:3:4:2:8=2.1)
Coppery, brief head. Dishwatery aroma, or do I mean pond-watery? Some sourness. Woody sourness in the taste, some weak cocoa pod aspect. Watery palate, a bit fizzy. Finish back to the pond-water, or do I mean puddle-water? Useless brew. We don’t care how overpriced this was; life’s too short to waste on stuff like this - good thing there’s a thirsty drainosaurus nearby.
Rerate: Tap (Koht, Tallinn) (4:3:4:3:7=2.1) Almost no aroma, just some - whatthefuck - vinegar. Brownish, ring head. Bland taste, a touch sour. Smooth palate, gentle carbonation, a touch of a sour bite. Useless brew. Waste of a rerate opportunity, should have skipped it.
