[Bottle at Grand Tasting RBNG14 – Halden]
From a shared 75cl bottle at RBNG-14. Pours very dark brown with a beige head.
Dark and roasty aroma with dark berries, chocolate and dried fruits. Not as sweet, but quite refreshing and simply delicious!

Big 750ml bottle shared at the Grand Tasting at the RBNG-event at Fredrik 3.’s Hall. Near black body, tan-coloured head, fragile lacing. Dark malty aromas, coffee and chocolate. Delicious well-blended taste of mocha, raisin and coffee leading to a roasted bitter ending tingled with warming alcohol. Full bodied and velvety on the swallow. One of the very best this marvellous evening at Fredriksten festning (Halden 15.02.2014). abemorsten (3593) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014

Bottle, 75cl, at RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. A dark brown beer topped by a small, beige head. Fruity-sour aroma with with raisins and prunes. Roasted malts, coffee and a touch of salty licorice. The flavor has a pleasant malty bitterness, with some salty licorice and roasted malts. Coffee too. Full body and a soft and low carbonation. Medium dry. Sweet and salty finish with roasted malts. A really nice one, although I doubt the sourness should be as intense as this. 140215 tfredvik (1939) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
Black body with a tiny, bubbly, medium brown head that quickly disappears. Very strong aroma with roasted notes, massive chocolate and coffee. Moderate sweet taste and quite a lot bitterness, and then there’s a light berry sourness that doesn’t do the trick for me. I guess the sourness is what makes this beer special, but i’d rather have a regular, boring, non-sour imp stout. A nice beer, but I like Bohr’s elegant hydrogen atom model better.Meilby (11365) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
