tfredvik (1985) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2016
Deep brown, clear body with a small, beige head. Strong aroma of dark dried fruits, dark caramel, chocolate and Belgian yeast. Strong flavour with a more pronounced and very pleasant Belgian yeasty feel than the aroma, dark dried fruits, sweet caramel, dark caramel, alcohol and some chocolate in the back. Moderate to heavy sweet taste, with a light to moderate bitter, long-lasting finish. Full-bodied, oily texture. A very successful quad!Cunningham (8079) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2016

Old note. Brown with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, raisin, with herbal and floral notes. Sweetish rich flavour of dried fruit with herbal notes and a good, lasting bitter finish Foffern (1927) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy deep reddish brown colour with a small, light beige head that fades fast. A sweet and a bit vinous aroma of dried fruit, leather, oak, alcohol, dried meat, chocolate and some red wine. Complex and pleasant. Tasteful and rich is also the flavour with addition of caramel and brown sugar. Maybe the alcohol is too much present. Some flowers in the aftertaste. Has a rich and silky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A pretty complex and rich beer on the sweet side. Beer5000 (6549) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2014
500 ml bottle. Clear, dark amber body with a decent beige head that fades. Aroma has dark malt, dry fruit, hint of wood and chocolate, delicate and a bit vinous. Flavor is sweet malt, dry fruit, brown sugar and moderate but balanced bitterness. Fine body and long lasting aftertaste. A nice, tasty and complex beer. Very enjoable.
