Bottle. It’s an almost clear one, golden in color and with a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma suggests it has been stored for some time, with the hops quite subdued. Fluor, pine cones and a touch of alcohol in the aroma. Quite a lot of malty sweetness too. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming on the palate, with roasted hints, but mostly pine cones, malty sweetness, caramel and some fluor. Not to forget bitterness. A really pleasant one, certainly one I could repeat. 121110 gunnfryd (15516) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2013

Draft sample. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop, dark fruit and toasted malt and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer that exceeeded my expectations.

Sample from a 2008 batch at GABF 10/13/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. The beer pours a dark golden color with a medium foamy white head and a sticky ring of lacing. Aroma of hops, caramel malt and pine. Full-bodied with flavors of resiny hops, sweet malt and grain. The finish is hoppy with a bit of dark fruit in the aftertaste. Good overall.
