Rune (12741) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2017
355ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Hamar.. Deep dark ruby body. Low, off-white head. Spotty lacing. Aroma of brown malts and raisin. Flavours of brittle caramel, dark dough and dreid fruits.

mateuszk (2670) - Poznań, POLAND - MAR 1, 2017

3.4
simontomlinson (365) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Minimal beige head immediately left flotsam on a dark brown still body. Rich aroma of dark fruits, demerara, & some dark spirits. Thick, almost chewy texture. Leaves a clean prickly feel on the back. To the fore this is sweet, syrup, brown sugar, slightly malty, dark fruits & hints of malt. This gradually changes over the tongue to tangy back with apricot, grape & an almost barrel aged aft.

3.3
Holmen1 (5867) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2017
Fra flaske på Mi2 Cardinal feb-17: brunsvart nesten uten skum, og akkurat nok karbonert til at inntrykkene kommer til sin rett. Sjokolade, mørke karameller, dessertkaffe. Myk bitterhet i den lange ettersmaken. Slank for sin voltstyrke, et velsmakende, maltdrevet øl som fikk mange fornøyde smil rundt bordet.

2.9
Holmen2 (3630) - NORWAY - FEB 13, 2017
Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 13.02.17. Clear daek brown. Small and pale brown head. Aroma and molasses. Taste of molasses, dark chocolate, dark syrup and dark malt.

3.4
tandembrauer (1485) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2017
Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours dark brown with little beige head. Aroma of caramel, dark bread, chocolate. Tastes sweet with some bitterness. Medium bodied.
