Bottled 500ml (Vinmonopolet)
Dark ruby color, small beige head. Perfumic apple aroma. Medium-bodied. Light toastyness, fruit cake, apple, alcohol finish. I am not a big fan of akvavit and this is no exception.

AnG_BrgNor (673) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2016
Flaske. Lite karbonering og lite skum. Aromaen er ste frukter, malt og treverk. Smaken er ogs ste frukter, malt og treverk, men ogs anis og alcohol. Ganske god og fin og kose seg med, men tror ikke jeg hadde klart mer enn en flaske av denne pga at den er litt "voldsom".

metalspice (877) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2016
Nesten helt svart med hyt cappucinofarget skum. Mye lakris i duften sammen med noe eik og vanilje. Kjenner ogs et lite spritpreg. Lakrisen ogs fremtredende i smaken sammen med eik og karve. Lett bitterhet og noe fremtredende alkoholpreg. Behagelig munnflelse.

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2016
500ml bottle, batch 1021, bought at Vinmonopolet Sentrum Troms. Shared with fellow historian Ingebjrg. Almost black in the glass with a deep ruby glint. Low fawn-coloured head. Spotty lacing. Smell of oak vanilla and dark malts. Blending elements of chocolate, oak, and brittle caramel to the taste buds backed by dark fruits and berries. Drying malt-fruity ending joined by a touch of aquavit. Warming alcohol on the swallow. Fine bodied. Likable (Aperitif before Julebordet at my workplace, Troms 21.12.2016).

Dark brown with white head. Toffee, herbal and roasty. Sweet, hoppy and cardboard finish. Good. Rough in the end.
