Very nice dark beer. Tastes like a Guinness stepped up a notch in complexity and intensity - delicious for those cold winter nights.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2009
500 ml bottle. Very dark brown with a reddish hue. Clear. Tall light beige head that clings to the glass. Strong raisiny toffee aroma. Hints of cacao and dark chocolate. Powdery dry texture. Strong flavours of licorice and dark chocolate. Dark burnt caramel. Dry bitterness from roasted malts and clean English hops. Wonderful dark complexity. Raisins and caramel. Excellent beer for those dark and cold days at the end of the year.

Bottle. Dark brown/ruby. Frothy head that dissipates quickly to a thin white covering. Mid level lacing. Muted, but enjoyable aromas of chocolate malt. Nice malt flavour up front with a long smooth mouthfeel filled with chocolate and a touch of coffee. A complex hop bitterness tempers any sweetness in the mid palate, begging you to take the next sip. Perfect carbonation allowing a delicious mouthfeel. I love this style. Subtle and so typically understated English, but still full of wonderful flavour.

Hoppy and flower aroma from a brown body and tan creamy head. Bitter sweet balanced, and works perfectly with salty cheese.

500ml bottle. Rich brown ale with modest head. Delightful aromas of malt, dark chocolate and caramel. Richly flavoured, multi-layered palate with nutmeg, caramel and spice, slightly sweet finish. Gosh!
