Palme (4667) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2017
On tap @ Henrik. Looks warm and nice this. A cloudy deep peach orange, almost a little copper colored one this with a medium sized fading and islandy lacing off-white head. Like the sweet malty caramelly and almost barley wine strong nose. Red berries, concentrated and sticky. Quite pleasant. It tastes pretty good also this. More punch than the abv would suggest. Almost like a blend between a DIPA and a strong amber. It has a nice oily texture in the mouth and its about average on the carbonation. Well hopped for sure, but its lost more on the toffee caramelly sticky side. Grassy, some bitter marmalade and traces of red apples. Lots of flavor, really warming and quite good. 17.02.2017

rosenbergh (11475) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2017
16 oz can. Canned on 13/Oct/2015. From beerrepublic.eu.
Clear mahogany color with a small off-white head. Sweetness, raisins and malt in the aroma. The flavor is old hops, some bitterness, dark fruits, raisins and sweet maltiness. If there was some hoppy freshness its long gone. They are selling some seriously old beers.

Boutip (6273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle: Poured a dark amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy and resinous hops notes is very enticing. Taste is a complex mix of citrusy and resinous hops notes with some light sweetness from the malt base. Very limited amount of bitterness with good floral notes. Body is fuller then average with good carbonation. Very nice mix between a solid malt backbone and some fresh hops notes.

pours an inviting amber brown with thin lacy head. the key aroma and ensuing flavor is stone fruit and prunes. there is a decently sweet bitter finish on the backend. a spicy, warming winter sipper.
