Holmen1 (6754) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2017
Tredje dag på slipp med Fridtjofen, flaske delt med skibsrederen mens vi venter på at arbeidslysten akal melde seg: rødlig rav med flott skum som varer. Frutkig bitteraroma og -smak med urter, nøtter, mørke fløtekarameller og jordaktige toner. Lekker bittersøt avslutning. Meget lettdrikkelig, så dette ble en god start på arbeidsdagen, og perfekt på soldekket.

Holmen2 (4394) - NORWAY - SEP 2, 2017
Bottle shared with JMD on board Fridtjofen at Tau slipp og båtbyggeri 02.09.17. Clear red copper. Persistent beige head and lacing. Fruity aroma and taste, with medium dark malt and English hops. Very quaffable.

Sigmund (8109) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2017
500 ml bottle, from Gulating Ølutsalg, Stavanger. ABV is 4.3%. Brown to dark amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma of malts, chocolate and dark berries. Malty flavour but fairly dry, slight roast, again notes of chocolate, hints of caramel, a little fruit. Moderate hops. Still much better than expected after reading the other ratings, more than nice enough to drink. Might well buy again.

2.8
BeerViking (5198) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2017
Bottle from the brewery, pours a deep red-brown with little head. Pleasing bitter cocoa and burnt fruit notes, with fruity esters, but somewhat oxidised and lacking condition.

2.8
BeerNinjaUK (496) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2017
Bottle from Cooperative. Pours rich hazy amber with fleeting head. Aroma strong and earthy with caramel, bread dough and slight coffee.

3.2
Vladivostok (491) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2017
Draught. Mid-amber with a complex caramel-based aroma and some sweet treacle notes in the mouth. Some autumn fruits evident and surprisingly bitter although the hops don’t actually give much else. Decent enough.

Finn (8556) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2016
Flaske 500ml fra Kjeller 5. Nyttårsaftenkos i heimen. Mørk amber. Middels høyt luftig skum som daler passe raskt. Aromaen en god blanding av malt & søt frukt. Smaken plommer. Litt tynn. Lett metallisk bismak. Avslutter tørt. Tørket frukt. Uklar siste kvelling. Mye bunnfall igjen på flaska.

Rune (14064) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2016
500ml bottle bought at Kjeller 5. Clear amber body, covering off-white head blanketing the glass. Mild cocoa nose. Caramel malty taste mingled with leafy hops. Decent bittersweet finish. Easy to drink and satisfying partner to my pizza (Tromsø 12.11.2016).

2.9
ERB92 (829) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2016
Aroma of fruits, caramel, malt and toast. Dark amber with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light to medium body with a average to soft carbonation. Overall a perfectly OK bitter, but a bit thin and boring.

3.1
