4.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Draft in Finland. Creamy head, smooth going down, tasty but not overbearing. Note: had a bottle of the same in Ukraine. Tasted like two totally different beers. Go for the draft.

Draft. Copper in the glass with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is somewhat musty yet sweet with a large malt backing. The flavor finds caramel and honey with a hint of roast. Light in body.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer seemed desperate to get out of the can and into my glass. Strong smell of moldy beer cellar. A dark mahogany wardrobe-like colour. Pleasant on the palatte, smooth and got a smidgen of cinnamon to boot. A little watery at first but got more creamyness on the middles and after. Coffee and Dry Raosted nuts with a slice of burnt toast thrown in. Not a bad brew, probably couldn’t drink many of them though.

On tap at Balsam Cocktail Lounge, Oslo.
Deep red and clear with thick white head. This is a great beer when you’re not up for a hop-fest. Very easy drinking and a true classic

I love a beer that I can sit down to, and not have to worry about a long aftertaste, and a funny smell. This is that beer, great smell, creamy mouth-feel, itís just.. Good! Nice sweet flavour, and the colour is amazing. A dark brown that brightens into a reddish-gold colour. I will suggest this beer to anyone looking for something different, my only pet peeve is the $10.00 for 4 cans.. Other than that, great!

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 I would say, this is definitely a good weekend treat. It is a tad overpriced in this country, but it definitely goes down smooth and very flavorful. Love the roasted malt flavor and is definitely a great beer from a macro brewery. The only thing I find unpleasant about this brew, is the metallic odor that is noticed prior to tasting, but it thankfully does not translate to the actual flavour itself.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
can. faint aroma, looks real great clear, brownish, large thick smooth whipped cream like foam. Taste is vanilla, faint sugar and honey, some hop bitterness in the end. aftertaste is a combination of honey and hops. refreshing session beer. my only complaint is a small hint of a sour taste barely noticeable.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can with Nitrogen-smoothener. Pours nicely with that special show going as the beer settles. Very creamy and light to medium malty with some degree of sweetness. Hops are totally absent and I think that drinking too many of this particular beer will make you hate it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a beige head. Aroma is sweety and malty, some smoked notes. Taste is very malty, notes of caramel and roasted malt. A good surprise for a macro. A imple and good beer.
