Pretty good brew. I let the bottle warm up a bit out of the fridge first. Poured an average sized, light tan head that settled down quick and a little lace. Color is a clear red amber with plenty of active bubble trails. Aroma is malty, toffee, caramel, some milder dark ripe fruits, a little hop. Flavor’s almost exactly the same with some bittersweet flavors coming out. Good body and carbonation. Finish is like flavor and is extended. Session beer.

Sigmund (7390) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2011
500 ml bottle, a Christmas present from my nephew Einar, thanks! ABV is 4.9%. Copper coloured beer, moderate off-white head, nice lacing. Moderate malty aroma, notes of bakery and caramel, hints of red fruits. The flavour is fairly malty with distinct notes of caramel and brown bread, in a blind test I might first mistake this ale for a German dunkel. The earthy hops in the finish are more pronounced than in most dunkels, though. A very drinkable beer!

Bottle, courtesy of KimJohansen and Papsoe. A clear, amber beer with an off-white head. Malty and slightly bready nose with some citrusy hops. Toffee and fruity hops in the flavor, some bitterness and a hint of licorice. Medium to full body, semi-dry. The finish has caramel and some bitterness, and notes of licorice. Quite nice, especially like the licorice touch. 100814

Flavour is mild ashy, some caramelly sweetness, herbal bitterness with some black currants. Long lingering bitterness in the finish.
