caesar (6936) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from Biernavigatie, BB Summer 2016, large sample. Cloudy brown color, short frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, spicy yeast, raisin, slight fruity. The raisins make it smell like an aged belgian dark, although its not aged at all, seeing the BB date. Slight sweet in taste, lots of raisin again. Aroma is a bit more complex, but flavor is all about raisins. Interesting stuff, though a bit one-dimensional.

mjs (6918) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 14.08.16, from Alko, 20131108) The beer poured brown. quite clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, caramel, treacle and hops. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, caramel, sweetness, hint of hops and low bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, sweet and bitter. The strong malty body is a sign for aging potential and aging may tune down the sweetness which was a bit too intense now.

Beer5000 (6261) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2011
330 ml bottle. Clear copper body with a fine, creamy beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, brown sugar and dry fruit with just a little hint of alcohol. Flavor of sweet malt, but not as sweet as expected from aroma, in fine balance with the bitterness and alcohol. Also caramel, candy sugar, dry fruit with a bitterness that becomes more obvious in the aftertaste. Long aftertaste with more bitterness and warming alcohol. It a fine beer, not perfect but Lervig is definitively into something here.

ClubGonzo (5603) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle. Deep amber body with a small, quickly disappearing off-white head. Nose is caramel, raisins, booze and a bit of bread yeast, which I find kinda strange. Taste is strong notes of caramel, with some tones of burnt sugar, roasted malts, alcohol and hints of raisins. Smooth mouthfeel. Burnt sugar again in the aftertaste, flanked by some boozy notes. Well integrated flavor profile, if not too overtly exciting all in all. A nice winter warmer, and a pretty drinkable - and likable - beer. Best one from Lervig that Ive had so far.
