Meilby (11495) - Kristiansand, - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle 375ml @ Geokkjer
Pours slightly hazy orange/amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, brown sugar, dried fruits, alcohol and oak. Taste is heavy sweet and light to medium bitter with a long fruity, oak, caramel and alcohol finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

[email protected] Hobbit Tasting. Copper colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, vanilla, some cognac, mild wood as well as some alcohol and fudgelike notes. Flavour is quite similar, but also has a bunch of ripe fruits, some raisins and figs to it. Very wellbalanced.

gunnar (9087) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2016
Shared bottle at RBHD, Tau. Pours murky deep golden with no head. Aroma of furniture polish, acetone and some deep toffeeish malts. Taste is heavy sweet malts, lots of alcohol burning to the finish. Too strong for me.

Holmen1 (5873) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2016
Fra flaske på RBHD-samling på Tau nov-16: uklar oransjegylden lex kort skum. Lukter fusel, alkohol, epler og gammel sherry. Smaken er også preget av noe tilårskomment. Lang og vinøs, halvtørr ettersmak.

abemorsten (3613) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2016
0,375 l flaske delt på RBHD-treff på Tau november 2016. Uklar kobberrød kropp med brokete hvirr skum. Søtlig umami, fusel og tørket frukt i nesa. Lukter litt gammelt. Kraftig søt smak med en god del alkovarme. Fyldig.

Sigmund (7464) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2016
Shared 375 ml bottle at local tasting, from Vinmonopolet. Cognac colour, a slight haziness, minimal off-white head. Strong aroma of oak cask and cognac, also less pleasant notes of fusel. Very sweet flavour, notes of raisins and other dark dried fruits, cognac and oak.

Shared bottle with RB/HD at Tau 01.11.16. Muddy dark orange. Small head. Aroma of fusels, furniture polish and green apples. Better taste, with old plum jam and sherry. Aroma is improving.

Zlotta (3273) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Sampled from 0.375 l bottle. Slightly hazy, dark amber with a beige layer. Sweetish-malty aroma of caramel, honey, vanilla and some almond. Very sweet and malty taste of caramel, honey, vanilla, some treacle and a touch of oak, followed by a rather long, slightly bitter, rather warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly effervescent and a bit oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice!

3.4

Frischer, hopfig hellmalziger Antrunk. Vollmundig, helle Holznoten, recht süffig. Zum Ende scharf, rund. Gut. 10/10/11/11//11
