Linnet (1832) - Karlstad, - OCT 19, 2010
Appearance: Big tan head, dopper colour, lacing. Aroma: Hoppy, earthy hops, spices, but where is the malts? Flavour: Here it is, the alcohol at least, but it is confused not knowing if it is an English BW or an American one. Mouthfeel: Sharp carbonation. Total: This BW suffers from an identity crisis.

Desverger (11431) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2017
Beer share at Lennarts, Malmö - Dark Amber pour with off white head. Sweet malty aroma and taste with some dark dried fruit, some brown sugar, caramel and treacle, alme spices into the finish.

abemorsten (3615) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2016
Delt 0,33 l flaske på RBHD-treff på Tau, mars 2016. Matt nøttebrun med små partikler. Lukter norsk lynghonning og malt. Kraftig søt med en god og balansert bitterhet. Fyldig og god å drikke. Denne var best før 06.2013, så den har tålt de ekstra årene meget godt.

3.8
Sigmund (7470) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2016
Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting. ABV is 10.5%. Cognac colour, slightly hazy. Aroma of fortified wine, oak and raisins. Oaky flavour, also distinct hops, hints of fortified wine and raisins again.

gunnar (9091) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2016
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours hazy deep Golden with some floaties, small white head. Aroma of heavy malts, toffee and grains. Taste is mellow, sweet with some honeyish malts, paired with some chemicals, not unpleasant, just different. Nice beer to finish this evening.

Holmen1 (5874) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2016
Flaske på RBHD-treff hos Sigmund, mars-16: rødlig kobber med fint skum. Vinøs aroma og smak med tørkede frukter, marsipan, honning og jordtoner. Moden, myk, fyldig og kompleks. Lang, vinøs ettersmak. En fin avslutning på en meget hyggelig kveld.
