4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The pour reveals a clear brown body with a creamy light tan head that dissipates slowly, leaving a complete cover upon the glass. Nose has a black walnut like sweetness, hints of caramel and hops, malt earthiness also noted, quite clean and refreshing. Start has a perfect malt presence, sweet with a modicum of bittering hops at the back, medium in feel. Finish has a masterful acidity, the hops pleasantly spicy, sweet and tart, dry aftertaste, a really nice representative to the style.

Medium body and high carbonation. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt and hops. Light bitterness. A pretty good and hoppy brown ale.

I'd say while not a favourite, not too far off. A solid brown ale with excellent malty flavours. From the bottle in Norwegian hotel bar. Probably should have had it before the pale ale as the hops in that tended to overpower. A good beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Dark brown colour, small head. Aroma is chocolate, some malt and some roasted malt. Taste is dominated by chocolate, like a cheap chocolate pudding almost (weird for a beer I think), some malt and some licorice. Not impessed.

50 cl, bottle conditioned. Lovely dark red-brown colour, Ruby in front of a light bulb, low visible carbonation. Restrained aroma of coffee and dark chocolate, sweet and roasted at the same time. Mouthfeel is dry and well carbonated, some hop bitterness. Flavours of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee and caramel. Long aftertaste. Great craft beer that has been around for quite some time now.
