3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small but persistent dark-creamcoloured head over beautiful red-brown beer. Bit sourish nose, superimposed upon dark, melanoidin-y malts and some buttery notes. Rosemary aroma. Rather dry, woody flavour, spicy, cacaopowder, and dried juniper or cypress branches. Medium bodied, bit watery but not too much. Little qua aftertaste. Nice, dry brown; spicy and light.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark color, quite thick tan head. The aroma I would say was pretty mild, "Belgian" spices, yeast, some fruitiness, and "wood".
The taste was also quite mild, some sweetness, malt and spices. Medium body and carbonation. Nuts and burnt tones in the finish. Ok beer but not the most memorable experience.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a pretty nondescript brown body and white head. Smell is vaguely malty. Taste is also straight up malty, with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Some subtle coffee notes in the background picks it up slightly, but not enough. Rather drinkable, but not noticeable in any way. Nøgne Ø can do better than this.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Batch 386. I’m drinking this under the influence of a slight cold. Weak smell of forest? Small head which disappears quickly. Dark brown-black colour.
Soft, full, medium bitterness. Pine needles and leather in the aroma, with some sweetness and a hint of rubber. Goes well with licorice, since there’s also licorice in the taste of the beer. Aftertaste like good coffee.
