Bottle. Really nice aroma of some fruit and fresh hops. Taste is really bitter with lots of hops thrown in there. Really refreshing and well crafted beer. KnutAlbert (6798) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2008
Dark brown, rich, malty.
A nice piney and hoppy dryness. Dryness dominates in the finish. A well balanced, moreish ale. mikkopen (1197) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2009
500 ml bottle. Dark reddish orange colour, thin white head. Sweet, fruity aroma with some caramel malts, nuts and hops. The flavour is malty, nutty, slightly roasted, with a nice finish of citrus and hops. Very nice. austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Bottled. Dark copper, fluffy beige head. Good dark nutty aroma with quite strong herbal hops and toffee, even chocolate. Flavor is more of the same, nice hops (grass & some pine), nuttiness, little wood and cocoa, nicely balanced. Lingering herbal bitterness. Really smooth silky palate, perfect for the style. A great ESB, this one makes my easter alright. Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a copper color with a mediumsized white head which fades away to a smaller one leaving some lacing. Aroma is interesting but not that powerful: roasted malts, coffee, cacao, milk chocolate and some pine needle hops. Flavour is really nice with a dominating hop character of pine needles, grapefruit and apricot which is balanced by a some nice malty cacao, coffee and toffee. Finish is nicely bitter. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, quite dry mouthfeel. Overall just another one of those tasty Oppigård brews!
