3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske delt med Ovesen etter tapping av vår EKG Single Hop: brunsvart, nesten uten skum (selv om det var futt i åpningen). Ubehagelig førsteinntrykk av aromaen (ristede nøtter og uluftet gymbag), men som etter en stund på magisk vis transformeres til overmodne solbær og bjørnebær. Smaken blir også preget av mørke bær og syltetøy. Interessant.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Leicht trübes Gold im Glas mit geringem Schaum. Leider schmeckt man heraus, dass man was gewollt hat, ohne dass es auch gelungen ist.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
0.33l swing top bottle. Orangish dark brown body no head at all. Aroma of chocolate, banana, cloves and lots of peppery booze. Taste of toast, cherry, caramel and lots of booze. The alcohol is way too obvious in this for me.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl ceramic bottle @ home, BBE 02/2017
Aroma has sweet and heavy-ish banana tones. Also some caramel. Flavour starts with banana but turns soon into very odd bush leave tones (old hops?) and finishes with ashy & tobacco tones. Totally unexpected flavour by the aroma and even without it. Not sure what to think about this; drinkability is not high and the bush leaves disturb me – but still I find this somewhat interesting.
Oh yes, gotta agree with oh6gdx on this. The acidicness of white wine is clearly present in the flavour bouquet among all the smoky and ashy notes.
