200ml, tap, presented at a fine drinking temperature at the brewpub. Creamy, one-finger, tan-coloured head blanketing the glass. Fruity to the nose with slightly roasted malts beneath. Taste of brittle caramel and a good bite of dark fruits. Herbal dry endnotes. Nice and quite well bodied (Oslo, 16.03.2012).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler glass @ the brewpub. Deep near-black ruby body with a big creamy off-white head. Nose is tar, leather, hints of grains and smoke. Taste is leather, grains, bubble gum, dry hop tones and hints of chocolate. Full body and a rather nice blend, but what’s with the Berliner Weisse entry?

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampler @Schouskjelleren. A dark brown beer with limited clarity, topped by a finger of dense cream-colored head. Wheaty cocoa-scented malt aroma. Faint lactic acids with spicy-fruity tones. Dry cocoa/chocolate flavor. Light acidic and zesty fruitiness underneath. Chalky mouthfeel. Less than medium full. Mild resinous bitterness in the finish. A strange and tasty brew with good drinkability. Entered as a Berliner Weisse. Nah...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium beige head. Hazy opaque dark brown body. Very light
mealy funky aroma. Dry-sweetish-acidic herbal fruity taste with
mealy wheaty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel.
Dry-acidic minty strawy aftertaste (reminiscent of Tinkoff) with
herbal grassy roasty chocolatey notes. Interesting and very
different. Surprisingly drinkable, too. I quite like this
one. (0.2l draft at brewpub.)
