3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. An amber to brown colored beer with a finger-thick off-white head. Some lacings. The aroma is roasted tending towards burnt, with cloves, dried fruits, cellar notes and a chemical touch. Itís full-bodied and nicely carbonated, with a decent sweetness. The flavor has too much cloves I think, with roasted malts dominating. A fine bitterness level lasts for a while, but itís still the roasted malts and cloves that are most evident in the finish. A decent beer, but too much on the clove side. 141127

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark amber color (probably) with a fine tan head. Looks quite nice. Herbal, some spices, mild fruity and dark malt in the aroma. Not that bad but seemed a bit unbalanced. Medium 8+) body. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Soft carbonation. Weird flavor. Yeast, coffee, licorice, some fruity berry notes and a bit herbal. Ughh this was weird and not in balance with my body. Hopeless stuff.

200ml draught at the brewpub. Deep dark red coloured body with a ring to the rim of the surface. Dried fruity aroma with apricot to the fore. Sweet taste of apricot, herbs and dark berries. Some kind of spices are also included. A little yeasty tartness to the ending. Fine bodied. Pretty good (Oslo 08.12.2014).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Schouskjelleren. Very dark and quite hazy, bit difficult to see here in the basement. Herbal and spicy aroma with licorice, reminds me quite a bit about Riga balm. Fairly mslty, but herbs dominating, more cough sirupy than beer like. Certainly a strange thing. Not quite my kind of beer, but interesting enough. Hmmmm.
