Finn (7916) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2016
Fra fat på bryggeripuben i hyggelig selskap med Halvor. Svart. Skum langs glasset. Litt lacing. Forsiktig aroma av røstet malt. Innslag av krydder. Smaken partfymert & kunstig.

3.1
larsga (7625) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2015
Small beige head. Slightly hazy dark red body. Fruity mineraly aroma with caramelly notes. Sweetish fruity mineral taste with raisiny notes. Mid-to-thin body. Mild, fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish earthy barnyard aftertaste with mineraly burnt grain and fruit notes. Some butter. Nice, drinkable, and vivid. Perhaps a bit thin. (0.2l draft at brewpub.)

On tap at Schouskjelleren. Dark brown colour with a beige head. Aroma is yeast, coriander, roasted malt, orange, cinnamon. Flavour is yeast, roasted malt, caramel, coffee, hop, cinnamon, coriander, orange, spices. Nice beer.

3.2
OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2014
Dark brown with a reddish hue. Low beige head. Christmas-spicy nose. Some gently roasted dark malts and a whiff of tinned fruits. Mid-bodied. Soft mouthfeel. Light sweet and peppery malt flavor. Spicy with soapy sidenotes. Discreet bitterness. Warm spicy ending. Drinks ok. A straightforward winter warmer. [Draft at Schouskjelleren, 13.03.14]

daje (4436) - NORWAY - APR 22, 2014
On tap at Schouskjelleren. February 7th 2014. Dark red body with a small tanned head. Aroma of brown malt, cinnamon, orange, good christmas associations here. Taste is carried by a medium thick malt base, cinnamon and coriander are notable but discreet. Sweet licorice finish with a low bitterness. A nice not over the top christmas brew.

3.5
Rune (13355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2014
From tap at the brewpub, 8.6 % abv. Deep rosewood coloured body. Spotty lacing from a faint, tan-coloured head. Fine aroma of dark malts and dark fruits. Grainy chocolate taste joined liquorice and discreet, dark, mid-sweet spices. Nice bittering hops to the ending added by warming alcohol. Well bodied. Tasty (Oslo 11.03.2014).

3.6
visionthing (5495) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 3, 2014
On tap at Schouskjelleren. Deep mahogany with a beige head. Sweet and malty with fruity notes, dried fruits, mild chocolate and malt.

3.6
espenra (1017) - Kurland, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2013
On tap at Schouskjelleren. Pitch black colour with a small brown head. Aroma is sweet and spicy. Notes of liqorice, cinnamon and coriander. Flavour is a bit soapy. Spices is also present but the coriander is mostly missing. Some cinnamon though. Still a bit thin.

3.5

Personal stats: On tap @ source

3.6
KnutAlbert (6771) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Very deep red. Spicy, bittersweet, deceivingly light for the ABV. Cherries, citrus. Pleasant bitter tail, the spices are not overplayed.
