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. larsga (7690) - 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.

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.

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.
