mice (886) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Hieman punertavanvivahteinen musta olut beigell, aika nopeasti hvivll vaahdolla. Tuoksu varsin mieto, maltainen ja hieman pistv humalointia havaittavissa. Ei kovin erikoinen. Maku jatkaa tuoksun linjalla ja on selv pettymys. Pistvyytt ja hieman mausteisuutta sek jlkimaussa maltaista makeutta. Suutuntuma maksimissaan keskitytelinen, tuntuu turhan ohuelta. Ongelma lienee se, ett olut tuli otettua 10 asteen silytyslmptilasta vasta juuri ennen nauttimista. Tm pitisi ilmeisesti maistella huoneenlmpisen... Ja kyll, aukeaahan tm lmmetessn selvsti paremmin.

Cunningham (7386) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 13, 2016
Decent tasty evening ale.
Deep nutty color with a fine tan head. Ok lacing. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium (+) body and an ok carbonation for a beer like this. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Ok complexity in the flavor. Toffee, bready, dried fruits and some chocolate.
[Bottle from Systembolaget web order in Sweden]

2012 A: Deep deep brown with a hint of red to the colour. Small white/light brown head that disappears right away. Leaves a thin lacing at the edge of the glass. N: chocolate, caramel, hint of coffee, orange peel, small hint of dates, cinnamon, tamarind T: Tobacco, coffee, some dark fruits, plum, juniper berry, O: Quite promising on the nose but disappointing taste to it... Not very properly stored though, been sitting in my refrigerator for 3 years...

Aroma of dried fruits, spices and darker bread. Taste is chocolates, raisins dry fruit notes, some tar and licorice. More complex than I thought. Really nice brew.
