3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, nearly 3 years past the BBD. Pours clear copper brown with airy but stable light tan head. Clear aroma of fruit and caramel, with malty and hoppy notes and touches of yeast. Dusty and vinous flavour, with notes of hops and touches of caramel malt. Bitter and dusty aftertaste with sligtly vinous hints. Well-balanced and, yes, well-aged!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
18-JUN-2015, bottle @home.
Amber, hazy with lasting tan head.
Very hoppy aroma with grape fruit and pine. Taste the same with a lot of malt as well. Bread, cramel. Orange peel, spice. Dry hopped, clearly.
A bit tired hops but still I like a nice red ale. Medium+ body and carbonation. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. An unclear, dark brown beer topped by a dense, beige head of moderate size. The aroma is malty, boozy and quite hoppy. Pine cones, caramel, some oxidation, and a little meaty hint. Grapefruit too. It’s warming and full-bodied on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Citrus peel, caramel, pine cones, alcohol and roasted notes. Lasting bitter finish with too much warmth. A messy one. 140420

Flaske på Holmens oppstikkings- og tappedag: flott, veoppdragent beige skumDeilig humlearoma som bringer tanken hen på røde bær. Saftig og god smak, de har rett de herrerne på Stronzo - her er mye malt og mye humle, og sannelig også velbalansert!. Valget i baren vil være lett, men med denne tyngden vil nok en være nok.
