3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Cafe Sara. Misty deep orange with a light brown head. Unrevealing nose hinting at boiled carrots. Earthy, salty bitterness with green apples. Pungent thick hop juice with a long finish and a solid malt base. Medium to full bodied.
Bottle at home. Has a deep maroon color with beige and solid head. Its aroma has distinct hoppy notes of pine needles, resin, but also roasted malt, grass, chocolate and hints of pineapple. Clearly hops in flavor too with more pine and resin, but also nice malt sweetness with caramel and chocolate in the background. Grassy hops in the aftertaste that is somewhat dry. Surprisingly silky and soft mouthfeel due to low carbonation. Medium to full body. Has a balanced, distinct bitterness. The beer has a great balance between powerful hops and sweet caramel-chocolate tones. The mouth feel gets a little strange with so low carbonation. Otherwise sturdy ale that is both flavorful and aromatic. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2015

(Vinmonopolet, Kirkenes). Reddish brown colour, mediumsized brown head, which leaves lace. Aroma is sweet fruits, caramel, toffee and malts. Flavour is very dryish grassy/hayish hops and some sweet malts, which doesn’t manage to balance the hops up. Rather unbalanced.

Murky brown-amber color steady beige head. Aroma has lots of caramalt, berries and fruity notes. Medium to full-bodied. Lots of caramel, light unclean note, overriped fruits and nice bitter aftertaste. Heavy amber ale not so useful for any purposes.
Bottle from brewery, batch#53. Caramel, bread, nuts, resin on the nose. Dark brown amber, firm beige head. Taste of bread crust, some hints of toffee, lots of bitterness lasting long, hints of alcohol. Medium/full body, soft carbonation and good mouthfeel.

Bottle from VP Storo enjoyed at homelarsga (7539) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2015
Dark dark red, big creamy light tanned head. Smell of toffee, citrus, zest, spices and toasted malts. Moderate sweet, toasty, nice toffee, citrus and zest, faint chocolate. Medium bitter, alot of resins. Well balanced, very tasty.
Big beige head. Deep brown body with lots of floaties. Resiny
pineapple aroma with oily malty notes. Sweetish spicy resiny taste
with floral roasty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel.
Can also feel some of the floaties, unfortunately. Dryish resiny
tropical fruit aftertaste with dusty earthy roasty notes. Traces of
pineapple, too. Without the pineapple this would be a great beer. As
it is, it’s quite enjoyable. (0.5l bottle, from wine monopoly.) djoeye (4605) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2015
