On-tap at Beachwood II,

A: Pours a super dark red with a firm cap of off-white foam. Nice look.

S: Crystal type malt, toffee with a hint of smoke.

T: Nice mix of red malt with a mild smoke undercurrent. Noticable earthy hop flavour.

M: Medium-bodied, soft carbonation character, Smooth and easy drinking.

O: Quite a complex beer for its ABV. These guys are my favourite Norse brewery for a reason.

Came across this beer while at the Lion's Pride up in Maine. I was told it was a blend of three different Haandbryggeriet beers, but was not told what. Poured into a chalace.

A - Pour was a deep, dark garnet with a big thick one finger creamy off white blanket that hung around for practicly ever.

S - Smell is of nice roasted malts and light smoke. Lots of sweet, carmel like fruits on the nose as well.

T - More of that light smoke followed through with lightly roasty sweet malts. More of the darker fruits with an earthy, almost musty funky flavour. Some odd chocolate in there too. Very interesting.

M - Nice mouthfeel with a crisp finish. Theres a spicey rye quality tucked away in there too. Very odd but nice.

O - This completely caught me off gaurd. I wondered what the hell I was drinking. It was like a mystery beer, with so many different things going on. Stuff was very interested and glad I was fortunate enough to try it.
