Many thanks for this bottle to McTapps. Brown color, small but steady white head. Grassy and malty aroma. Grassy, alcoholic, a bit sweetish flavor.

Beer from trade with Henrik - many thanks! It pours out of the bottle in a deep dark amber - brown colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of caramel and malt. Taste of caramel, spices, herbs, dark grains, straw, hops and barley. Very nice and easy to drink, I enjoyed it.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a perfectly clear cherry red, with no head at all. Aromas are malty, caramels and butter notes being the most noticeable, but also some dried fruits and spices. The taste is rather sweet, and should have had some bitterness to round it off. The mouthfeel is "macro-ish" and nothing out of the ordinary.
