omhper (23725) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2010
Bottled at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Near black, cloudy, rich lively head. Aroma of licorice and tobacco. Dryish and very lively. Soft, airy mouthfeel making the full body seem lighter. Resiny with some salty licorice, but remaining hugely drinkable for a 10% beer. Feels rather mild, and the resiny finish doesn’t have much impact.
