3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a low, frizzy tan head. Aroma is very stout-like, with tons of roasted malt, brown sugar, a hint of dark chocolate. There's some dark fruit as well, and maybe a hint of hops. Initial taste is sweet, creamy and malty, before giving up a slight bitterness. Body is medium full with low carbonation and a nice, creamy texture. Finish is a touch abrupt but there is a slight, lingering bitterness.

A perfect beer simply. Easy to drink with the meal. A bit expensive to buy, unfortunately. 49kr ($ 7) when it is in the shop. But clearly that this beer, I will buy again.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Systembolaget in Torp, Uddevalla. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a big creamy light beige head. Now THAT’s what I call a good-lookin’ beer! :-D Nose is dark malts and heavy rye tones, with light smokey hints of leather and licorice. The extremely assertive rye/dark malt tones continue in the taste, along with grains, licorice, leather, smoke and hints of alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonation. This one is definitely one of the best rye beers I’ve had; I just love it when the rye actually stands out a bit - and it should, at 22 % of the malt bill! :-) Very nice again from Amager.

Opaque black beer, thick brown head. Nice dark malt nose, coffee, seltzer minerals and fruit too! Airy semi soft palate, a little dry. Dark malt, bitterish coffee, subtle red fruit, hop bitterness - grapefruit. Sweeter fruits before the finish. Oddly not much rye spice. Bitter grapefruit aftertaste.
